Nikola Tesla was a genius polymath, inventor and a mechanical and electrical engineer.

Teslas patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase power distribution systems and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.Born an ethnic Serb in the village of Smiljan, Vojna Krajina, in the territory of todays Croatia, he was a subject of the Austrian Empire by birth and later became an American citizen. After his demonstration of wireless communication (radio) in 1894 and after being the victor in the War of Currents, he was widely respected as one of the greatest electrical engineers who worked in America.
