Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) ebooks video pack Nikola Tesla symbolizes a unifying force and inspiration for all nations in the name of peace and science. He was a true visionary far ahead of his contemporaries in the field of scientific development. New York State and many other states in the USA proclaimed July 10, Tesla’s birthday - Nikola Tesla Day. Many United States Congressmen gave speeches in the House of Representatives on July 10, 1990 celebrating the 134th anniversary of scientist-inventor Nikola Tesla. Senator Levine from Michigan spoke in the US Senate on the same occasion. The street sign “Nikola Tesla Corner” was recently placed on the corner of the 40th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan. There is a large photo of Tesla in the Statue of Liberty Museum. The Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey has a daily science demonstration of the Tesla Coil creating a million volts of electricity before the spectators eyes. Many books were written about Tesla : Prodigal Genius: The Life of Nikola Tesla by John J. O’Neill and Margaret Cheney’s book Tesla: Man out of Time has contributed significantly to his fame. A documentary film Nikola Tesla, The Genius Who Lit the World, produced by the Tesla Memorial Society and the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, The Secret of Nikola Tesla (Orson Welles), BBC Film Masters of the Ionosphere are other tributes to the great genius. Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika, which was then part of the Austo-Hungarian Empire, region of Croatia. His father, Milutin Tesla was a Serbian Orthodox Priest and his mother Djuka Mandic was an inventor in her own right of household appliances. Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. At first, he intended to specialize in physics and mathematics, but soon he became fascinated with electricity. He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881. It was there, as Tesla was walking with a friend through the city park that the elusive solution to the rotating magnetic field flashed through his mind. With a stick, he drew a diagram in the sand explaining to his friend the principle of the induction motor. Before going to America, Tesla joined Continental Edison Company in Paris where he designed dynamos. While in Strassbourg in 1883, he privately built a prototype of the induction motor and ran it successfully. Unable to interest anyone in Europe in promoting this radical device, Tesla accepted an offer to work for Thomas Edison in New York. His childhood dream was to come to America to harness the power of Niagara Falls. Young Nikola Tesla came to the United States in 1884 with an introduction letter from Charles Batchelor to Thomas Edison: “I know two great men,” wrote Batchelor, “one is you and the other is this young man.” Tesla spent the next 59 years of his productive life living in New York. Tesla set about improving Edison’s line of dynamos while working in Edison’s lab in New Jersey. It was here that his divergence of opinion with Edison over direct current versus alternating current began. This disagreement climaxed in the war of the currents as Edison fought a losing battle to protect his investment in direct current equipment and facilities. Tesla pointed out the inefficiency of Edison’s direct current electrical powerhouses that have been build up and down the Atlantic seaboard. The secret, he felt, lay in the use of alternating current ,because to him all energies were cyclic. Why not build generators that would send electrical energy along distribution lines first one way, than another, in multiple waves using the polyphase principle? Edison’s lamps were weak and inefficient when supplied by direct current. This system had a severe disadvantage in that it could not be transported more than two miles due to its inability to step up to high voltage levels necessary for long distance transmission. Consequently, a direct current power station was required at two mile intervals. Direct current flows continuously in one direction; alternating current changes direction 