How To Generate Electricity From Water?

hydro power plant 1

We use electricity everywhere nowadays, it’s necessity for us. Have you ever wondered what does electricity come from? How to generate electricity?

People can generate electricity from different ways, like power plants by burning coal, wind powers, hydroelectricity, or else different source. Here we main talk about hydroelectricity method.

Hydroelectricity power is generated by flowing water which usually established a dam to convert flowing water into electricity near a river. Using a power source to turn the turbine propellers. As the turbine spins, it turns a metal shaft connected an electric generator-the motor which produces electricity.

The water use hydroelectric dam to turn the turbine, the dams would be constructed with a special passageway called penstock for water, the passageway is sloped downward to create a flow of falling water.

When the water falls down the passageway, it will be past the water turbine propellers directly, then the force of the flowing water would turn the turbine ----in turn spins the metal shaft in the electric generator--- to produce electricity.

In the whole process, the dams are important and should be constructed on large rivers that have a large drop in elevation, so that the dam stores water to regulate the water flow to produce electricity on demand at a specific rate.

In some power generation plant, the water can be reused by special design. This is a environmental, high efficiency method to product electricity.
