Nikola Tesla

An outstanding engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla, a Serb by nationality, was born in a mountain village on the land of the former Yugoslavia. He studied at the Higher Technical School in Graz and at the University of Prague. He began working as a telegraph operator in Budapest, and the first improvements made by him concern telegraph apparatus. From Budapest in search of money, he went to Paris, from there with a letter of recommendation to the great American inventor T.A. Edison to New York. However, Edison failed to correctly assess his work with alternating current. Nikola Tesla organizes his laboratory in the eighties of the 19th century, creating the first generator of a two-phase alternating current - an outstanding discovery that formed the basis of modern electrical engineering.

Nikola Tesla had an important quality, necessary for the invention - a great power of imagination. Most often without drawings and models, he gave the masters the dimensions of the parts, and they were exceptionally accurate. The range of creativity of Nikola Tesla was very wide: he dreamed of wireless transmission energy for a distance and first began working with high and ultrahigh-frequency currents, invented a high-frequency transformer, made about 20 inventions in the field of telegraphy, came close to unraveling the mystery of X-rays (x-rays) and realized the danger of irradiation with these rays for human health . Many of his ideas, ahead of time, were hardly perceived. For example, Nikola Tesla built a model of the ship and showed how you can manage it from a distance. Even after this public experiment, he had to persuade the expert council for a long time to give patent on this invention.

In 1917 Nikola Tesla argued that it is possible to determine the location of a ship or submarine with the help of electromagnetic waves. No one took his idea seriously then. Only 15 years later, the first radars began to be created in England. Nikola Tesla is known as a supporter of the existence of the ether: his numerous experiments and experiments have been known to show the presence of ether as a special form of matter that can be used in engineering. During his long life Nikola Tesla made about 1000 inventions and discoveries, received almost 800 patents. In Belgrade, a museum of Nikola Tesla was created, in which his things are collected, an archive that has not yet been studied to the end. The name of Tesla is the unit of magnetic induction.

Contemporary biographers considered Nicolas Tesla "a man who invented the 20th century". Nikola Tesla received widespread recognition as an outstanding electrical engineer and inventor.
