Solid state coil sites
Here are a few of the ever growing list of solid state coilers.
If you would like to have your site added here, just email jan.wagner at
(list not ordered by any criteria)

Richie's Tesla Coil Web Page
brilliant theory intro on conventional and solid state coils
in addition to other interesting stuff, their site also has solid state coils - construction progress, pics, schematics, PCB layouts.

Alan Sharp's home page
some experimentation, notes, tips and schematics, and three solid state coils presented

Marco Denicolai - project Thor
A modular HV DC solid state resonant power supply with schematics and theory. This supply (smaller than a pole pig but much more power) can be used to t.ex. power a conventional TC.

Dan's Tesla Coils
Very good site with a couple of solid state projects as well - with full schematics. Has some examples for spice simulations.

Solid State Tesla Coils
Don Klipstein's theory page on SSTCs, presents some ways for TC driving

Solid state magnifier
on Chris Hill's site, it is a cleaned-up schematic of Alan Sharp's push-pull topology SSTC

Switch mode power supplies
a short (but good!) explanation of different "classic" switching power supply topologies - a SSTC is nothing else but a resonant switching power supply, as used, for example, in solid state welding power supplies.

Tjaco's design graveyard
schematics for a simple half-bridge as well as a driver circuit

C. Willis's SSTC
a 300W half-bridge, progress and notes

Chester's SSTC
Another very nice SSTC, with schematics and PCB layouts.

Chris Swinson's SSTC
Nice page with "lab notes" on experimentation progress.

Dr. Gary Johnson's site
Some documents on renewable energy, Tesla coils, and some solid state work.

A very nice page on gate drive xfmr design, highly recommendend!

RayeR's homepage
Various detailed TC projects

Matt Behrends TC site

John Freau's home page
he sells beatiful hand spun toroids

Ross-O's Tesla coil

There are many more good TC pages, at least a few hundred or so. Many of them can be found via the webring, and search for "tesla". Or just try plain old


Scopeboy's TC pages with OLTC experiments and infos, good

Roffesoft TC pages some pics
