Tesla drawing 1899 - Evolution of Tesla transformer

description

Summary

Drawing by Serbian American inventor Nikola Tesla showing stages in his evolution of the high frequency resonant transformer used in his Tesla coil. He developed the Tesla transformer around 1891-1892 although this drawing was published in 1899. He describes the steps in the accompanying article:

(1) Closed-core transformers used at low frequencies

(2-7) Rearranging windings for lower losses

(8) Removed iron core

(9) Partial core

(10-11) Final conical Tesla transformer

(12-13) Tesla coil circuits

The high Q RF transformer designs invented by Tesla have been used in radio transmitters to the present day.
