Item description for Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency by Nikola Tesla...

A lecture delivered before the Institution of Electrical Engineers, February 1892, in London. Complete with illustrations.

From the introduction:

A short time ago I had the honor to bring before our American Institute of Electrical Engineers some results then arrived at by me in a novel line of work. I need not assure you that the many evidences which I have received that English scientific men and engineers were interested in this work have been for me a great reward and encouragement. I will not dwell upon the experiments already described, except with the view of completing, or more clearly expressing, some ideas advanced by me before, and also with the view of rendering the study here presented self-contained, and my remarks on the subject of this evening's lecture consistent.

This investigation, then, it goes without saying, deals with alternating currents, and, to be more precise, with alternating currents of high potential and high frequency. Just in how much a very high frequency is essential for the production of the results presented is a question which, even with my present experience, would embarrass me to answer. Some of the experiments may be performed with low frequencies; but very high frequencies are desirable, not only on account of the many effects secured by their use, but also as a convenient means of obtaining, in the induction apparatus employed, the high potentials, which in their turn are necessary to the demonstration of most of the experiments here contemplated.

More About Nikola Tesla

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) emigrated to the United States from his native Croatia in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He contributed to the development of the alternating-current electrical system, which made the universal transmission and distribution of electricity possible. George Westinghouse purchased the patents to Tesla's induction motor and made it the basis of the Westinghouse power system, which underlies the modern electrical power industry.

Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 and died in 1943.

Reviews - What do customers think about Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency?

Tesla reprinted  Sep 4, 2007
This book is simply a collection of Tesla's lectures. It is extremely long. I'm sure things would be different if Tesla was still here to give these lectures in person. It is not a fast read.

It does allow elaboration of some of Tesla's ideas, but I felt it was an injustice that this edition didn't attempt to clarify some of Tesla's ideas to make them more easily understandable.

Too many publishers are simply reprinting his notes without really contributing to a better understanding of his ideas and principles. This edition contributes nothing to a better understanding of then man outside of his own words.
Tesla experiments described in Tesla's own words  Aug 3, 2003
Here is an AUTHENTIC source of Tesla's work. It is a reprint of the original edition. "Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency" which is a lecture Tesla presented at the Institution Of Electrical Engineers, London. Included with this lecture is an appendix on the "Transmission of Electric Energy Without Wires" by Nikola Tesla. If you want to understand how Tesla thought & worked; this book will allow you to gain real insight into his mind. The future he envisioned can largely be seen in our everyday lives. But this was over a hundred years ago!

Nikola Tesla is a craftsman with an intimate relationship of his work and materials. He innately grasps the nature of electricity. Dubbed the "Electric Magician" by the public, he amazed even engineers & scientists of his day. Henry Ford & Thomas Edison did their best to see that Tesla was forgotten. Neither the Ford Foundation nor the Smithsonian can silence history. Ford & Edison were great entrepreneurs. Tesla was a true genius and humanitarian! This book stands as a testament to his brilliance.
