In this paper, the effect of mutual inductance (M) and its optimization on the output pulse rise time in Tesla coils is investigated. A numerical method is proposed to calculate the mutual inductance in a Tesla coil. The method is verified by performing some experiments. Eventually, the conditions for maximum voltage gain for ordinary Tesla coil and autotransformer connected one are surveyed.
