Abstract

Tesla transformers are parts or devices that generate a voltage from a high-frequency, damped oscillating wave that uses resonance to move energy from the primary to the secondary. The working principle of the Tesla transformer utilizes the principle of electromagnetic induction resonance from a series of capacitors and inductors that resonate at high frequencies. Tesla transformers can be used in insulation testing. Insulators play an essential role in the operation of the electrical system, so their performance needs to be considered. Testing the insulator using a Tesla transformer has the advantage that it is cheap and does not require a large area. Insulator testing is done by varying the distance, type of electrode and frequency of the test voltage. Testing the insulator is due to the distribution of the electric field at the electrodes, which will affect the breakdown voltage. The test results of the Tesla transformer have a better comparison value when compared to the test transformer. This test module is expected to help find out whether the Tesla transformer circuit based on solid-state components can be used as an alternative to high-voltage testing by comparing the test transformer test.
