Electrical Generator “A device that turns Mechanical energy into electrical energy” **Note: A generator forces electrical charges to move through an external electrical circuit, but it DOES NOT create electricity or charge, which is already present in the wire of its windings.

History First known generator: “Dynamo” in 1827 was a single poled electric starter. Both moving and unmoving parts were electromagnetic. Machine produced a Direct Electric Current (DC). Led to many other inventions: DC electric motor, AC alternator, AC synchronous motor, and the rotary converter. Picture of a dynamo

Basic Explanation A spinning coil (presumably copper) located between two magnets that creates a steady flow of electrons. These electrons are forced through an external circuit that is connected to the object needing power. By passing electrons through wires, conduction of electricity happens when forced by the magnetic field produced by the magnets

Magnifying the Current Magnitude of the current can be increased by: Increasing the Strength of the Magnetic Field Increasing the speed of the relative motion Positioning of field and conductor to increase number of magnetic lines of flux cut.
