Does anyone know how a Tesla magnifier works? Answered

I am considering making a Tesla magnifier once I've finished my Tesla coil. I know allot of details about its operation conditions but do not understand how the voltage gets stepped up in the extra coil, can anyone explain it?


Yes, its a separate, resonant coil ,,magnetically coupled to the secondary on the main coil, and pumped by it.

I thought I would return to this question just how does the voltage get stepped up by the extra coil? (that is the only part I don't understand)

What do you mean by that? Isn't it something to do with the secondary coils resonant frequency being 2-4 times greater than the extra coil?

The process is know as induction.
