Tesla Coil Question

  1. Jan 26, 2017 #1
    So here i am thinking of Tesla coil. I have read that Tesla coil can sustain itself by getting the right "resonance". And i'm wondering how if 2 Tesla coil separated by a magnet based turbin to power the both of it. I read the theory that Tesla coil can amplify the energy because it was based on primer and secondary bobbin (google translate say this) or to exact like transformator. Can anyone explain to me in a simple way, please ?

    Try Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_coil that article explains the basics. Wikipedia is also available in many languages, so you may be able to find the article in your native language.

    if you read that, then you are reading the wrong info (bad info)
    there will never be more energy than what was initially put into it ( that goes for any device, electrical or mechanical)
