Electric generators types
An electric generator is a machine that transforms mechanic power to electric power inside a magnetic field.
The electric generator works on Electromagnetic induction which is the basis in generating the inductive current.
It’s also called a “dynamo” and it’s a Latin name for an electric generator and it means the generator that produces continuous current using current reversal. And as mentioned, the electric generator transforms the mechanic power to an electric power source.
Electric generators and their history
In the early 19s, especially in 1831, The English scientist Micheal Faraday that electric current comes from moving the metal carrier under the influence of the magnetic field.
In 1850, A generator was produced for providing continuous electric current with 2.5 horsepower.
The electric generator was used at the old ages to lighten houses and generators were then so basic, it was running by steam engines with the speed that didn’t exceed 60 cycles per minute with only 3 horsepower.
Back in 1862, The scientist William Simens had invented the electric generator that used the electric magnet. He proved that it’s not necessary to use a permanent magnet to transform mechanic power to electric power.
The electric generator's development didn’t stop to that extent but a group of scientists developed the alternating current generator.
Electric generators types
The electric generator is running based on Electromagnetic induction which is the basis for generating inductive current, so we have two types of electric generators:
Alternative inductive AC generator.
Inductive current generator.
Electric generators efficiency:
Mechanic power is responsible to run generators and to transform to electric power with a little lose in mechanic power (Some goes as heat and others resist current in copper layers.
90% efficiency means that 90% of mechanic power is transformed into electric power and 10% turns to heat and then the generator needs a cooling system.
Electric generators advantages:
Electric generators have many advantages as they’re used in many fields like factories, houses, and big projects.
Electric generators in factories and companies:
For running machines, equipment, electric devices that stopped in case of electricity cut off. It could help to make employees continue their work again without interruptions or faults when the power cuts off.
In hotels and houses:
It’s important to have one or more electric generators in every hotel or house according to the available space and number of devices. It’s more important for hotels than houses however houses need the generator for the machines and elevators.
In big projects:
Like roads and bridges constructions and the projects in far desert places with no source of power. The generator here is so important to count on for many construction sites as it facilitates the process for any company to achieve their work as fast as possible without interruptions.
