I have been working on a Tesla Coil for about 2 months now and need to know what you think I am doing wrong. Obviously, I havent gotten it to work yet. I am using 5 microwave oven transformers wired in a parallel circut, each is rated at 600W. The Primary coil is 40" in Diameter, and stands 19" tall (8 rounds of 3/8" copper tubing). The secondary is 4.5" in diameter and stands 36" tall (874 rounds of 19AWG enameled copper wire). My capacitor bank consists of 40 Air conditioning unit caps rated from 1uf to 160uf. ANY help would be nice.
Re: What are your suggestions for a more efficient Tesla Coil?
