Power Generators / Stations



Type Source Conversion of energy
Thermal Generators
fossil fuel
(non-
renewable)

/

biomass fuel (renewable)

the burning of the fuels changes water into steam which is then used to rotate the turbines.

heat -> kinetic -> electrical

Hydroelectric
Generators
water
(renewable)
gravitational potential energy of water is converted to kinetic energy to turn the turbines

potential -> kinetic - > electrical

Nuclear power generators
radioactive materials
(non- renewable)
energy from nuclear fission is converted to heat to change water into steam to turn the turbine

nuclear -> heat -> kinetic -> electrical

Tidal power generators
water currents
(renewable)
kinetic energy of water turns the turbines


kinetic -> electrical

Wind
turbines
wind (renewable) kinetic energy of wind turns the turbines


kinetic -> electrical

Solar power generators Sun (renewable) with photoelectric cells, light energy is converted to electrical energy

light -> electrical
