Electric generators used to supply electric power networks produce AC (alternating current). Speed and construction of the generator varies on the basis of characteristic of the mechanical prime mover. Generators can also produce the electrical power needed for aircraft, trains, automobiles and ships. Generator has two main parts namely rotor and stator. Rotor is rotating part whereas stator is a stationary part of generator. The mechanical power needed for an electric generator can be generated from a rotating shaft. It can be generated from various sources such as hydraulic turbines at waterfalls or dams, steam turbines that uses fossil fuels, gas turbines, diesel, and gasoline engines.
Different types of electric generators are dynamo, alternator, homopolar generator, induction generator, MHD generator and other rotating electromagnetic generators. As numbers of generators are connected to power network, they should work at the same frequency for concurrent generation. These are known as synchronous generators or alternators. A portable generator is a diesel or gas powered machine which offers temporary electrical power. It is designed to be a temporary electrical generator. Its engine turns a small turbine and generates usable electricity up to a particular level of wattage. Several construction teams employ a portable generator to power lights and tools at a remote site. However, portable generators are considered as a dangerous alternative to stationary generators as they offer harmful effects of the exhaust fumes from portable generators.
