Hello everyone. I did not have any electronics education, so I don't exactly belong here. But, I have been spending years reading about the "free" energy devices in the big downloads, such as Robert Nelson's and Patrick Kelly's. So I'm familiar with the field.
The Zero Voltage Start setup seems to be similar to the bucking coils arrangement. If you've seen the videos of a ZVS, you know there's a white flame associated with the spark output. That white flame is evidently Tesla's "burning nitrogen". The electric spark actually does burn nitrogen, in the air, into nitrogen oxides, like wood/carbon burning into CO2. That's something you don't see with our ordinary Tesla coils, or other high voltage sparks. There's somewhat of a caution with it. When Tesla found it, his grew into a large ball. ... Bob
