Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in what is now Croatia. In 1875, Tesla studied electrical engineering at the Austrian Polytechnic in Graz. On June 6, 1884 Tesla cam to the United States and was hired to work in the laboratory of Thomas Edison, New Jersey. After a fight with Edison over direct current or alternating as energy source, Tesla left the company. In 1886 he founded his own company, Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing. In 1887, Tesla filed seven US patents in the field of polyphase AC motors and power transmission. George Westinghouse course, Tesla's patents, and was interested in using Tesla's inventions for long-distance electricity transmission. Westinghouse paid Tesla a sum of money to buy the patents, and aussi agreed to pay a royalty of $ 2.50 per kW of electric power sold.
With the purchase of the Westinghouse patents, rash scale war between Westinghouse and Thomas Edison. murderer William Kemmler was executed August 6, 1890 using electricity from Westinghouse generator. Death by electrocution after sarcastically called "Westinghousing."
Despite this setback, the Westinghouse Corporation won the bid for illuminating Chicago World's Fair, the first all-electric fair in history. The contract was awarded Westinghouse partner after the company was ble to bid substantially below the newly formed General Electric Company. General Electric took over Edison.
Always using DC General Electric This offer was double the offer by Westinghouse. Tesla AC system won his first major battle. Tesla and Westinghouse his next triumph in 1893. Westinghouse won the project construction contract between Niagara Power.
The project will provide electricity from Niagara Falls to Buffalo, NY
On November 16, 1896 was released the switch and the first electricity Achieved midnight Buffalo. Niagara Falls Gazette reported that "running a high power switch in Niagara completed a tour Who caused the Niagara River to flow upward."
Comments It was when Tesla tore the previous contract with Westinghouse had. This released Westinghouse agreed to pay royalties on electricity produced Tesla. The act of Tesla literally saved alone, Westinghouse. It cost aussi Tesla immense fortune he would have received royalties.
After the Niagara Falls Power Project was completed, Tesla resumed his experiments and tests. In 1891, he invented the famous Tesla coil. Also could generate extremely high voltages. The Tesla coil is still used today on TV, radio and several electronic devices --other.
objective obsession of the life of Tesla was without power transmission wire. Goal after completely called the Tesla laboratory was destroyed by fire.
Later Marconi set up long-distance demonstrations, using a Tesla oscillator to signals transmitted across the English Channel.
December 12, 1901, for the first time Marconi was reliably transmitted and received signals across the Atlantic Ocean. Otis Pond, an engineer who worked for Tesla said. "It seems that Marconi got the jump on you" Tesla replied, "Marconi is a good guy Let It uses _him_ still seventeen of my patents ... "
Tesla has succeeded in a number of scientific discoveries. US patent number 613.809 Tesla describes the first device anywhere in the world for wireless remote control. boat with remote control Tesla was literally the birth of robotics, even if it is rarely recognized for this achievement. Tesla had last clapboard 1890s in Colorado Springs. The draft article on the global communications system wireless Tesla. The document is at the center of JP Morgan, the investor that Tesla had already prevented from acquiring Westinghouse Company.
Tesla Morgan proposed to their belief in a system of broadcast news, music, stock market reports, messages, top secret military communications and peer pictures worldwide.
Morgan offered Tesla $ 150,000 to build a transmission tower and mill. real intentions of Tesla, however, was to make a large-scale demonstration of wireless power. It would later be a big mistake by Tesla.
Tesla acquired land on the cliffs of Long Island Sound for the new project. The site was called Wardenclyffe expired. The $ 150,000 Tesla received Morgan did not last long. Tesla called for more funds, Morgan refused goal.
free electricity meant no profits, then Morgan repeatedly denied Tesla more money to complete the project.
In 1905, Tesla was forced to abandon the project. He was soon labeled as "madness million in Tesla."
In 1912, Tesla tested a revolutionary new kind of turbine engine. The Tesla project is a series of spaced discs étroitement What would have been seized from a tree. This project was abandoned.
Unfortunately Tesla He did not have the funds to build a prototype.
In 1931, Tesla invented what is now called expired a charged particle beam weapons. Tesla hopes will have the weapon could year end the war. Newspapers at the time the invention was called "death ray." Some feared that Tesla's papers might fall into the hands of the Axis powers or the Soviets.
The next morning, after Tesla's death his nephew Sava Kosanovic I went to the hotel room son. ACCORDING Foxworth, the government was "vital interest" in the preservation of records of Tesla. Dr. John G. Trump, an electrical engineer with the National Defense Research Committee of the Institute for Research and Scientific Development, was called Expired analyze the documents in Tesla primary custody. Nikola Tesla was a man with a remarkable scientific spirit.
