Tesla's nonlinear oscillator-shuttle-circuit (OSC) theory, compared with linear, nonlinear-feedback, and nonlinear-element electrical engineering circuit theory.

... There are already a lot of papers and books that explains Tesla's apparatus and experimental achievements, from which the work of Corum & Corum should be highlighted (some are listed as references, [22][23][24][25]). A jet another comprehensive approach to the electric circuits of Tesla by nonlinear oscillatorshuttle circuit (OSC) theory is given in [26], in which Tesla OSCs are considered to be analogues of quaternionic systems. 2 There is a claim in [30], but never confirmed independently, that Tesla successfully lighted 200 incandescent lamps of the Edison type at a distance of 26 miles from his Colorado Springs transmitter. However, Tesla claims in [3] that effects of this transmitter could be noted at a distance of 600 miles, more than enough to confirm an efficient long-distance radio-transmission. ...

In this paper, we present a transmission line representation of various Teslapsilas oscillating transmitters and of propagation based on ldquotrue conductionrdquo, a Teslapsilas concept of non-Hertzian wireless transmission. We follow bits of Teslapsilas papers, mainly ldquoThe True Wirelessrdquo, from which is obvious that his theory is in essence compatible to the transmission line theory, and compare results obtained by the model and those given by Tesla, as well as predict some theoretical characteristics of his resonating coils. Although his conception of a more efficient radio transmission by ldquonon-Hertzian wavesrdquo has never been recognized exactly what he claimed it to be, his concept of radio apparatus prevailed as they were the first patented true radio systems.
... And today almost all publications about TESLA's work are looking at his high frequency and high voltage transformers, known under the summary term " Tesla-Coil " . From time to time some papers has been published about this specific topic; for example for a repetition of some experiments [3],[7],[16] , about applications of this transformers [1],[9],[17] , about the measurement on such devices [49] or about some theoretical considerations [2],[4] . ...

After his inventions about the polyphase powering systems Nikola Tesla has focused himself more to experiments with high voltages, high currents and high frequencies. One of his goals was to transmit electrical energy without a power network directly from a central plant to the different consumers. In New York, Tesla has done his first trials for this new technology. Then at the change of the century 1899-1900 Tesla moved to the high lands of Colorado Springs. There he has executed so many experiments, which has not been repeated in all its details and specialties until these days. Now, exactly one hundred years after a review about this impressive and important experiments may be of a particularly interest.

Nikola Tesla hat sich nach den Erfindungen zum Wechselstromsystem mehr und mehr Experimenten mit hohen Strömen, Spannungen und Frequenzen zugewendet. Eine seiner Absichten war es, elektrische Energie ohne Hochspannungsleitungen von einer zentralen Erzeugungsanlage direkt zu den einzelnen Verbrauchern zu übertragen. Die ersten Anläufe zu solchen Techniken tätigte Tesla in seinem Labor in New York, bis er zur Jahrhundertwende 1899-1900 in der Hochebene von Colorado Springs Experimente durchführet, die in dieser Vielfalt und Eigenart bis heute nur punktuell nachvollzogen worden sind. Genau ein Jahrhundert nach diesen Experimenten ist eine Replik darüber sicher von besonderem Interesse.
