Tesla coil is essentially an high-frequency air-cored resonant transformer. Tesla coil is invented by a Serbian scientist named Nikola Tesla in 1891. The Tesla coil is one of Nikola Tesla's most famous inventions. Tesla coil is generally used to generate high voltage at high frequency. The generation of output voltage is different from the operation of standard transformer. The secondary voltage of Tesla coil is not depending on the tum ratio but depending on the ratio of capacitance and inductance of the primary and secondary circuit. The components of Tesla coil are high voltage transformer, primary capacitor, primary coil, spark gap, secondary coil and top load. Spark gap is a switch that triggers the resonant of Tesla coil. Tesla coils are unique in the fact that they create extremely powerful electrical fields. Large coils have been known to wirelessly light up florescent lights up to 50 feet away, and because of the fact that it is an electric field that goes directly into the light and doesn't use the electrodes, even burned-out florescent lights will glow. This project is to wirelessly light up fluorescent lights, to see with our own naked eyes how the tesla coil work and how the wireless power transfer works. In designing Tesla coil, the parameters need to determine first before the actual construction. The parameters and calculations of Tesla coil are determined by the aid of software such as Tesla Map. Tesla coil is considered as an old invention and it barely can be seen but its theory of operation is applied on the modem application such as spark gap radio transmitters, medical x-ray, violet ray and particle accelerators
