List of Nikola Tesla patents

List of Nikola Tesla patents
Nikola Tesla was an inventor who obtained around 300 patents[1] worldwide for his inventions. Some of Tesla's patents are not accounted for, and various sources have discovered some that have lain hidden in patent archives. There are a minimum of 278 patents[1] issued to Tesla in 26 countries that have been accounted for. Many of Tesla's patents were in the United States, Britain, and Canada, but many other patents were approved in countries around the globe.[2] Many inventions developed by Tesla were not put into patent protection.

Nikola Tesla From the time he was a child, Tesla was always considered eccentric. During his early life, Tesla was stricken with illness time and time again. He suffered a peculiar affliction in which blinding flashes of light would appear before his eyes, often accompanied by hallucinations. The flashes and images caused Tesla great discomfort, and by the time he reached his teens he had taught himself to repress them from occurring except in certain times of stress. Tesla coil A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891.[1] It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8] Tesla coils can produce higher voltages than electrostatic machines,[citation needed] which are another source of artificial high-voltage discharges. Tesla experimented with a number of different configurations consisting of two, or sometimes three, coupled resonant electric circuits. Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, phosphorescence, X-ray generation, high frequency alternating current phenomena, electrotherapy, and the transmission of electrical energy without wires. Tesla coil circuits were used commercially in sparkgap radio transmitters for wireless telegraphy until the 1920s,[1][9][10] and in medical equipment such as electrotherapy and violet ray devices.

Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in Smiljan Lika, Croatia. He was the son of a Serbian Orthodox clergyman. Tesla studied engineering at the Austrian Polytechnic School. He worked as an electrical engineer in Budapest and later emigrated to the United States in 1884 to work at the Edison Machine Works. He died in New York City on January 7, 1943. Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian American[2][3][4][5] inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.[6] Tesla gained experience in telephony and electrical engineering before immigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York City. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric power development was also involved in the corporate struggle between making alternating current or direct current the power transmission standard, referred to as the War of Currents.

"The Problem of Increasing Human Energy" by Nikola Tesla DIAGRAM a. THE THREE WAYS OF INCREASING HUMAN ENERGY. Let, then, in diagram a, M represent the mass of man. Tesla turbine Tesla turbine The Tesla turbine is a bladeless centripetal flow turbine patented by Nikola Tesla in 1913. It is referred to as a bladeless turbine because it uses the boundary layer effect and not a fluid impinging upon the blades as in a conventional turbine.

Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla | Bob Neal | Ron Rockwell | Charles Brown T. Henry Moray | Edwin Gray | Paul Baumann | John Bedini Nikola Tesla was a multi-disciplinary genius. His discovery of the rotating magnetic field in 1882 lead to a series of US Patents in 1888, which gave us the AC electric power system still in use today. Nikola Tesla The Theory Of Free Electrical Power No cost electrical ability devoid of connecting to the grid. Electrical power carried as a result of the air to lgt up our houses and ability our vehicles. Plenty of power to mild up an in any other case spent fluorescent bulb. If this all appears to be just like the thirty-very first century, it is not. There could possibly be know-how obtainable today which will offer free of charge electrical power to absolutely everyone. When electrical power was initially found there were proponents of equally the direct existing transmission plus the alternating present-day transmission of energy.

Plasma globe A plasma globe with filaments extending from the inner sphere to the outer. Description[edit] The effect of a conducting object (such as a hand) in close proximity with the plasma globe glass Nikola Tesla: inventor, engineer, scientist The Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, and scientist Born on July 9/10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika (Austria-Hungary) Died on January 7, 1943 in New York City, New York (USA) Inventions: a telephone repeater, rotating magnetic field principle, polyphase alternating-current system, induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, Tesla coil transformer, wireless communication, radio, fluorescent lights, and more than 700 other patents. Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night: God said, "Let Tesla be", and all was light. B.A. Behrend, AIEE annual meeting, New York City, May 18, 1917.

Prominent German Production House Presents TESLA To The American Film Market As part of a rich and varied seven-film slate of films to be pitched at this week’s American Film Market, acclaimed international production house ena Film will bring two new projects to be directed by Pittsburgh-based Michael Anton. The German production heavyweights will host finance talks, explore pre-sales deals and announce cast and production details for the highly anticipated biopic TESLA and sci-fi thriller Apocalypse Radio. Both films are the brainchild of American director and scriptwriter Michael Anton. Germany’s ena Film is best known as a leading production company on acclaimed international movies such as Dust with Joseph Fiennes, British sumo comedy Secret Society, and Til Schweiger’s Der Eisbär (Polar Bear). ena Film head Vesna Jovanoska will take on a producer role for both projects. TESLA will tell the true story of the eminent scientist Nikola Tesla, who has seen a recent surge in global popularity.
