Van_de_graaff_generator_sm

An electrostatic generator , or electrostatic machine , is a mechanical device that produces static electricity , or electricity at high voltage and low continuous current . The knowledge of static electricity dates back to the earliest civilizations, but for millennia it remained merely

Fusion power print that page

Wires_array

The term is commonly used to refer to potential commercial production of net usable power from a fusion source, similar to the usage of the term " steam power ." The leading designs for controlled fusion research use magnetic ( tokamak design) or inertial ( laser ) confinement of a plasma

Modern_Steam_Turbine_Generator

In electricity generation , an electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy . A generator forces electrons in the windings to flow through the external electrical circuit . It is somewhat analogous to a water pump, which creates a flow of water but

Van de Graaff generator print that page

Van_de_graaff_generator_sm

A Van de Graaff generator is an electrostatic generator which uses a moving belt to accumulate very high voltages on a hollow metal globe on the top of the stand. It was invented in 1929 by American physicist Robert J. Van de Graaff . The potential differences achieved in modern Van

Umformer

A motor generator (an M-G set or a dynamotor for dynamo -motor) is a device for converting electrical power to another form. In some contexts, the other form is mechanical energy ; in other contexts, it is a different form of electricity . The two senses refer to different types of equipment

Electric charge print that page

negative electric charge Charge is the fundamental property of forms of matter that exhibit electrostatic attraction or repulsion in the presence of other matter. Electric charge is a characteristic property of many subatomic particles . The charges of free-standing particles are integer
