6 Engineers Who Revolutionized the World’s Electrical System

All the technology that you use today, will not function without electricity . The study and development of electricity was long before the first industrial revolution began.

Here are 6 engineers who are pioneers in the world electrical system revolution.

1. Michael Faraday

Michael Faraday

In 1831, Faraday discovered the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction. The results of his experiments are now the basis of modern electronic technology.

2. Alessandro Volta

In 1800, Volta published the electronic device “voltaic pile” which became the forerunner of battery technology

3. Georg Ohm

Ohm showed that the electric current flowing in a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.

His name is immortalized as the unit for electrical resistance.

4. Andre-Marie Ampere

Andre-Marie Ampere

Ampere conducted a theoretical and practical study of electric currents. Because of his services, his name is immortalized as a unit of electric current.

5. Gustav Kirchoff

German physicist who studied the characteristics of electric currents in conductors.

His famous contribution is Kirchhoff’s Law, where the amount of current entering the branch is equal to the amount of current flowing out.

6. Nikola Tesla 

Tesla was the engineer who made the AC power system widely used today.

Contributions include AC electric motors, electricity distribution, and many others.

Thus the discussion about the six engineers who revolutionized the world’s electrical system. Hopefully useful and inspire us all.
