Audio Modulated Dual Resonant Solid State Tesla Coil AMDRSSTC - WWU 2013 EET Senior Project
Nikolas Knutson-Bradac


The AMDRSSTC is a solid state Tesla Coil driven at resonance by control logic and an IGBT half bridge. The system is modulated from RF to sonic frequencies by OOK modulation controlled remotely by user and MIDI 1.0 input. The AMDRSSTC is designed to be used as an audio visual exhibition piece to interest prospective students in the STEM fields of study. The audio/visual spectacle of the system as well as MIDI functionality lends itself to being a prop/instrument in stage productions, concerts, or art exhibitions.
