Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and inventor. He is famous for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Tesla was born and raised in the Austrian Empire. He studied engineering and physics in the 1870s but didn’t receive a degree. In 1884, he migrated to the United States of America and became a naturalized citizen. For a short while, he worked at the Edison Machine Works in New York City. Then Tesla found some partners willing to fund and market his ideas. He went on to set up laboratories and companies in New York to develop a range of electrical and mechanical devices. His patent of alternating current induction motor and related polyphase AC, licensed by Westinghouse Electric in 1888, earned him money and fame.
Tesla wrote many books and articles for magazines and journals. His publication credit includes ‘The Tesla Papers‘, ‘My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla‘, compiled and edited by Ben Johnston; and ‘The Fantastic Inventions of Nikola Tesla‘, compiled and edited by David Hatcher Childress.
