Alternating Current
The Tesla Coil
Created in 1891 Tesla coil for producing high voltage and low current with frequency AC electricity.

It was used for
1. Electrical lighting,
2. Phosphorescence,
3. X-ray generation,
4. High frequency alternating current
5. Electrotherapy,
6. Transmission of electrical energy without wires.

His early life
-He was born in july 10 1856 in Smiljan, Lika, which is now where Croatia is.

-He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881.

Nikola Tesla's Inventions and Achievements
The Induction Motor
Remote Control
His Life after Career
Hydro Electricity
Where we would be without Nikola Tesla's Inventions
Without alternating current we wouldn't be able to transport electricity longer than two miles without huge coal burning power station.
As well as seeing 500% more wires natural resources would dwindle down faster than today it would almost be impossible to get eletricity to remote places without his contributions to radio there would be no radio
Electricity itself would be much more expensive.
-Nikola Tesla first demonstrated tele automation in Madison Square Gardens in 1898.
-This was the first ever use of remote control He was hoping his technology would ultimately be used for warfare such as torpedos.
His Contributions