50 or 60 times per second and can be stepped up to vary high voltage levels, minimizing power loss across great distances. The future belongs to alternating current. Nikola Tesla developed polyphase alternating current system of generators, motors and transformers and held 40 basic U.S. patents on the system, which George Westinghouse bought, determined to supply America with the Tesla system. Edison did not want to lose his DC empire, and a bitter war ensued. This was the war of the currents between AC and DC. Tesla-Westinghouse ultimately emerged the victor because AC was a superior technology. It was a war won for the progress of both America and the world. videos ABOVE TOP SECRET UFOs, Nikola Tesla, and Antigravity Technology.mp4 Antigravity and Advanced Tesla Science.mp4 HOLES IN HEAVEN HAARP and Advances In Tesla Technology.mp4 NIKOLA TESLA - The Genius Who Lit the World.mp4 The Secret of Nikola Tesla (1980) 480p.mp4 The Tesla Prophecy and Suppressed Science.mp4 UFOs, TESLA & SECRET ANTIGRAVITY TECH – MUFON SYMPOSIUM – Paul La Violette, PhD.mp4 English ebooks Tesla Inventor of the Electrical Age W Bernard Carlson.epub David Childress The Fantastic Inventions of Nikola Tesla.pdf FBI Files on Nikola Tesla 01.pdf FBI Files on Nikola Tesla 02 text.pdf FBI Files on Nikola Tesla 02.pdf Free Energy Nikola Tesla Secrets for Everybody Circuits and Schematics.pdf George Trinkaus - Tesla The Lost Inventions.pdf Jeffery Hayes - Tesla Engine A New Dimension for Power.pdf John O'Neill - Prodigal Genius A Biography of Nikola Tesla.pdf John Ratzlaff - Tesla Said 1984.pdf Lyne - Occult Dictatorship.pdf Margaret Cheney Tesla Man Out of Time.pdf Nikola Tesla - On Light and Other High Frequency Phenomena.pdf Nikola Tesla - Solid State Tesla Coil schematics.pdf Nikola Tesla and the Electrical Signals of Planetary Origin.pdf Nikola Tesla Colorado Springs Notes 1899-1900.pdf Nikola Tesla Electrical Genius by Arthur J Beckhard 1959.pdf Nikola Tesla Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency.pdf Scalar Waves First Tesla Physics Textbook Konstantin Meyl.pdf Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion Paul A LaViolette.pdf Tesla Complete Articles and Patents Aetherforce.pdf Tesla Flying Machine.pdf Tesla Inventor of the Electrical Age W Bernard Carlson.pdf Teslas Engine A New Dimension for Power Jeffery A Hayes.pdf The FBI Files on Nikola Tesla EFOIA 265p.pdf The Inventions Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla 503p (1894).pdf The Inventions Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla color 509p (1894).pdf The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla Haarp Chemtrails and Secret of Alternative 4 Tim R Swartz.pdf The Tesla High Frequency Coil Its Construction and Uses Haller Cunningham 1910.pdf The U.S. Patents of Nikola Tesla.pdf Thomas Bearden The New Tesla Electromagnetics and the Secrets of Electrical Free Energy.pdf Tom Valone Harnessing the Wheelwork of Nature Tesla's Science of Energy.pdf Viktor Schauberger Living Energies by Callum Coats.pdf German ebooks Neue Experimente mit EMPs Tesla- und Mikrowellen Günter Wahl.pdf Nikola Tesla 1856-1943 Eine Biographie Franz Ferzak 1993.pdf Nikola Tesla Ueber Licht und andere Erscheinungen St Louis im März 1893.pdf Nikola Tesla und sein Werk Slavko Boksan 1932.pdf Tachyonen Orgonenergie Skalarwellen Marco Bischof.pdf Tesla Energie Faszinierende Experimente mit selbstgebauten Teslaspulen Günter Wahl.pdf text files Longitudinalwellen-Experiment nach Nikola Tesla von Konstantin Meyl circuits 6p.pdf My Inventions Nikola Tesla's Autobiography 34p.pdf Nikola Tesla - Master of Imagination.pdf Nikola Tesla - Modern Physics for Engineers PHY355 Formulas.pdf Nikola Tesla - Wikipedia.pdf Nikola Tesla Electromagnetic Engineering Formulas and Mathematics.pdf Tesla Biography Tesla Memorial Society.pdf Tesla Wireless and the Tunguska Explosion.pdf The Tesla Magnifying Transmitter by JLN Labs.pdf tags: Tesla, engineer, electricity, motor, dynamo, current, radio, scalar, free energy

