   If none provides better, one, not a 'paper', is

    Experoments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and
(or real close to that: verify with alibris, or other book search engine)
This is/was a book Tesla wrote.  I THINK Tesla made formal presentations to
AIEE (predecessor of IEEE), so if those archives be acessible
on line, even entries, there is another possibility.
