Wimshurst machine is a voltage generator developed by James Wimshurst from 1880 to 1883 whose operation is based, briefly, on the accumulation of charge in capacitors, previously created by the electrostatic induction of several metal plates between them. It is characterized by an exponential growth with voltage time, making possible the generation of voltage of the order of kilovolts in a few seconds.
