    This paper describes the first "polyphase" (more than one phase) system developed for the distribution of alternating current (AC) power. This two-phase system was subsequently rendered obsolete, however, by the superior three-phase system that is now universally used throughout the world. Today, the large-scale generation, transmission, and distribution of electric power is by means of the three-... View full abstract»
