An interesting feature of the arc produced by these rapidly alternating currents is its persistency. There are two causes for it, one of which is always present, the other sometimes only.

One is due to the character of the current and the other to a property of the machine. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that’s often difficult to discover.

Electrical journals are getting t /5(3). 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. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, and futurist.

He is best known for his contributions to the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system, the successful system in the "War of Currents" and the Tesla coil. Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency - Kindle edition by Tesla, Nikola.

Book Excerpt n, so it seems that; in all branches of industry alternating currents--electric wave motion--will have the sway.

One reason, perhaps, why this branch of science is being so rapidly developed is to be found in the interest which is attached to its experimental study.3/5(1).

Alternating current (AC) is an electric current which periodically reverses direction, in contrast to direct current (DC) which flows only in one direction.

Alternating current is the form in which electric power is delivered to businesses and residences, and it is the form of electrical energy that consumers typically use when they plug kitchen appliances, televisions, fans and electric lamps.

phenomena of alternating currents of very high frequency Nikola Tesla This short book is a transcript of a lecture that Tesla gave to the London society of electrical engineers on a topic of experiments with alternate currents of high potential and high frequency.

Phenomena of Currents of High Frequency. I did not mean to imply that, whatever work Prof. Thomson has done in alternating currents of very high frequency, he had done subsequent to his letter published in the Electrician. I thought it possible, and even probable, that he had made his experiments some time before, and my statement in regard.

But voltages and currents that vary with time are very common. The electric mains supply in our homes and offices is a voltage that varies like a sine function with time. Such a voltage is called alternating voltage (ac voltage) and the current driven by it in a circuit is called the alternating File Size: KB.Internal heating strategies, such as circulating alternating currents (AC) at high frequencies to heat batteries via I 2 R losses seem to be a viable alternative [1][2][3] [4].
