the production of electricity
Electricity is produced in power stations (thermoelectric hydroelectric wind power geothermal solar nuclear). Most electricity production methods are based on using pressurized steam, where the pressurized water is heated to extremely high temperatures (even over 600°) with the use of a primary energy source; the heated steam expands in a turbine that rotates an alternator. The use of a steam turbine combined with an alternator is common in turbogas, nuclear, thermodynamic solar, and geothermal electricity production.
Turbine-alternator combinations are also common in wind power and hydroelectric production, while only photovoltaic and the use of hydrogen in combustion cells do not involve rotating parts. Electricity is produced in power stations (which can be: thermoelectric, hydroelectric, wind power, geothermal, solar power, nuclear). In general the most common production methods are those that use pressurized steam (pressurized water heated to high temperatures, even over 600°) heated by a primary energy source. The temperature of the heated steam turns a turbine that is connected to an alternator. The combination of these two movements produces electricity (turbogas, nuclear, thermodynamic solar power, and geothermal). The same combination is used, even if in a different way, to produce electricity using hydroelectric and wind power, while photovoltaic energy does not have rotating parts.
