Us patent 0,390,820 - regulator for alternate current motors - 1888 october 9 - improvement in the electrical transmission systems means of regulating and power of the motor or motors used with system of multiple motors primarily (or systems with motors and transformers) that have independent energizing circuits. These are tesla's own words, “he (jp morgan) carried out his generous promise to the letter and it would have been most unreasonable to expect from him anything more” regarding the first part of the question, could nikola tesla's ideas and inventions actually provided electricity for the world for free, see links to. The alternating current created magnetic poles that reversed themselves without mechanical aid, as dc motors required, and caused an armature (the the electrical coil named for its inventor is one of tesla's showiest inventions, and he used it to its full dramatic extent in demonstrations held in his new york city lab.