Selfrunning 3 KW Free Energy Tesla ERR Fluxgenerator (2015) Warning: This free energy device may or may not be a hoax. The ERR Fluxgenerator harvests unseen energy from the environment in a manner not dissimilar from solar photovoltaic panels. In 2006, inventor, James B. Schwartz, came up with a version that allegedly puts out as much as six kilowatts of electricity, tying into the Earth's frequencies, using a solid state arrangement in a panel made from "left-handed material" -- Aluminum and Bismuth interwoven with coils. He has been in process of testing, refining, and scaling up the design. "The proof of concept video that Stefan posted up is relatively new, filmed just a few months ago, but the technology and principle of operation have been a matter of research for many years now. Others ahead of us have pioneered similar technology, like Moray and Tesla, but as of yet none have perfected it to the point that others can use it. ... My research has had quite a few setbacks over the years and even now there are safety concerns associated with this type of device. Progress is being made and arrangements are in place to move toward the realization of genuine usable power production, but there are still steps ahead that must not be rushed to ensure the success of this technology." (Aug 8, 2009) Dr. Schwartz explains in the video: "We have three plates here... [with] a solid piece of aluminum on one side, [followed by] a sheet of bismuth, [followed by] another aluminum plate with six cut-outs; you've got the coils in there; then you put another bismuth, another plate of coils on top of that, then another bismuth, then another solid plate, then you've got a panel. When we activate these with our activator, which causes the frequencies in these plates with alternating frequency, they produce electrons by agitating the bismuth and aluminum. We've got to ground it to the earth. That's what we're going to do here; and find the frequency of the earth that matches. It will seek out and find." "It's designed as a 6,000 Watt system, but today we're only putting out about [~2,400] Watts. We've got three 800-Watt lights. The weight is approximately 42 pounds, and that's mostly the case. The plates and circuits boards are about 8 pounds." In a modest building on the west side of Salt Lake City, a team of specialists in advanced materials and electrochemistry has produced what could be the single most important breakthrough for clean, alternative energy since Socrates first noted solar heating 2,400 years ago. The prize is the culmination of 10 years of research and testing -- a new generation of deep-storage battery that's small enough, and safe enough, to sit in your basement and power your home. It promises to nudge the world to a paradigm shift as big as the switch from centralized mainframe computers in the 1980s to personal laptops. But this time the mainframe is America's antiquated electrical grid; and the switch is to personal power stations in millions of individual homes. Former energy secretary Bill Richardson once disparaged the U.S. electrical grid as "third world," and he was painfully close to the mark. It's an inefficient, aging relic of a century-old approach to energy and a weak link in national security in an age of false-flag terrorism. Taking a load off the grid through electricity production and storage at home would extend the life of the system and avoid the expenditure of tens, or even hundreds, of billions to make it "smart." The battery breakthrough comes from a Salt Lake company called Ceramatec, the R&D arm of CoorsTek, a world leader in advanced materials and electrochemical devices. It promises to reduce dependence on the dinosaur by hooking up with the latest generation of personalized power plants that draw from the sun. Solar energy has been around, of course, but it's been prohibitively expensive. Now the cost is tumbling, driven by new thin-film chemistry and manufacturing techniques. Leaders in the field include companies like Arizona-based First Solar, which can paint solar cells onto glass; and Konarka, an upstart that purchased a defunct Polaroid film factory in New Bedford, Mass., and now plans to print cells onto rolls of flexible plastic.

