    The A.C. system was developed in Europe based on the work of people like Guillaume Duchene in the 1850's, Ganz Works in the 1870's and Sebastion Ferranti in the 1880s. In the US, Westinghouse invested in AC technology while Edison stubbornly clung to DC technology. Tesla had a few patents in the Westinghouse system but his influence is overrated.

    Tesla invented the Electro Magnetic Motor in 1888.
    What really separates Tesla from the pack is his early, seemingly innate understanding of how electricity and magnetism pair to drive everything in nature.
    It's "Electro Magnetic" coupling. And thanks to Einstein leading everyone way off track, precious few understand it now.
