Industrial power generators turn energy from burning fuels or captured waste heat into electric power. Industrial generators fall into 4 major categories classified by the fuel that drives the generator.
There are Diesel Generators, Electric Generators, Steam Turbine Generators, and Gas Generators.
Generator Sets include the “prime mover” or engine, the generator, reduction gear, and exciter. For many of the generator sets that are powered by an internal combustion engine (gas turbine, diesel, etc), the set usually includes all of the components needed to produce electricity on one skid.
Power plants are complete plants for the production of electricity. Power plants usually contain steam boilers, generator sets, transformers, and auxiliary equipment.
Here are common terms used in describing steam turbine generators:
