This is actually a low powered Tesla coil. The main factor is that a Tesla coil is an air core resonant transformer ( exactly what is shown here ). There is no iron core in this unit, it is also tuned to its own resonant frequency, hence the need to have a proper amount of turns on the primary and location of it as well. Also the DRSSTC is a solid state Tesla coil. A Tesla coil does not need to be spark gap driven to be classified as a Tesla coil.
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!
I completely agree with you on all aspects of this reply. I love how you stated that 500 volts isn't high voltage. I love tesla coils ( especially spark gap because of the high voltage transformers used ). I built one that uses a 6kv trasnformer.
Good work. Another great way is to use an H-bridge configuration. I used IGBTs for the transformer driver and a set of ucc mosfet drivers. The H-bridge outputs a very clean ac sine wave.
