Transcript of Electric Generators

ELECTRIC GENERATORS To this This An Electric Generator is... And even this! You may recognize a variety of electric generators
found in everyday life, such as... As we know, electricity can not be created but rather transferred from one form to another. The electricity made by an electric generator is obtained through mechanical energy, powered by natural resources (such as a solar panel, wind turbine or hydroelectric generater) or from different types of fuels (gasoline, diesel). ...But how does it work? And how exactly does it relate to electricity? A wonderful machine that uses mechanical energy to produce electricity! ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION
is the answer Mechanical energy forces the movement of a conductive wire/coil around a magnet (or vice versa), cutting through the magnetic field and generating a steady flow of electrons as pressure from the magnet pushes the electrons in motion. The specific amount of electrons
in motion is calculated as amperage (amps).
The pressure from the generator that pushes the electrons is calculated as voltage (volts). In perspective: the higher the current, the more electrons must flow at a certain speed, the more mechanical force is required to enable the magnet to be able to produce more electrons and pressure. If that does not help, maybe this will. Electric generators are environmentally friendly. Have a nice day. whoa, what's that thing?
