What is reactor and what are the types of reactor

What is Reactor: A reactor is a coil which has large number of turns and whose ohmic resistance value is much greater. Reactors are used to limit the short circuit currents which can cause damage to the equipment’s of the power system. The additional reactance added in series with the system for protection, are called…

steam turbine

Steam Turbine Working principle

steam turbine generator is a device that uses steam to rotate a turbine generator to produce electricity. Steam turbines use water that is heated to extremely high temperatures and converted into steam to rotate the blades of a turbine, in order to create mechanical or rotational energy.  This rotational energy caused by the high pressured…

Hydro Turbine Working Principle

Hydro turbine generators are devices that convert the mechanical energy from moving water into electrical energy. Hydro turbine generators can be effective using a vast array of water sources: a small stream, a fast flowing river, a waterfall, a small lake, and even from the oceans. How Hydroelectricity Works Hydroelectric energy is produced when the…

Types of Wind Turbines

A wind turbine generator is a device that converts wind into usable electrical energy. Electrical energy is produced when the wind energy is converted into mechanical energy by the spinning blades of a wind turbine, which are attached to a spinning rotor and a turbine generator. There are many different sizes and styles of wind…

How to connect solar panel to our home electrical appliances

Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power. Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic…

Geothermal energy

Geothermal Energy and Geothermal Power Plants

Geothermal Energy Heat has been radiating from the Earth’s core for billions of years. This heat is originated since the formation of the Earth and it is continuously regenerated by the decay of radioactive elements. The rate of this regeneration of geothermal heat is so high that it makes the geothermal energy a renewable resource….
