Turbines are attache to either alternator or generator which converts mechanical energy to electric energy. Turbines convert the kinetic energy into mechanical energy. (Eg. steam turbine is a prime-mover in which te potential energy of the steam is transformed into kinetic energy and latter in its turn is transformed into the mechanical energy of the rotation of the turbine shaft)
