Testing Solid State Tesla Coil 1, circa 2012
Hello and Welcome!
Welcome to Loneoceans (pronounced lone-oceans)
Loneoceans Laboratories is based in Singapore and originally started as a small personal website
back in 2003 documenting various mechanical and electrical science experiments.
These projects ranged from small mechanical curiosities like medieval
siege weapon models to simple computer modifications, and soon progressed to
more complex electronics, chemistry and high voltage experiments.
Since then, Loneoceans Laboratories has grown to become a defining
resource for hobbyists and experimenters alike, who share a passion
for Tesla Coils, Power Electronics, High Voltage and many other areas of
DIY home experiments and projects.
Loneoceans Laboratories specializes in Tesla Coils and power electronics of
such as conventional spark gap coils to musical transistor coils. These
have applications in various spaces such as science museums or as a
scientific installations. Till date, Loneoceans Labs has produced some
of the largest Tesla Coils in the region, including the first publicly
viewable musical Tesla Coil in the Singapore Science Centre. For those interested in any
demonstrations or custom Tesla Coils or other power electronics products
and special effects, please contact Loneoceans Laboratories.
Except otherwise mentioned, all photographs, diagrams,
schematics, write-ups and videos reflect the design and engineering
of Loneoceans Laboratories. If you would like to use any
information or media, please contact us.

About the Author
Greetings! My name is Guangyan and I am from Singapore.
I am currently pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It's a path I'm
still continually exploring and discovering. I wish to thank my Alma
Maters Raffles Junior College, Raffles Institution, Nan Hua Primary
and Radin Mas Primary for the amazing opportunities they have given me,
the fantastic education, and the great memories.
I created this webpage to document comprehensively many of
the projects I've done over several years, and I hope this will serve as a
useful resource and inspiration for other like-minded experimenters. Thank
you for visiting and do not hesitate to contact me for any suggestions,
comments, or even simply to share a project that was inspired by
Guangyan with a powerful 'Model 82' Twin Musical Tesla
Coil system, designed and constructed as part of a custom installation.
demonstrates the first 'directed lightning' QCW-type
Tesla Coil in Singapore producing long straight electrical sparks.
Musical Tesla Coil - the most powerful Tesla Coil in the region, now in
the Singapore Science Centre.
In-house developed and reflowed
custom boards for high power inverter drives and Tesla Coil controllers.
demonstrates wireless power transmission by lighting up fluorescent bulbs
in the vicinity.

Tesla Coil platform.
Indoor Lightning - just
another day at Loneoceans Laboratories. :-)
