A Generator Is A Mechanical Device
- Aug 14, 2018 -

A generator is a mechanical device that converts other forms of energy into electricity. It is driven by a turbine, steam turbine, diesel engine, or other power mechanism. The energy generated by water flow, air flow, fuel combustion or nuclear fission is converted into mechanical energy and transferred from the generator to electric energy.

Generators are widely used in industrial and agricultural production, national defense, science and technology and daily life.There are many forms of a generator, but its working principle is based on the laws of electromagnetic induction and electromagnetic force.Therefore, the general principle of its construction is: use appropriate magnetic and conductive materials to form magnetic circuits and circuits for mutual electromagnetic induction, so as to generate electromagnetic power and achieve the purpose of energy conversion.
