Induction Motor

Induction motors and generators are machines considered among the 10 greatest inventions of all time, since all the electrification that happened around the world from the end of the nineteenth century, and which eventually made possible the Second Industrial Revolution, depended on them. The invention of the first induction motor took place in the summer of 1883 in Strasbourg, France, by the Serbian-American scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla. The patent for its first induction motor came in 1888. Tesla ended up dying in poverty in a hotel at age 87, not having used these patents financially.

At the end of the nineteenth century, Thomas Edison, who was a defender of the direct current and George Westinghouse defending the alternating current were responsible for what became known as “war of the currents.” The electricity era was only possible because the CA predominated along with the Tescla technology registered in almost 300 patents reelcraft L403516310. Despite the irrefutable value of induction motors and their theoretical foundations, where Farady-Lenz’s Law is of great importance, these engines are not even mentioned in the books of general physics, something that deserves a conceptual and qualitative discussion.
