ELECTRICAL PLANT WORK
nexteraenergyresourcesImage: nexteraenergyresourcesElectricity is produced at a an electric power plant. Some fuel source, such as coal, oil, natural gas, or nuclear energy produces heat. The heat is used to boil water to create steam. The steam under high pressure is used to spin a turbine. The spinning turbine interacts with a system of magnets to produce electricity.

How do power plants work? | How do we make electricity?
Dec 08, 2019Nuclear power plants work in a similar way to simple cycle coal or oil plants but, instead of burning fuel, they smash atoms apart to release heat energy. This is used to boil water, generate steam, and power a steam turbine and generator in the usual way. For more details, see our main article on how nuclear power plants work. Hydro
Hydroelectric Power: How it Works
Aug 30, 2018So just how do we get electricity from water? Actually, hydroelectric and coal-fired power plants produce electricity in a similar way. In both cases a power source is used to turn a propellor-like piece called a turbine, which then turns a metal shaft in an electric generator, which is the motor that produces electricity.Conductivity (Electrical Conductance) and WaterOct 22, 2019What is Hydrology? - usgsSep 11, 2019Teacher's Resources for Water EducationJun 25, 2019Hydroelectric Power Water UseAug 30, 2018See more results
