View Full Version : The Fabled Tesla Coil

Hi, I am not sure to put this thread but I thought here is the best spot. Anyways, almost anyone knows about the Tesla Coil created by Nikola Tesla. However, what is the purpose of this device? To just test and shoot sparks everywhere? Maybe something more?

Anyways, he also had a vision to have free energy for the entire world with the use of "Radiant Energy". To read more about this, please refer to here: http://www.educate-yourself.org/fe/radiantenergystory.shtml
or here: http://www.sciencedaily.com/articles/r/radiant_energy.htm

Maybe the Tesla Coil is the answer for Radiant Energy? Here is a diagram of the Tesla Coil as we know it:


What would happen if you were to reverse the order in the above diagram? The Coil would be "receiving Radiant Energy" which would go to ground/ secondary which would then travel to the primary and eventually go to a transformer to create energy.

I would like to know the communities thoughts about this, especially those with a Electrical Engineering background.

Really late response, but you can use another coil to receive power from a tesla coil, there is a catch however. Wireless electricity is grossly inefficient. Think of it like 50,000 watt radio station. It doesn't matter if you have 10 or 10,000 listeners,the antenna will always be radiating 50,000 watts of energy into the air.

Yes but we could benefit largely, think about cars that can run on electricity alone. With all that energy, we can power all transportation and more. Thank you for your feedback. :)
