do you know? Wireless power transfer was discovered by Nikola Tesla 1.5 century ago!
Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest minds ever on the earth, a Serbian-American physicist engineer and inventor, famous for his numerous inventions in the field of electricity. He discovered alternating current, make long-distance power transmission possible. He has numerous discoveries with different frequencied electricity. He claimed to discover the technique & the device for transmitting & receiving electrical energy wirelessly, without any physical medium. Nikola Tesla gave a demonstration too. He also planned for transferring electrical power by using ions already present in the ionosphere of the atmosphere. It might be possible to transfer power from one part to every other part of the earth.
How does Tesla Coil work?
The working of the tesla coil is much similar to the transformer. There is a primary and a secondary coil. The power source is connected to the primary coil that is connected with a capacitor, which soaks up the charge from the power source.
The changing current in the primary coil produces a magnetic field around it and collapses instantly and again repeats the same. This generates the electric current in the secondary coil. A huge amount of potential difference generated between the secondary coil and the capacitor connected to it. Eventually, the voltage in the secondary capacitor gradually becomes so high that it bursts loose in a dazzling electric current blast.
Can you find the Tesla Coil now a days?
Yes, Obviously, You can build it yourself in-home or you can find a small version of his prototype in stores named mini-Tesla coil or Tesla coil. If you are reading this article and don’t have any knowledge of the tesla coil at all, you might find it very much interesting.
