American engineer and manufacturer who introduced the high-voltage alternating current system for the transmission of electricity in the United States. A prolific inventor, Westinghouse received hundreds of patents in his lifetime, including the air brake (1869),
automated train-switching signals, and devices for the transmission of natural gas. His inventions made an important contribution to the growth of railroads.
For the latter purpose, Westinghouse gas-regulators are employed, the positions of the regulators being so chosen as to equalize the pressure throughout the service.
Here, too, are the plants of the Westinghouse Company for the manufacture of electrical apparatus, of air brakes invented by George Westinghouse (born 1846), and of devices for railway signals which he also invented.
