How Vacuum Tubes Work

Vacuum tubes are critical to Tesla’s/Dollard work because only they can handle the incredibly high voltages required. Regular transistors would simply explode under the load.

Vacuum tubes alos require special power supplies. An excellent technical summary of which power supplies are best for vacuum tubes and why can be found here.  Center tap transformers are also a piece of the puzzle.

    Hi TechZ,

    You write: “Vacuum tubes are critical to Tesla’s/Dollard work because only they can handle the incredibly high voltages required.”

    Surely that depends on the particular project, and not all possible “Tesla/Dollard” work? We need a statement of explicit goals from Eric, if people are to be asked to contribute. For example, at present we are given no idea whether the new lab is going to build an earthquake detector (ala his previous lab), power or data transmission tower (ala Wardenclyffe), an over-unity energy source (i.e., energy from somewhere else, ala the Sun as described by Eric), or whatever.

    Is it going to be like JLN Labs?

  • I needed to thank you for this fantastic read!! I absolutely loved every bit of
    it. I have got you book-marked to look at new things you post…
