    Cool, ZVS would definitely be the way to go for a Tesla coil application.

    "LOPT" stands for "Line Output Transformer". It's another name for a "Flyback Transformer".

    Yes, I'd be interested to see a video of the output of the flyback transformer when it's not connected to the Tesla coil.

    May I ask why you keep uploading GIFs instead of actual videos? You can insert YouTube links, for example, using the "Insert" button at the top of the post editing pane.

    Not for me. It takes forever for your GIF to load, frame by frame.

    It finally arived!
    It does not seem to have a centertap for my coil wich confuses me.. since every other flyback zvs driver seems to have a centertap.
    So i will just let you guide me trough the process so i dont accedentaly kill it.
    My new bench power supply(30v 10amps) also arrived (wich i love :D). 33988250_2138739736355559_1525384689173397504_n.jpg 33942320_2138739579688908_4111213777439948800_n.jpg

    you could also use an oil furnace ignition transformer. when i was 14, i found one in the rubble of a building that had been torn down... that thing was great for jacobs ladders and tesla coils.
