A generator in a power plant converts rotating kinetic energy into electrical energy. So it is a generator
In order for Kinetic energy to be converted into electrical energy, the kinetic energy usually drives the rotation or oscillation of a magnet in close proximity to coiled wire.

A bar magnet can be moved up and down through the centre of a looped coil of wires. As the wire comes into contact with the magnetic field of the magnet, a current is induced in the wire. (see Left hand rule)

Likewise, a collection of magnets attached to a large prop shaft when rotated will induce a current in a large array of coiled wires which surround but do not touch the circled array of magnets.

Kinetic energy is essentially converted into electrical energy in most production of electricity. Oil, Gas, Coal or Nuclear energy are all used to heat water; the steam of which turns turbines and therefore the prop shaft. (Chemical energy-kinetic energy-electrical energy)
Through a generator shaft........ +++ I imagine the questioner knows that, but wants to what is on the shaft! An electrical generator is a set of coils of wire so arranged than when rotated they cut across a strong magnetic field, and it is this that induces the current in the windings, extracted by suitable means for feeding it to the circuit connected to the machine's output.
A generator does this by passing a rotating coil of wire through a magnetic field. Electric current is induced in the coil.

What is a Device that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy?

A Generator AC and DC generators(also called dynamos). Whenever magnetic flux through a closed wire loop changes current flows in it. We use mechanical energy to produce change in flux and generate electricity. A device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy is called an Electric ( Full Answer )

How a dynamo converts kinetic energy into electric energy?

without the aid of other energy sources? no idea... but a dynamo is being run by electromagnetism i think, and thus producing kinetic energy by spinning the shaft... and then the resistance in the conductors, friction in the moving parts, and electromagnetic radiation. just my 2 cents.. >.

Which device converts high electricity into lower energy electricity?

Well, saying "electricity" is being a bit too vague. I won't go into the particulars, but it sounds like you're looking for a transformer. However, it also sounds like you should probably hire someone to do whatever it is you're trying to do. Electricity can be very dangerous in the hands of an untr ( Full Answer )

What is something in a home that converts electrical energy into kinetic energy?

l Here are some things in your home that convert electrical energy into kinetic energy (the energy of motion): 1. A garage door opener. The motor uses electricity to move the garage door up and down. 2. Your stereo or tv. Coils in the speakers use electricity to move the speaker cone back and ( Full Answer )

Is turbine a device that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy?

Strictly speaking, a turbine turns a flow or a jet of something into a rotary motion. Can be wind, water or steam. But that rotary motion can then be used to spin a generator/alternator/dynamo, and all of these will then produce electric energy. Often the two are so closely integrated, that the whol ( Full Answer )

What device converts electrical energy into heat energy?

Pretty much all electrical and electronic devices convert at least some electrical energy into heat energy. * microprocessors (that's why some of them need big heat sinks) * transformers (that's why the big ones are mounted in a tank of cooling oil) * rechargeable batteries * flourescent li ( Full Answer )

What machine converts kinetic energy to electricity?

-- Hand-crank generator -- Hydroelectric generator -- Windmill generator -- Front-wheel generator on a bicycle -- Car generator, run by a belt from a wheel on the crank-shaft -- Any turbine generator, i.e. turned by a shaft which is forced to turn by anything else

Which device is used for converting potential energy into kinetic energy?

There is no "device" that is used to convert potential energy (PE) to kinetic energy (KE). PE is energy of position, for example, a bowling ball held over your head has the potential of breaking your foot if it were to fall. KE is energy of motion, for example, the energy the bowling ball has as it ( Full Answer )

What are the devices that convert magnetic energy into electrical energy?

Magnetic energy and electric energy are virtually the same according to Maxwell's equations. Which shows maxwell doesnt know what he is talking about then, they are two very distinc energies. Im not sure myself about the ways to convert them I am looking into it at this very moment.

What energy can Kinetic energy be converted to?

Kinetic energy can be converted into almost any other form ofenergy (if you can find the technology to do so) for eg. intoelectric energy if it is a rotating shaft by connecting agenerator, into heat if that same rotating shaft were connected toa piston and pressurizing a gas, or if the moving (kine ( Full Answer )

What Device converts energy motion in to electrical energy?

A turbine. Turbines use the force of air, water, or an engine to turn them. When the water/air/engine pushes against the turbine blades, they turn the "rotor" which spins inside a magnetic field produced by the stator. A car's alternator is a type of turbine generator that is driven by an engine. Ot ( Full Answer )

Which Device converts electrical energy from mechanical energy?

Modern electrical generators make use of Faraday's law to convert mechanical energy in the form of motion into electrical energy. Mechanical energy is used to turn large magnetic coiled in electrical wire, and as the magnets and thus magnetic field moves, an electrical current is induced in the wire ( Full Answer )

What device converts electrical energy to light energy?

An incandescent light bulb does that, as does a radiant heating element. A light-emitting diode (LED) also generates light from electricity from the excitation of a semiconductor junction. A fluorescent bulb can be used to create light from electricity by stimulating the chemical to fluoresce. Gaseo ( Full Answer )

How convert kinetic energy into electrical energy at home?

There are flashlights where you push with your hand, and a dynamo produces an electrical current. In general, a dynamo can do what you ask for. But usually the proposition is not very practical. Where would you get the kinetic energy from?

What machine use to convert kinetic energy to electrical energy?

-- steam turbine -- hydroelectric turbine -- wind turbine -- hand-crank generator I think even the nuclear power plants do that ... they use the heat from the reactor core to boil water, then run it through a steam turbine to generate the electric power.

What device converts mechanical energy into electricity?

A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. Older cars had generators that produced DC electricity. On newer cars (since the 50's or 60's) they have a generator but to emphasize the fact that it is a different type which produces AC current instead of DC they are now called altern ( Full Answer )

Does a transformer convert electrical energy into kinetic energy?

A transformer moves energy from one circuit to another. What form that energy takes is dependent on the apparatus being supplied with the energy. If going to a light, the energy is thermal and radiant. If going to a fan it is kinetic.
