Tesla was one of the great pioneers of the AC, which is used to supply electricity
to homes by private electric companies. The great advantage of AC over DC is that
it can be used to move the current over long distances, thus concentrating the
production of electricity at power plants key.
Tesla invented the alternating current generator that creating an electric current
or magnetic without direct contact.

laboratory with his “Magnifying transmitter” generating millions of volts and
producing 7 meter (23 ft) long arcs.
Tesla asked vision wirelessly transmit power from one central power to provide
electricity to the entire world. For that he invented the “Tesla coil”, which is a
transformer that allows to change the stretch and frequency of electricity. Helix
enabled in theoretical and practical power transmission over long distances
through the air. In 1899 he demonstrated electrical transmission to a distance of
28 miles and raised funds to continue the project. Tesla began building huge
Tesla coil but stopshis funding as stoped and his research on wireless power
transmission ended .
Among other inventions include the electric motor driven alternating current, a
boat is controlled by radio waves, a machine that produces artificially
earthquakes, electric car, electric lights without filament and innovations in radar
In his later years trying to develop a “death ray” that will be able to blow up a
plane in the air,but this invention was never realized.
his specialization in science that is not routine, such as lightning production,
electricity transmission and production wirelessly earthquakes gave him various
urban legends, like the invention of a time machine. After his death, usa federal
agents raided his home and confiscated documents and equipment, resulting in
increasing rumors about various inventions Tesla worked on.
