If an electrical outlet is warm to the touch, it means that there is likely a short circuit in one of the wires. A short circuit occurs when electricity skips some of the path it was intended to take in the circuit desig... More »

Water turbines produce electricity from kinetic energy by using the force of falling water to stimulate an electric generator. There are two types of water turbines: impulse turbines and reaction turbines. According to t... More »

Wind turbines turn the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical energy and then electricity through the use of a shaft and a gearbox that power an internal generator. Sensors in the wind turbine allow it to turn and ad... More »

Wind energy is a form of electricity that is created by wind turbines. Wind energy is used as a mechanical power that is transformed into electricity, with the use of a generator. More »
