Have you ever wondered how a machine like a wind turbine generates electricity? This task is accomplished through the use of a machine called an Electric generator. The primary principle of an electric generator is to transfer mechanical energy into electrical energy. There are two types of generator: Dynamos and Alternators. Dynamos generate DC current while alternators generate AC current. Usually, the current is generated by using the relationship between electricity and magnetism to induce a current. There are many types of electric generators, ranging from the classical steam driven generator to the sublime magnetohydrodynamic generator.
