Improved Edwin Gray Circuitry
Simplified Edwin Gray Patent Circuit
The circuit drawn by Bruce A. Perreault at the left is without the distractions that are shown in the original Edwin Gray patent drawing shown below. This simplification gives a clear impression of how the circuit actually works. The the wire path represented by the red lines discharge the capacitor heating the central cathode rod. This has the effect of adding pulsed amperage to the tank circuit. Most of the discharge current is conserved by sending it through the source battery. The wire path represemted by the blue lines is the working load circuit. More advanced circuits will be posted.
