A single-wire transmission line is a method of supplying electrical power through a single electrical conductor. In 1729, the English physicist Stephen Gray noticed the phenomenon of electrical conductivity. Essentially, electric currents may be transmitted from one body to another along a conductor, and all conductors contain movable charges of electricity. At the end of the 19th century, Tesla demonstrated that by using an electrical network tuned to resonance and using, what at the time would be called, "high frequency AC" and today would be low frequency AC, only a single wire was necessary for power systems, with no need for a metal or Earth return conductor. Tesla called it the "transmission of electrical energy through one wire without return."show more
