It is well known that a true great man always has an open mind, open eyes and is ears to others. Dr. Nikola Tesla too had a very distinctive quality of always seeing all the things without any fixed assumptions in his mind. For Dr. Tesla, a phenomenon or even a discovery of his own had multiple aspects and viewpoints. This always led him towards a spectrum of uses
During further modification of experiment, Copper sphere was attached to the secondary transformer terminals. This concentrated all the discharges in the copper ball, now this copper ball started emitting the discharges with huge crackling sounds. This also reduced the required input electrical levels and made the broadcast of wireless electricity much more accurate and safe. This gave birth to what we know popularly as “TESLA COIL”. With the help of Tesla Coil Dr. Nikola Tesla succeeded in making wireless electrical energy safe for the use by common man. Wireless electricity could be received at a long distance using specially tuned circuits. Dr. Tesla gave birth to the concept of electricity without wires.
This was the practical model of transferring wireless energy to the nearby regions. The model was none other than Tesla Coil. Today in many animated movies and games, Tesla Coil discharges are being shown as harmful, that is one that can burn down anything on which the current falls. But as per Dr. Tesla’s illustration, the reality is totally opposite. Dr. Nikola Tesla proved by his method that Tesla Coil is a perfect wireless energy transmitter device.
Every human born on planet earth is blessed with talent and individuality. It is something that no one can take away from him. Wealth, fame and all material things can be robbed, cheated and taken away but this individuality of his is God’s real gift to him. The desire to succeed in whatever field a person chooses is only met if he feels its need equal to the need of
Life presents everyone with many ups and downs. Failure in our work, loss of a loved one or even a mere financial loss is sufficient to push the most optimistic individual into depression. Then just imagine how difficult it would be when one has to witness destruction of his dreams, his achievements and everything that he has worked for in his life. It indeed must be utterly devastating. Faced with
The story of Dr. Nikola Tesla is one of faith, hope and belief. It is a story of what one individual can achieve and how a single person utterly dedicated to his cause and with unwavering faith in God can move mountains and change the world with his efforts. When we last saw Dr. Tesla at the World Columbian Exposition, the efficacy of the AC transmission system had been proved
1st of May 1893 marked the commencement of the World Columbian Exposition in a grand style and in full swing. There were almost hundred thousand (one lakh) people witnessing this great fair on the very first day. The spectators enjoyed the Exposition throughout the day visiting various places, buildings and special exhibits, and as the night fell, they were amazed as if a casting spell fell at the venue. Those
Dr. Nikola Tesla returned to New York after his Europe tour. With fond memories and the grief of loss of his mother Dr. Tesla again began his experimental work in his laboratory. But soon he overcame and conquered this sorrow. It was the same year of 1892 when Dr. Nikola Tesla actually received two of the most prestigious honours. Before his return to New York, Dr. Nikola Tesla was invited
In the last article we have seen how Dr. Nikola Tesla developed his famous Tesla Coil and took great pains in improving his research to make it beneficial for mankind. Dr. Nikola Tesla believed that it was ‘Impulses‘ which achieved the transfer of electricity into the air. He also observed that, electrical energy was projected from the coil in form ‘Rays’ and not in form of waves due to these
In previous article we have seen how Dr. Nikola Tesla discovered the principle of impulses, and applied it to high frequency Alternating Current and observed that the current started traveling through the air. This was just the first step towards wireless electricity. In this series of articles we will witness the application of wireless electricity and are going to see how this principle has shaped few of the further innovations
To witness the ‘War of Currents’ was indeed a most shocking experience for all of us. It brought forth the true nature of Thomas Alva Edison who has been idolised across the world for his scientific discoveries and genius. Edison opposed Dr. Nikola Tesla tooth and nail and yet lost to him without Dr. Tesla doing anything either actively or passively to counter him. Dr. Tesla’s nature and his faith
Last week we have seen how Thomas Edison became extremely upset after seeing his business empire under threat if ideas of Nikola Tesla ever came into existence. With this, though Edison dismissed Tesla’s idea of Alternating Current and ridiculed him yet, Edison at the back of his mind became sure that Nikola Tesla is a genius who could rather help his business empire grow, if employed. Though Edison did not
