PRISM - A versatile renewable power service provider.
The most common method of producing electricity is from generators with an electromagnet—a magnet produced by electricity. Typically, a generator has a series of insulated coils of wire that form a stationary cylinder. This cylinder surrounds a rotary electromagnetic shaft. When the electromagnetic shaft rotates, it induces a small electric current in each section of the wire coil. Each section of the wire coil becomes a small, separate electric conductor. The small currents of the individual sections combine to form one large current. This current is the electricity that moves through power lines from generators to consumers.
The chief components that go in to active generation of power are Turbines. A turbine converts the potential and kinetic energy of a moving fluid (liquid or gas) to mechanical energy. In a turbine generator, a moving fluid—such as water, steam, combustion gases, or air—pushes a series of blades mounted on a shaft, which rotates the shaft connected to a generator. The generator, in turn, converts the mechanical energy to electrical energy based on the relationship between magnetism and electricity.
Different types of turbines include steam turbines, combustion (gas) turbines, water (hydroelectric) turbines, and wind turbines. In steam turbines, hot water and steam are produced, both of which can be used further as renewable energy.
Combustion gas turbines, which are like jet engines, burn gaseous or liquid fuels to produce hot gases to turn the blades in the turbine.
Hydroelectric turbines use water to spin turbine blades, and wind turbines use the wind.
Electricity generators that do not use turbines include solar photovoltaic cells, which convert sunlight directly into electricity, and fuel cells, which convert fuels, such as hydrogen, into electricity through a chemical process.
