Excerpt from The Alternating Current Transformer The following pages originated from a course of University lectures. It is hoped that the book will be of use to the engineer and general reader. Some knowledge of elementary alternating currents is presupposed. I have found that the student who grasps the theory of the transformer has little difficulty with the more complicated actions and reactions taking place in the induction motor, and is also helped in his study of synchronous apparatus. Chapters I and II are merely introductory. Chapters III to V, carefully studied, should give the reader a thorough knowledge of the transformer. The tests in Chapter VI should be carried out by the student on a few commercial types. The method of design in Chapter VII is offered as a probable improvement over that usually given in text books. I wish to thank the manufacturers for the loan of cuts used in Chapter X. Thanks are also due the publishers who have maintained their reputation for sparing no effort or expense to make the book mechanically as perfect as possible. I am indebted to Mr. A. S. Kalenborn for reading proofs. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.

Nikola Tesla was a genius who revolutionized how the world looks at electricity. During college his professors explained that it was impossible to design an engine without commutators or brushes. Tesla was unconvinced that such was necessary or even particularly desirable. It was then that Tesla began his work on the rotating field motor that ultimately gave birth to the modern age. In May of 1888, Tesla delivered his lecture "A New System of Alternating Current Motors and Transformers" before The American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the world has never been the same.
