Ducretet Tesla coil

description

Summary

Small medical Tesla coil used for electrotherapy around the turn of the century, manufactured by the Eugene Ducretet firm of Paris. The coil itself (T) is immersed in a tank of oil to prevent current leakage due to corona discharge. It is connected to a Leyden jar (L, right) to make a tuned circuit, and a spark gap (e), powered by a Ruhmkorff coil (not shown)

One of the high voltage terminals (E) is attached through a wire to a pointed electrode on an insulated wand which produces a brush discharge which is applied to parts of the patients' body to treat various ailments. The other high voltage terminal is attached to a ground electrode which the patient holds.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - Technicians attach a crane to the Pump Flow Control Subsystem (PFCS) in the Space Station Processing Facility. The PFCS pumps and controls the liquid ammonia used to cool the various Orbital Replacement Units on the Integrated Equipment Assembly that make up the S6 Photo-Voltaic Power Module on the International Space Station (ISS). The fourth starboard truss segment, the S6 Truss measures 112 feet long by 39 feet wide. Its solar arrays are mounted on a “blanket” that can be folded like an accordion for delivery to the ISS. Once in orbit, astronauts will deploy the blankets to their full size. When completed, the Station's electrical power system (EPS) will use eight photovoltaic solar arrays to convert sunlight to electricity. Delivery of the S6 Truss, the last power module truss segment, is targeted for mission STS-119. KSC-04pd1477
