What is an electric generator?

An electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. A new generator, also known as a prime mover, uses various forms of energy such as coal, natural gas, or nuclear fuel to rotate a shaft connected to a rotor. The rotation of the rotor within a stator induces a magnetic flux, which in turn generates an electric current.

Direct current generators, also known as DC generators, produce a direct current, which flows in one direction. These types of generators are used in applications such as electroplating, welding, and battery charging.

Gas turbines, on the other hand, are often used as the prime mover for electric generators in power plants. A gas turbine compresses air and mixes it with fuel, which is then ignited to produce a high-speed stream of hot gas. The energy from this stream is used to rotate the turbine, which in turn rotates the rotor of the generator.

The rotor of an electric generator is typically made of a strong, conductive material such as copper or aluminium and contains field coils. These field coils are connected to a direct current source, which creates a magnetic field. As the rotor rotates within the stator, it cuts through the magnetic field, inducing a current in the stator’s windings.

Generator Output is Key – Check the Volts

The output of a generator is typically in the form of an alternating current (AC). AC is preferred over direct current (DC) because it can be easily transformed to different voltages and can be transmitted over long distances with minimal energy loss. AC generators are widely used in power plants and are the primary source of electricity for homes and businesses.

In summary, an electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. It consists of a rotor and stator, with the rotor containing field coils that are connected to a direct current source. The rotation of the rotor within the stator induces a magnetic flux, which generates an alternating current. Gas turbines are often used as the prime mover for electric generators in power plants, while direct current generators are used in applications such as electroplating and battery charging.

What Can I Use an Electric Generator For?

Electric generators are called upon in a whole range of different situations when mains power or other power sources are simply insufficient or unattainable. You’d find it surprising how many industries and market sectors rely on electric generators as a vital part of their backup plan.

Backup Power For Your House
Depending on where in the world you live, will help determine how critical home backup is to you. For example, having electric generators can be a critical and lifesaving source of both prime and standby power, for those of you who live in rural areas. There is nothing worse than being the victim of a power cut, with no way to solve the problem or even have light. Nowadays, people have their mobile phones to contact people for assistance in the event of a power outage, but having an electric generator will help you to get back up and running straight away, while the problem is being solved.
Standby Power For Businesses
Regardless of the size of your business, we recommend investing in an electric generator to keep your business up and running in the event of a power cut. Electric generators will help to backup your important files in cases of an unpredicted power outage. They also serve as a protective element to prevent power cuts from damaging expensive hardware. Don’t risk losing important files or damaging hardware; invest in an electric generator today.
Temporary Power On A Construction Site
Contractors find themselves working on many buildings where mains power has not yet been connected, and electric generators are often the only source of power available. Without the backup power from electric generators, contractors would be unable to carry out their daily tasks, or power the necessary equipment. This could also cause issues with timescales as if contractors are unable to power their tools, they will not be able to complete the work on time which could also cause problems with receiving payment.
Permanent Power: A Farm
Many places require permanent power, such as farms. A farm without a generator is a farm at risk and electric generators are very important in agricultural sectors. Without an electric generator, many crops farmed by clients would spoil, which leaves the farm and the owners open to criticism and a very bad month.
Helping Mains To Supply The Total Power Required
When the demand for power rises above the predicted level, electric generators are synchronised in order to provide the extra power required. These generators are known in the industry as STOR.
Pop concerts, Events and Exhibitions
Many large festivals and concerts are located in rural areas where the mains power is simply inaccessible. Electric generators can be used to power large lighting rigs, sound systems and even catering equipment.
Caravans/Camping In Remote Locations
Small electric generators are ideal for camping and caravan trips as they provide backup power to electric stoves and will even power small to medium appliances such as microwaves, hairdryers, mobile phones, showers and even air conditioning.
Outdoor Catering Facilities
Wedding venues and other large outdoor catering events require generators in order to power electric ovens, extractor fans, freezers and fridges, lights, music and other essential applications.
Premier League Football Stadiums
Football stadiums often require electric generators to power the floodlighting for the main pitch. A premier league stadium without a backup generator will not be accredited to hold any tournaments.
