Has it worked?

I hear they just give those places out to anyone


I just show them my Tesla Death Ray and they throw in complimentary room service too.


I’ve onky got the miniature one. It’s good for bugs and small dogs. Sometimes it works on babies if I really want it hard enough.

Westinghouse was giving him a stipend for creating the AC motor.


Tesla didn't create the AC Motor.

As i have shown previously on this thread.


All you showed was a yuge wall of copy and pasted text about it. There are literally thousands of other walls of text online that act academic in saying Tesla did invent the first AC motor. So who is an actual authority?

So is history.com all bogus?

Serbian-American engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power. He invented the first alternating current (AC) motor and developed AC generation and transmission technology. Nikola Tesla - Inventions - HISTORY.com www.history.com/topics/inventions/nikola-tesla

Walter Bailey invented the first induction motor and demonstrated it in 1879. It was based on François Arago formulas (look up (Arago's rotations).

What Tesla did invent was an AC commutator-free three-phase induction motor at about the same time Galileo Ferraris did.

Ironically Tesla was more concerned with his image then his inventions. Is a scientist made a claim he would claim he all ready did that. Then proceed to babble on in the herold on how he thought it worked. But e entually the press catches on to the scam.

I’ve never tasted pigeon, so I’ll have to take your word for it.

Not completely. Their Ancient Aliens stuff is spot on.

But I guess they never heard of Michael von Dolivo-Dobrowolsky

Actually, Tesla did a two-phase, it was Dobrovolsky who produced a viable three phase AC motor which enabled him to capitalize on Tesla's failure with the two phase where they had trouble powering street cars as conceptualized. Dobrovolsky's motor was more powerful and much more efficient.

I could have sworn he did a three-phase about the same time as Ferraris did.

I must be getting something mixed up somewhere.

Tesla and Ferraris both did two phase, Dobrovolsky introduced the three phase and trumped them both.

haha --well it's appearing there are a multitude of conflicting data when discussing Tesla. Maybe later we will have to vote on it, or draw straws. I don't have an issue with who invented what first, but it is getting humorous.


btw thanks for that info terrydon79.

There is, indeed, a lot of myth attached to the man.


I hear George Washington threw a silver dollar across the Potomac.

I did a search (just for my sanity) and I can’t really find much outside of wiki (they say both invented AC commutator-free three-phase induction motors). Everything else I find just says polyphase.

I’m probably just mixing them up because of Dolivo-Dobrovolsky.

No problem. It appears I was slightly wrong though (two-phase, not three-phase).

We’re all (mostly) human though

The successful units were both done at nearly the same time:


Today, the three-phase synchronous motor is used mostly in highly dynamic applications (for example in robots) and in electric cars. It was developed first by Friedrich August Haselwander in 1887.

The highly successful three-phase cage induction motor was built first by Michael Dolivo-Dobrowolsky in 1889. Today, this is the most frequently produced machine in the power range of 1 kW and above. I love pigeons

I’ll just call it “close enough”


But thanks for the timeline. It’s really interesting and I completely forgot about Jonas Wenström too.

It's fine. Tesla's unit was not practical as he was trying to develop it for streetcars and it was not powerful enough to by commercially viable.

I still find it funny you call trams “streetcars”. It’s almost like there should be wallcars, pathcars and ceilingcars lol.
