Nikola Tesla is often described as one of the most important scientists and inventors in the world's history, a man who "shed light over face of the Earth". He is best known for many revolutionary contributions in the field of electricity and magnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
His greatest contribution to science and technological progress of the world was the rotating magnetic field invent. Also, he invented the complete system of production and distribution of electrical energy (motors, generators) based on the use of alternate currents. His name was given to the SI unit for magnetic induction ("tesla"). Tesla also constructed the generators of high-frequency alternating currents and high-voltage coreless transformer known today as "Tesla Coil".
In short, if you could separate and identify the largest Tesla's discoveries that affected our lives the most, then it would be three-phase electricity induction engine and polyphase system in general.
