Hello BOOMers, there are debates on that my circuit which has capacitor parallel to high voltage source is worse than the other type I also showed at 0:02 which has spark gap parallel to the high voltage source, because DiodesGoneWild mentions it here: nosections.info/green/2IigaHusoImMz50/video.html While the purpose of this video was not to make a proper commercial transmitter, because FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHO BOTHERS MAKING A COMMERCIAL SPARK-GAP TRANSMITTER NOWADAYS... both circuits lack many components that could make them better, both would work fine with proper components and both have pros and cons. Like in my circuit high voltage resonance frequency is right across the transformer and although mostly filtered, could stress the transformer to some extent, while if the spark gap is across transformer, it could short the high voltage for extended period of time overheating the transformer. In either case having a larger series inductor to the output of the transformer could protect it better. But WHO CARES?! Both circuits work for demonstration purposes, and need improvement for commercial use. So don't go selling this junk to make money!!

ElectroBoom it would appear that I have accidentally created a high voltage resident frequency device when building my three-phase rotary converter and my Milwaukee drill was right next to the capacitors upon a few startups the LED flash light on my drill would come on until I properly tuned the capacitance of each of the legs 😂 was pretty curious as to why that was happening but after your detailed explanation of how it works I'm pretty certain I've created one by accident 😂

The Dane Valdemar Poulsen did make an arc transmitter in the year 1902 together with the ingenier Peder Oluf Pedersen. So no it's not the first ever eventet... Sorry Mehdi. da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valdemar_Poulsen#Buegeneratoren

Wireless communication developed all over the world around the same time, so there really isn't just one person or group that can be credited for the technology. Rowland developed his spark-gap transmitter in 1889, but Poulsen and Pedersen were among the first to design a transmitter that output a continuous waveform rather than pulses.

I like the idea. It isn''t an air gap, it's a high voltage switch. "Ahh, the high voltage switch smells so good today. Should take a walk!"

Fun video! You can also do morse code with a series of small hand grenades interspersed with larger ones. Would likely create less interference. Your AARL Coil calculator is in inches of diameter, not exactly the same as the 60 MM you measured

When I was a child I had a Red Radicon remote control Bus that transmitted a signal to control the Bus with a Spark-Gap Transmitter. Sometimes when the bus was close to the refrigerator, the arc of the compressor Contactor engaging would make the bus start or stop or turn. Here is a demo of one of these buses: nosections.info/green/u2lzcGOGanqvzqo/video.html

Odd question but I have an engine powered by two AAA batteries. The Wire from the batteries to the engine is very not insulated. I wonder what kind of damage happens when both wires are exposed to whatever Energy's that may be around it. Would that break the engine? Things like my tablet give off enough electricity that if I were to touch the cable to the screen I could control the tablet with the cable. But my thinking is that that energy flows through both ends positive and negative and I figured they do not have rectifiers on this machine. If you're wondering what kind of device well it's a toy that turns around and 360 like one of those bottles that dance only it's not a bottle it's a hot dog. You get what I mean. Anyway when placed under stress the engine seems to knots like it very much and this type of hotdog is meant to well you know so stress is expected in its natural operation possibly. Also how damaging is it to force the engine to move on its own.? I hear so many times don't turn your flat fan blades when the fans not moving something like that. If you ever want to order one and find out break it open and find out what is going on inside of it and why it's so terrible of a product I would watch that video because the technology is interesting and also because I want to see you open up a hot dog. Or at least mention the potential dangers or potential solutions to what may have happened to my hot dog. Like running a magnet on the coils probably bad or might help. If only just a small amount of magnetic? Or should I anti-magnetic to let the energy out of the engine? Not like I can't buy a new hot dog. It's one of those hot dogs you stick between your buns okay

Insulation won't make a huge difference when it comes to field effects like moving magnets near the wires. We insulate wires so that they don't touch and cause shorts. Your tablet's touch screen reacts to the wires because a touch screen is technically one half of a capacitor. When you touch the screen with your finger or some other conductor, you form the other half of the capacitor and charge accumulates at the point you touched (or the point the wire touched). This can be detected by the screen and used as an input.

Wouldn't a TVS diode be able to suppress the induced voltage at the primary side? I mean, is it a possibility that the welding of the relay contacts was caused by increased current flow to the contacts? Please give me a proper explanation for this.

Once again Great video! One question: why do you use such a complicated way for calculating the inductance for the coil. Sure that is quite accurate but you could just measure the resistance, connect the coil to AC source that has known voltage and measure the current. Then (inductive reactance) = ((U / I) - resistance). Then you can find your inductance by L = (inductive reactance) / (2*pi*f).
