This is the third episode in our series titled ‘Understanding Power’
This episode delves into the different mechanisms and methods for generating electricity.
The first thing we discuss is how kinetic energy is turned into electrical energy using a generator.
This video then goes into the different ways that kinetic energy is converted from other forms of energy, some that are storable and others that are not.
We then delve into renewable power generation technologies and their merits and disadvantages.
Finally this video touches on the topic of curtailment and how excess power, predominantly from renewables, may have to be wasted because it is produced in excess of the load with insufficient storage options.
