Do you know where and when the worlds first AC Power Station was built? And do you know who designed it?

I will give you a clue. It wasn't in The U.S. and it wasn't Tesla.

You'll have to excuse me I've been up for more than 24hrs and my brain is pretty much mush right now.
His polyphase generation and transmission of AC was far more efficient and is the basis for modern electrical systems.

Polyphase Generation was invented by Galileo Ferraris

The answer to my question by the way. The worlds first AC Power Station was built in Deptford London 1n 1887.

en.wikipedia.org...

Designed by Sebastian Ziani De Ferranti

Too many people believe the myth that is Tesla. Others lead, he followed.

You'll have to excuse my being a victim of the US's education system.
:

Edit to add: according to your own link on Ferraris show that Tesla submitted his patent www.google.com... in October 1887, where as Ferraris' research paper was submitted March of 1888. I think it might be another example of independent co invention.

In 1937 Nikola was hit on the road on his way to feed his pigeons, he couldn't get up for year from his bed.
He then spent the next 5 years until his death feeding his pigeons from his hotel room with only short walks. He died at 83 in 1943, Tesla was not in contact with anyone other than his own mind and his pigeon wife.
Makes you wonder, why was he on a govt. stipend , just as Einstein was

Why, indeed! It gives one to wonder.

eta: Heck, if he hadn't been afflicted with dementia and mental illness in his later years, other things might have gone more smoothly than they did. We will never know.

They gave EDISON the credit of inventing electricity


Considering Michael Faraday invented the electric motor in 1821, how did Faraday use Edison's invention of electricity to power it ?

Edison was born in 1847 Oh and Tesla was born in 1856.



Nobody invented electricity, it was only discovered.

But closer to home nikola tesla was on a govt. stipend.


there's a large number of americans, and not, on a government stipend, it's a called social security check.

tesla was owed millions by westinghouse and he settled that debt for something like a dollar. that is why he was on social security.

as it turns out you will eventually be on one also

Excuse me i should had been more specific. "invented the USAGE OF IT" and Galilio didnt PATENT it so theres no verification he Did i tfirst.

Still wonder, if these were inflicted on him by whatever means, for he stepped on many toes and not to mention his denial of einsteins GR.

He was always nuts. The dementia part might have been inherited or might have come from his zapping his head with x-rays on purpose to 'speed his thoughts' in his earlier years.

He wasn't alone. Either in the denial or in the error in doing so.

A very, very good engineer. But he got a lot of things just plain wrong when it came to theory.

I don't really blame tesla, for any engineer in this world worth his salt will safely say that Einstein's GR is all unadulterared bunk

That's why I really like hiring astrophysicists. I've got a resume I'm looking over for my manager.

Any 'engineer' that says that is an unmitigated moron as your cell phone's GPS proves him right every single time you use it.
