The Ultimate Tesla Coil Design and Construction Guide is the first book to explain both design and construction of the Tesla coil in a comprehensive manner. This book is full with over 200 detailed illustrations and coverage of all operating theory and calculation methods for Tesla coils.This book also includes:-Introduction to Coiling-Designing a Spark Gap Tesla Coil-Inductors and Air Core Transformers-Capacitors-Spark Gaps-Using Computer Simulation to Verify Coil Design-76 Hands on Worksheets-Performance forecasts based on characteristics and calculations-A Biography of Nikola TeslaFor an engineer that wants to make exacting calculations for his/her first Tesla coil this book has all the mathematical legwork done for you. This book would also be very useful as a supplement to electrical engineering courses in helping the student understand practical applications and how to perform SPICE analysis, one of the staples of everyday electrical engineering.About the Author:Mitch Tilbury found himself graduating high school in 1975 and leaving for boot camp in the U.S. Marine Corps. A twenty year military career as an electronics technician and CH-46 helicopter crew chief in the U.S. Navy brought him to retirement in 1998. He graduated Summa cum Laude from Southern Illinois University in 1991. Mitch transitioned to the space industry as a Reliability Engineer and Engineering Analyst where he currently conducts worst case performance, electrical stress, and failure modes and effects analyses, reliability predictions and a host of engineering tasks which assist in spacecraft design.
