Nikola Tesla (1856 -1943) was a Serbian American physicist, inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the
modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Tesla gained experience in telephony and electrical engineering before emigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York City.
He soon struck out onhis own with financial backers, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices.
His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by
George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant.
His work in the formative years of electric power development was involved in a corporate alternating
current/direct current "War of Currents" as well as various patent battles.
