U.S. Patent 416,194 - Electric Motor

Patent added 3/1/2015
This invention relates to the alternating-current electro-magnetic motors invented by me, in which a progressive shifting or rotation of the poles or points of maximum magnetic effect is produced by the action of the alternating currents. These motors I have constructed in a great variety of ways. As instances, I...
