Nikola Tesla: The Genius Who Lit the World
Nikola Tesla: The Genius Who Lit the World is the documentary film about Nikola Tesla. He was one of the greatest scientist and inventor. Born to Milutin Tesla, a Serbian orthodox priest and Djuka Mandic, an inventor in her own right of household appliances.
Tesla studied at the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague and began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881.
Before going to America, Tesla joined Continental Edison Company in Paris where he designed dynamos. While in Strassbourg in 1883, he made a prototype of the induction motor which ran successfully. Unable to interest anyone in Europe in promoting his motor Tesla decided to accept the offer made by Thomas Edison.
Nikola Tesla moved to United States in 1884 and spent 59 years of his productive life in new York. He worked on dynamos while working in Edison’s lab and it was here that his divergence of opinion with Edison began. This disagreement climaxed in the Battle of Currents as Edison fought a losing battle to protect his investment in direct current equipment and facilities.
Tesla developed polyphase alternating current system of generators, motors and transformers. He was holding 40 basic U.S. patents on the system, which were bought by George Westinghouse. George Westinghouse was determined to supply America with Tesla system.
Tesla discovered rotating magnetic field, which forms the basis of nearly all devices tht work on AC
Tesla’s A-C induction motor is widely used worlwide in industry and household appliances. This motor started the industrial revolution at he turn of the century. Electricity that we generated today is donr through using Tesla’s inventions.
The genius’s greatest achievement was polyphase alternating current system. It is this system which lights the entire world today.
