Is it possible to use an SCR to make a small solid state tesla coil?
From what I understand, an SCR is like a diode that can either be turned on to act like an everyday diode, and it will only turn back off when the power is cut. With this understanding, will this circuit work? if not, can you explain? even if it doesn't work as a tesla coil, will it work as a fence charger (with a trigger transformer or ignition coil?)
