Nicola Tesla s View of the in Motive Power

Tesla in the above letter using a induction motor to increase the of an electric car. It is likely his electric car that he built in the s utilized one of his multi-phased induction The power source, according to his Authur Matthews first account, invented by Tesla, was a primary battery that was to power the car.

This was unique in that it had replaceable electrodes. When the zinc was up it was simply replaced. This would require a direct to multiphase power converter.

states that he made statements in publications in regards to electricity to power a car. down these statements dispel the myth that his car was by radiant energy.

Nikola Tesla’s View of the in Motive Power

(Special Cor . Record )

New York, December 27

In of the great interest which is taken in the articles published by the Record and some of the magazines on the of new power-producers, through the internal-combusion for use for transportation purposes both by and sea, the following signed made by Mr. Nikola Tesla a discussion of a new type of auto-bus by Mr. Charles A. Lieb, mechanical of the Manhattan Transit Co. will be read with much interest:

New York, December 17

Mr. Albert Phenia, Special Manufacturers’ Record, New York:

Sir – Replying to your inquiry of the application of electricity to the propulsion of is certainly a rational idea. I am to know that Mr. Lieb has to put it into practice.

His long with the General Electric Co. and concerns must have fitted him for the task.

There is no that a highly-successful machine can be on these lines. The field is and this new type of automobile, electricity between the prime and the wheels, has, in my opinion, a future.

I have myself for years advocated this Your will find in technical publications statements by me to this effect. In my article in the June, 1900, I said, in with the subject:  Steamers and are still being propelled by the application of steam power to or axles.

A much greater percentage of the energy of the fuel could be in motive energy by using, in of the adopted marine engines and dynamos driven by especially high-pressure steam or gas engines, by the electricity generated for the propulsion. A of 50 to 100 percent, in the effective energy from the fuel could be in this manner. It is difficult to why a fact so plain and obvious is not more attention from

At first glance it may appear to generate electricity by an engine and apply the current to turn a instead of turning it by means of mechanical connection with the is a complicated and more or less process. But it is not so; on the contrary, the use of electricity in manner secures great advantages. It is but a question of time this idea will be applied to railways and also the liners, though in the latter the conditions are not quite so favorable. How the companies can persist in using the locomotive is a mystery. By providing an generating electricity and operating the current motors under the a train can be propelled with speed and more economically.

In France this has already done by Heilman, and although his was not the best, the results he obtained creditable and encouraging. I have that a notable gain in and economy can also be secured in liners, on which the improvement is desirable for many reasons. It is likely that in the near oil will be adopted as fuel, and will make the new method of all the more commendable.

The electric manufacturing companies scarcely be able to meet new demand for generators and motors.

In practically nothing has been in this direction, and yet it would they offer the greatest for application of this principle. The however, is which motor to – the direct-current or my induction motor. The has certain preferences as regards the and regulation, but the commutators and brushes are objectionable on an automobile. In view of I would advocate the use of the induction as an ideally simple machine can never get out of order. The conditions are in as much as a very low frequency is and more than three can be used.

The regulation should offer difficulty, and once an automobile on novel plan is produced its will be readily appreciated.
