TSSP: **Theory Notes - Secondary Basics** |

**pn2511** A document introducing the theory of Tesla secondary resonators.

#### Updated: 19 Jul 2008

These notes provide a basic introduction to the theory of solenoid
resonance, with the emphasis on Tesla secondary resonators. The solenoid
is described in terms of distributed physical reactance functions and
these are used to derive the differential equations for the solenoid.
The solutions relevant to Tesla secondary operation are examined and
proper definitions are given for the effective capacitance and inductance
of the coil.

The reader will require some familiarity with calculus and phasor
notation, in addition to a general appreciation of the elementary laws
of electromagnetism and circuit theory.
