About power generation

The power industry is known as the generation, transmission, distribution and sale of electric power to the general public. The electrical industry started with introduction of electric lighting in 1882. Throughout the 1880s and 1890s, growing economic and safety concerns lead to the regulation of the industry. Once an expensive innovation limited to the most densely populated areas, reliable and economical electric power has become a requirement for normal operation of all elements of developed economies.

Electricity generation is the process of generating electric power from other sources of primary energy. For electric utilities, it is the first process in the delivery of electricity to consumers. The other processes, electricity transmission, distribution, and electrical power storage and recovery.  Electricity is most often generated at a power station by electromechanical generators, primarily driven by heat engines fueled by combustion or nuclear fission but also by other means such as the kinetic energy of flowing water and wind.

Other energy sources include solar photovoltaics and geothermal power. Wedge wire is used in ion exchange tanks and water intake systems seen in these electric plants.
