  • In this classic paper presented at an AlEE meeting on May 16, 1888, Nikola Tesla outlined some of the potential advantages of a revolutionary alternating-current power system that would largely supplant the older direct-current system developed by Thomas Edison following a short struggle known as the “battle of the systems.” Additional details of the new system were contained in a group of US. patents that were issued to Tesla approximately two weeks before he gave this paper.
