If you are working in the electrical engineering field or you are interested in tinkering with certain devices, then you probably understand the importance of having a trustworthy assistant.
Although you can pay for qualified aid, relying on third-party software, such as TeslaMap, can be less expensive, although not ass efficient.
Depending on the build, this application requires either .NET Framework or Java Runtime Environment installed on your computer.
This application comes with a minimalistic design that allows you to explore it freely and familiarize yourself with its capabilities. Tooltips complement the utility's simplicity by providing you with handy details about your project, such as default voltage values or typical capacitance attributes.
However, most of the data this application works with is highly technical. Therefore you need medium to advanced electrical engineering knowledge in order to operate it without efforts.
You can design Tesla coils from scratch by relying on this application and the several useful functions that it offers you. For instance, it is possible to specify various parameters, such as NST input voltage and frequency, coil winding height or primary capacitance, and the application displays the corresponding output values.
Furthermore, you can use the additional calculator tools to enhance your designing experience. It is possible to display MMCs (multi-mini-capacitors) in a table by specifying attributes such as each one's capacitance, DC voltage, desired capacitance and a maximum number of capacitors.
After you finish your project, you can export it to your computer for safe-storing. Supported formats include HTML, TXT and XML, therefore you can also choose to print your schematics if you want to.
In conclusion, TeslaMap can aid you in designing Tesla coils, but note that in order to use it without difficulty, you need an advanced level of understanding electrical engineering concepts.
