This seems to be a worthwhile nomination, but so far rather short of details

I could not find descriptions of this hydro system in English language books so far, so perhaps it would be useful to have a 'timeline' to relate this to other contemporary developments.

The key essentials are, I suppose, hydro-generation, multiphase and long distance high voltage transmission.

There are some existing IEEE milestones which cover similar developments at about the same time: 1. Redlands Power plant ( Mill Creek ) Hydro plant, 3 phase, 1893 2. Adams Hydro, high voltage distribution, multiphase, for use at Niagara Falls, 1895 3. Lota, Chile, Hydro plant, 3-phase motors (so I suppose 3-phase trannsmission), 1897 4. Decew Falls, Ontario, 2-phase, 22kV

Other relevant developments: 5. Connection Lauffen to Frankfurt (Germany) 25kV, 3-phase line, 175 km distance, 1891 6. Turin Italy, 2kV, 3-phase experiments, 1884 7. Hydroelectric plant at Portrush, Ireland, 1883

The book by Thomas P Hughes, Networks of power, electrification in Western Society, 1880-1930, John Hopkins UNiversity Press, 1983, has useful information.

Charles Scott (who worked with Nikola Tesla) was involved in a high voltage transmission system at Telluride (1891), and a scheme for converting 2-phase generators to 3-phase transmission at Niagara, in 1896, used the Scott transformer method (1894) to convert 2-phase to 3-phase.

Did Tesla have any hand in the Krka-Sibenik scheme?
