what is a principle of a electric generator
Asked by sumitsial | 30th Dec, 2009, 02:58: PM
The generator is based on the principle of "electromagnetic induction" discovered in 1831 by Michael Faraday, a British scientist. Faraday discovered that if an electric conductor, like a copper wire, is moved through a magnetic field, electric current will flow (be induced) in the conductor. So the mechanical energy of the moving wire is converted into the electric energy of the current that flows in the wire.
This the basic principle of generator.
Hope this helped you.
