    ottó titusz bláthy (11 august 1860 – 26 september 1939) was a hungarian electrical engineer. in his career, he became the co-inventor of the modern electric transformer,[1][2] the tension regulator,[3] the ac watt-hour meter.[3][4]motor capacitor for the single-phase (ac) electric motor,[citation needed] the turbo generator,[5] and the high-efficiency turbo generator.[citation needed]

    bláthy's career as an inventor began during his time at the ganz works in 1883. there, he conducted experiments for creating a transformer. the name "transformer" was created by bláthy.[citation needed] in 1885 the zbd model alternating-current transformer was invented by three hungarian engineers: ottó bláthy, miksa déri and károly zipernowsky. (zbd comes from the initials of their names). in the autumn of 1889 he patented the ac watt-meter.[6]
