Hydroelectric energy is generated by water flowing over a turbine, which turns an electric generator and creates current. The force that moves the turbine comes from the flowing or falling water, and the turbine continue... More »

Hydroelectric generators harness the power of water being forced through a dam to turn the blades of turbines, generating electricity. These plants work with gravity instead of steam as is the case with coal-fired power ... More »

Hydroelectric dams produce electricity by using falling water to spin a turbine that is connected to a generator through a large metal shaft. The power that the generator receives from the turbine is converted into elect... More »

Hydroelectric power is the converting of energy coming from running water to produce electricity. Hydroelectricity is a similar term that refers to the electricity that is produced from this process. More »

Hydroelectricty is produced when moving water turns a turbine that connects to a generator. In most instances, a dam stores water and releases it through a channel to turn the turbine. More »

An impulse turbine, the most common type of small water turbine, works by using a pressurized water jet to turn a wheel called a runner. The runner then turns a shaft attached to the alternator or generator that generate... More »
