Class E amplifier driven Tesla coil

Admin/ November 20, 2020/ Electric Energy

I have uploaded the latest video of the Class E amplifier lecture. This time I drive a Tesla coil. This video should be linked under Movie as alternative energy project but it is also about learning how to do it first. Only a handful of people did ever build a

Class E Radio frequency amplifier simulation and build

Admin/ November 16, 2020/ Electric Energy

After various simulations and tests I am happy to announce the release of the video about the build Class E amplifier for a target frequency of 500 KHz. I have added under data sheet and diagrams a new section of Inductors where you find the core I use for the

Class E Radio frequency amplifier and simulation

Admin/ November 7, 2020/ Electric Energy

In short succession I like to announce the availability of the next video in the calculation, simulation, and experimentation series. The famous Class E amplifier. I did replicate simulation and calculation from a beginner’s guide which I made available on my website. I have also added a section to walk

Class A versus Class D amplifier power analysis and simulations

Admin/ November 5, 2020/ Electric Energy

Hello I have made available the next video under the category calculations, simulations and experimentations. I compare the power efficiency of a Class A amplifier to a Class D amplifier. The power analysis is done in spice and all files are available for you to download under Diagram and datasheets.

How to measure an inductor new video release

Admin/ October 22, 2020/ Electric Energy

I produced a new video in a new category section. The section is called Passive Components. It is under research and courses. In this video I will point in the right direction how you can get the inductor value of an Air core coil or any other inductor you might

Calculation, simulation experimentation

I just have posted on YouTube the process I like in future to attempt for each projects. It will allow for anybody to follow up on the process without questions. This will close the gap between a concept or diagram and the final build. The link of the video is

IR 2184 and IR 2103 Half H – Bridge Driver

Admin/ October 9, 2020/ Electronics

Hello As mentioned yesterday, I have produced the next video in the Performance evaluation series of the H – Bridge Driver. You find the video on the same page under research and courses and electronic design. It is available to Basic and Full members only click here Namaste, TheOldScientist

New performance evaluation series available. The NCP 5181

Admin/ October 7, 2020/ Electric Energy

I have made available the second part of the performance evaluation of the H- Bridge driver NCP 5181 from ON Semiconductor. The test does compare it to the IR 2110.  Both IC’s have independent inputs and can therefore be configured in three modes. Video is available to Basic and Full
