• oh no

• there is no electricity I was just about to finish my game

• have to restart it now food

• seems like there is still a problem in the electricity supplies

• Don't worry it'll be back in a moment. Wow

• it's back.We can't on do anything without electricity

• these days .Yeah, but do you know from where your electricity comes

• from? I think it comes from that switch !

• Right?

• You are very right!Electricity comes to this TV from this switch.

• But what about the source of all the electricity

• that comes to everyone's home?Let me ask my friends

• Do you know where electricity comes from

• Do you want to k now the sources of it and how it is produced?

• Ok,ok.Take a look here.

• What is this?

• This is a coil of wire and a magnet mounted on a shaft.

• What it is used for?It is used to produce electricity.

• But how? If we spin a magnet around with-in a coil of wire

• electricity is produced in the wire.

• Oh, it is so simple!

• All we need to have is a coil of wire

• and a magnet to make electricity. And just spin the magnet with-in the coil.

• This process is known as electromagnetic induction

• Can I spin this magnet? Oh yes!

• But let me first attach a small electric bulb with the wires.

• Now you can spin the magnet with the help of the handle.

• Wow ,the bulb is on!

• So guys now you know the basics of producing electricity !

• Now something to remember ! The machine

• having a magnet and coil of wire ,in this way, is known

• as generator .So we need a generator like this to produce electricity?

• Yes, in most of the cases a generator is required.

• Wow ! Now I can produce electricity

• electricity for my entire home

• with this generator . But see,this is too small !

• This can light up only a small bulb.

• You need a big generator for getting more electricity.

• Let me show you !

• Oh ,it does not look like the earlier generator!

• Let's peep inside!

• Oh yes, it also has a big magnet

• linked with a shaft and wires all around it.

• Remember every generator has this kind of arrangement inside it.

• Hmmm, if I spin this generator shaft

• I can light up my entire home !

• Hmmm, now try to move it.

• Ah

• Ah

• I can't spin it.

• It is very heavy to move.

• Now have a look at these giant generators!

• Oh,wow! That's so huge.Yeah,these big generators are used to produce electricity

• for a whole city.But how do they spin the magnet inside these big generators?

• I can't even move the smaller one!

• To move the magnet inside the big generator

• a big fan is attached to this shaft.

• A big fan? Yeah, look here.

• These big bands are called

• turbines. Turbines?

• Yeah,turbines.

• Friends! hope you remember generator ,the machine to make electricity !

• now I remember turbine that is the second most important tool

• A turbine helps the generator to work

• so that it can produce electricity.

• But how does this fan,I mean turbine help

• in turning the generator?Look here!

• In some cases ,a lot of water is poured over this

• The flowing water makes it turn.When the turbine moves,

• shaft of the generator also moves.

• Wow ! so water helps in running the generator! You got it right! The electricity

• is generated with the help of the water .This kind of electricity is known as hydroelectricity

• The word hydro means related to water.

• But to turn a big generator ,we may need a lot of water?

• From where all this water will come ?

• For that ,we need to visit a dam.

• Dam?What is a dam?Let's go and see !

• Wow! There is a lot of water here!Seems like water is being stopped here!

• Yes, it is a kind of a barrier to

• to stop river water.Lot of water is collected

• here. But why? Well

• Jimmy ,this stored water is used either for

• water supplies or for generating electricity.Oh !

• That is why there are a lot of turbines

• and generators nearby!

• This is called hydro-electric plant.

• Water from higher level flows into a pipe that carries it down

• to a turbine.As water moves down ,it gains a lot of pressure

• This flowing water drives the turbine

• that is connected to the generator.And inside the generator ,

• there is a large electromagnet

• in the coil of copper wire.

• When this magnet rotates inside the coil of wire.

• electricity is produced.Then it is sent to our homes

• through transmission lines.Wow! It is so clear to me

• Water from the dam

• moves the turbine,turbine drives the generator. And generator

• produces the electricity.Guys,

• have a closer look.This is how water helps in producing electricity.

• me visit do the damn let interesting

• but camby is any are deleted on the turbine

• yet down many believe in many cases

• it is moved by 15 ski you much how Kim scheme rules

• any plane

• it all look at this Kenya finnick

• eat is very simple have to be 07

• NT Wright see

• we need them home on one Daniel

• made you sexcii Union the mitigation

• bomber like 10 only yeah steam is a

• gas it is just like any you

• let me try to make this stop by spin

• 0 he did not even Red Bull winch

• kid it is very heavy we need not depression

• Remi no I don't need to move it but some they have really get that much of

• in more to be electricity generating plants what

• if put in Big Bang being it is blind to produce steam and take care bye

• is moved with the creation of 15 like my

• a meal yet now let's see how the whole system black

• like your

• is eating I'm kit Jenny sistine and st. moves Dec 2009

• that Spain's shaft connected to a maddening inside the final blinds

• bad can you name the fuel used for heating the wanted to do

• team me can use electricity to heat water

• like we used to take fine and he's a act or

• here right like using electricity to produce electricity can be baby costly

• think not me

• we can use coolly Kenyan we can use

• own we can also use natural gas if but I owe my life

• are you paying him thatcher I doors fossil fuels

• so we can you just call it and natural gas as fuel

• to be able to walk out you can use team don't look down by

• yet kathleen you think each student you

• electricity these is also called permanent enmity

• and this is done income made plans correct

• but that lunch where we use uranium F you want to produce electricity

• I'm known as nuclear power plant from

• I am by eight bring when

• in finding all for sale feel its main gate

• all well then there would be no electricity in this wind

• from even find itself by me the

• our finding new ways to generate electricity my

• am now formally 250 is being produced a handful

• wing and live in fact mom

• that is a complete can you tell me more about peace

• okay you can this is going to wind me

• he believes om windmill def to buying

• didn't need to move due to the wind 0

• still we don't feeling we can generate the electricity

• now tell me about the Wii's to get electricity from the Sun

• feet goodnight for on special plan is God

• for duplicate fans be faulted use electricity

• while buchanan et tu City

• far in finite PDF file name: and Sun

• has bball only speaking feel bad from home but

• like dumb what

• feel big deal is on dance and electromagnetic induction

• also click on this link to be made up a raise
