Modern Day Tesla Coils - Primary Switching
... Modern day transistor or vacuum tube Tesla coils do not use a primary spark gap ... Solid-state Tesla coils use the lowest primary operating voltage, typically between 155 to 800 volts, and drive the primary winding using either a single, half-bridge, or full-bridg ... tube coils typically operate with plate voltages between 1500 and 6000 volts, while most spark gap coils operate with primary voltages of 6,000 to 25,000 volts ...
Invention Of Radio - Development of Radio - Discovery of Spark-gap Radio
... In 1879, David Edward Hughes discovered that sparks would generate a radio signal that could be detected by listening to a telephone receiver connected to his new microphone design ... He developed his spark-gap transmitter and receiver into a working communication system using trial and error experiments, until eventually he could ... the radio receiver technology of David Edward Hughes surpassed the simplistic spark-gap device that would first be studied by later radio researchers ...
