How Electricity Works – The Basic Principle And Theory On Electricity!

The electricity we use every day is generated in power plants by converting resources such as water, sun, coal, oil, natural gas and wind into electrical power. It is generated by a large magnet that spins inside coils of wire. High pressure steam or water is used to turn a turbine – a large fan – attached to the generator to get the magnet spinning. As the magnet rotates inside the loops of wire, electric current is produced.
