Recommended Posts

Watch what takes place during the tig welding demonstration, old Smith AC operating on 60 cycle current for every dip in the sine wave going below the base line there's an intermittent current break.

 

Europe on her 50 cycle power grid would be so much worse.

Some history, Thomas Edison versus George Westinghouse.

 

Not for the squeamish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_currents

Actually, Westinghouse was backing Tesla.  Tessa had been working for Edison before he went off to promote his AC system against Edison's D.C. system.

To hear some people tell it, Thomas Edison was nothing but a scurrilous “patent troll.”