The Inventions Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla (1894) by Thomas Commerford Martin with special reference to his work in polyphase currents and high potential lighting Biography Nikola Tesla is often called one of history’s most important inventors, one whose discoveries in the field of electricity were way ahead of his time and continue to influence technology today. Despite his accomplishments, however, Tesla died penniless and without the accolades that would he would ultimately earn over a century later. The “genius who lit the world” is now commemorated with an electrical unit called the Tesla, has a place in the inventor’s hall of fame, streets, statues, and a prestigious engineer’s award in his name, but in life he wasn’t always so successful. Brilliant scientist, terrible businessman Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in a town called Smiljan, today part of Croatia but then located within the borders of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His father was a priest and his mother, despite not having any formal education, tinkered in machinery and was known for having a spectacular memory. Tesla’s career as an inventor began early; while working at the Central Telegraph Office in Budapest, at the age of just 26, he is reported to have first sketched out the principles for a rotating magnetic field — an important idea still used in many electromechanical devices. This major achievement laid the groundwork for many of his future inventions, including the alternating current motor and ultimately led him to New York City in 1884, lured by Thomas Edison and his groundbreaking engineering factory, Edison Machine Works. It is often said that as brilliant a scientist as Tesla was, he was an equally terrible businessman, unable (or possibly unwilling) to see the commercial value behind his ideas. Thomas Edison was both an inventor and a business mogul focused on the bottom line, and he often clashed with Tesla over methods and ideology. It was also unlikely, perhaps, that two minds so brilliant could coexist in peace for very long and, indeed, Tesla quit Edison Machine Works only a year later. Tesla’s creativity was given free rein at the new laboratory he established, Tesla Electric Light and Manufacturing, where he experimented with early X-ray technology, electrical resonance, arc lamps and other ideas. Moves to Colorado and then back to New York coincided with other great scientific feats, including advances in turbine science, the installation of the first hydroelectric power station at Niagara Falls and, most importantly, the perfection of his alternating current system. Through it all, the compulsive, eccentric and often sensational Tesla provided terrific sound bites for reporters, speaking frequently to the press about new, futuristic ideas up to a few years before his death, when he became a recluse. Tesla died in 1943, broke and alone in a New York City hotel room. Tesla’s legacy has experienced a resurgence of sorts in recent years, thanks to a handful of supporters who have popularized his work in the media, in the hopes of having a Nikola Tesla science museum built on the grounds of a former laboratory on Long Island, New York. Innumerable patents The exact number of patents held by Tesla is disputed, as some likely remain undiscovered, historians believe. He is thought to be responsible for at least 300 inventions (many related to each other), in addition to countless unpatented ideas that he developed over the course of his career. Alternating current Perhaps Tesla’s most famous and important idea, alternating current (AC), was an answer to his old boss Edison’s inefficient — as Tesla put it — use of direct current (DC) in the new electric age. While DC power stations sent electricity flowing in one direction in a straight line, alternating currents change direction quickly, and could do so at a much higher voltage. Indeed, Edison’s power lines that crisscrossed the Atlantic seaboard were short and weak due to DC, while AC was able to send electricity much farther afield. Though Thomas Edison had more resources and an established reputation, Tesla’s AC power grids eventually became the norm. Several dozen of Tesla’s patents were related to alternating current science. The Tesla Coil Since named for its inventor, this impressive machine transforms energy into extremely high voltage charges, creating powerful electrical fields capable of producing spectacular electrical arcs. Besides the lightning-bolt shows they can put on, Tesla Coils had very practical applications in wireless radio technology and some medical devices. Tesla experimented with his coils in the last years of the 19th century. The true father of radio Tesla tinkered with radio waves as early as 1892, debuting a radio wave-controlled boat in 1898 with great fanfare at an electrical exhibition at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Expanding on the technology, he patented more than a dozen ideas related to radio communication, before Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi leapt ahead of a financially unstable Tesla and completed the first transatlantic radio transmission (a bit of Morse code, sent from England to Newfoundland) on the back of Tesla’s science. Marconi and Tesla’s battle for intellectual recognition waged for decades before the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately revoked some of Marconi’s patents in 1943, restoring Tesla as the father of radio, at least legally. Tesla quotes “Money does not represent such a value as men have placed upon it. All my money has been invested into experiments with which I have made new discoveries enabling mankind to have a little easier life.” — "A Visit to Nikola Tesla" by Dragislav L. Petković in Politika (April 1927) “The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter — for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes.” — “Radio Power Will Revolutionize the World" in Modern Mechanics and Inventions (July 1934) “The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.” — “Radio Power Will Revolutionize the World" in Modern Mechanics and Inventions (July 1934) tags: Tesla, electrical, engineer, electricity, motor, dynamo, current
