Hydro- means water. A hydro-electric generator uses moving water from a river or dam to turn the generator and produce electricity.
Hydro-power generates power with the use of a turbine, it is attached to the armature of a generator. Mechanical energy is needed to turn the turbine, this force is provided by water (hydro) it turns the turbine which in turn spins the armature of the generator and generates electrical energy.
The hydro energy is stored in a high reservoir before it is run down a chute to gather speed and kinetic energy, and then it hits the water turbine blades to rotate the shaft that drives the generator.
Firstly kinetic energy into mechanical energy by turbine,then mechanical energy to electrical energy by generator.
The generator transforms mechanical energy to electrical energy by rotating a wired coil within a magnetic field. The mechanical energy is from steam in nuclear and combustion reactors (oil, gas coal). In hydro and wind power, it is from rotating turbines.
A turbine spins water creating kinetic (movement) energy. This kinetic energy is changed into electricity through a generator connected to it.
any common electrical generator ... windmill, hydro, bicycle wheel, steam turbine, etc.
what is hydro energy
Wind, Hydro, Gas/Coal powered power station
Gravitational potential energy in the water is converted into mechanical energy by turning turbine "blades", the mechanical energy (kinetic energy) is converted to electrical energy by the electric generator.
No. Hydro power is power from running water driving a turbine and a generator.
Hydro energy is energy made by water.
The energy we can get from the movement of water or from the force of water flow is called hydropower. It produces electricity as it flows towards a turbine, spinning the turbine and activating the generator.
A jet of water is diercted at a paddle wheel, making it spin. The spin is then transferred to an electric generator and turned into electric energy.
You can't directly. But using a hydro generator, water pushes a generator, which generates electricity
Generator uses kinetic energy and produces electrical energy. Hence, energy is transformed in generator.
The difference between ocean energy and hydro energy is that ocean energy collects kinetic energy from waves in the ocean, while hydro energy collects it from water coming down from dams
A generator can transform energy into electrical energy :)
A dynamo is the generator that converts mechanical energy into electricity. It uses the water pushing against a wheel to turn it, creating electricity.
An electrical generator generates electrical energy. It takes some kind of mechanical energy to turn the generator. The generator is said to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Hydro is Latin for water so hydro power gets its energy from water. It's often powered by a waterwheel.
Hydro energy is man made from natural resources
A generator changes mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Depends on what type of generator you are talking about. A Generator in an older car uses energy from the engine to produce electricity. New cars use alternators. A generator for a house can use Natural Gas, Propane, Diesel, Gasoline, or just about any combustible fluid. There are also wind and hydro electric powered generators.
