Nikola Tesla, a Serbian- American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist. Best known for his work with the design or modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.


What is Electromagnetic Induction and how it is used by motors and generators?

Electromagnetic Induction is the production of a voltage across a conductor when it is shown to a magnetic field. It is used in generators by showing that the electrical energy that is generated is equal to the force needed to make it work. This similar along all generators. Motors changes mechanical energy into electrical energy by using a transformer of some sort.

Faraday's Invention

Faraday's experiment that involved induction coils, which showed the induction between the different coils. The liquid battery to the right provides a current that will flow through the small coil, creating an magnetic field. When the coils stay in one spot, there won't be a current needed or created.

Steam Generator

This generator uses a low- frequency alternating current electric power source to run.

Our invention!

An electromagnetic motor that uses sugar as a high- frequency alternating current that creates electricity for all of Round Rock.

How this improves our lives

In the industry aspect electromagnetic generators are used in heaters and broadcasting and communication transmitters.

In the General public, electromagnetic generators are used in computers, TVs, surveillance systems (anti-theft) and induction cookers.

In the Medical field, electromagnetic generators are used in MRI machines, nerve simulations and electro- surgical machines.

In the Military, electromagnetic generators are used in power units and communication units using high frequency.


All of the things above make human life easier and run easier. Some generators are even used in things that provide entertainment like TVs and computers. While some electro- surgical machines and MRIs can save lives and help doctors diagnose different medical complications.
