Use for a Tesla Switch

Here is the link that I am currently using as a source of information:

So far to me it seems like these are the main parts of the Tesla Switch:

* Reuse of current.
* Sharp switching.
* Many switches per second.
* Inductive load to generate back EMF.
* Inductive load for resonance.

ksmarke,
  I designed a solid state Tesla switch circuit a year or so ago  at another forum that you are welcome to use if it helps you.  I did it with isolation transformers first and a second version that uses opto-isolators. I also simplified it a bit and it is adjustable from a few cycles per second to about 10 KHz.

It is located at Overunityresearch.com, in my bench Room3327, Tesla switch thread, there is a little other information there but most of what we had done on it was deleted by a member when he decided to leave.

Regards
Room

While I was on energeticforum.com, I contacted Matthew Jones concerning the switch, and he sent me a link to his Simple Switch. http://www.matthewcjones.com/power/SimpleSwitch.jpg

There are a few questions that need to be asked when dealing with new material like this.
1) What were the part numbers of the parts used?
2) What types and sizes of batteries can be used with this setup?
3) What frequencies and duty cycles should we switch at?
4) What are the specks on the transformer used in the diagram? Number of turns?
5) What are the output specks? Voltage? Type of load used? AC or DC or Pulsed DC?
6) How was this switch tested? What types of equipment were used?
7) How do we take measurements of the switch?

I also made a Circuit Simulator representation of the switch. I used the following link to  simulate the switch. http://www.falstad.com/circuit/
I attached the code for the switch as I drew it in the applet.

I do not know how to simulate a transformer with a primary and a secondary winding, so let me know what you think.

The transformer is a 3KVA body transformer.

The switches in the setup need to be switched at opposite times. Meaning that if S1 is open then S2 is closed and vice visa.

If you have both opening and closing at the same, then there will be fires and / or explosions.

The use of the Tesla watch is explained in a nice way in your thread post. Thanks for such helpful post.

Katherine,

You may want to look into this guy's circuit:

http://www.overunity.com/12232/6-battery-tesla-switch-power-mosfet-circuit-uses-no-schottky-power-diodes/msg318463/#new

It sounds like a variation of Matthew Jones' six battery switch.
