    A generator is a device that converts mechanical or chemical energy into electrical energy. Generators often use motors, turbines, engines, cranks, pistons, or other sources of mechanical energy. Likewise, generators may use chemicals or other materials that produce electricity when mixed or ignited. Generators do not produce electricity itself, but simply produce a flow of electricity by forcing electrons from an external source to flow through an electrical circuit. Generators are used for a wide variety of purposes and are available in many different forms.
    How a Generator Works
    Generators employ a wide assortment of external forces to produce an electric current, causing them to be very large. They are made to generate electricity for an entire building, city, or region. Water, wind, seismic activity, manual labor, magnetism, steam, compressed air, or gasoline, can power generators. However, gasoline generators are the most common for commercial and domestic applications. In any type of generator, a mechanical force is used to move a turbine or other rotary device in order to excite electrons and induce an electrical current in a circuit. The electricity is then directed through copper wires to power external machinery such as lighting systems or other electronic devices.
