  • Extra Electrons On The N Side
    1,711 words
    Photovoltaic cells are solid state devices that convert light directly into electricity. Photovoltaic literally means "light electricity". These devices can be commonly found providing power for small scale devices such as calculators, watches, and small radios. However, they are not limited to small scale systems. They are also used to power satellites, communications equipment, houses and many other things, especially in remote locations where a power grid is not readily available. In isolated...

  • Solar Power To Electricity In Space
    976 words
    Living In Space: Energy Space is filled with radiant energy and beyond earth's atmosphere this energy flow more steadily and more intensely from the sun than that which penetrates to the surface of the Earth. So an abundant and essential source of energy that would be used in space for the space colony would be solar radiation by developing satellite solar power stations. To live in space, humans must be protected from the fierce intensity and penetrating wavelengths of unattenuated sunlight, bu...
  • Electricity In A Geothermal Power Plant
    1,220 words
    Energy is the ability to do work. The two different types of energy are kinetic and potential. Kinetic energy is energy in motion and potential energy is energy that is stored. Energy is measured in units which are BTU (British thermal unit) and a joule. The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can't be created or destroyed, but it can be changed in form. Heat is a form of energy that comes in different forms such as conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is when energy is...
  • Development Of Kinetic Of Potential Energy
    1,107 words
    Work Work is said to be done when the point of application of a force moves and is measured by the product of the force and the distance moved in the direction of the force. Work = force x distance moved in direction of the force The SI unit of work is called the joule (J) and is the work done when the point of application of a force of 1 Newton (N) moves through 1 meter (m) in the direction of the force. Larger units used are the kilojoules (kJ) and the mega joule (MJ). Energy Anything which is...
  • Modelling Prices In Competitive Electricity Markets
    692 words
    Since the early '90's, the electrical energy sector has undergone profound and dramatic changes. More and more countries moved towards the deregulation of their energy sectors, from a regulated and monopolistic industry to one were the market forces of supply and demand determine the unit price of electricity. The first case of energy sector deregulation in Europe was recorded when the United Kingdom with the Electricity Act of 1990 created the Electricity Pool for England and Wales. Norway soon...
  • Electrical Energy
    1,111 words
    The energy that is used today comes from fossil fuels, which is a nonrenewable limited resource that will eventually be used up. Alternative energy sources such as solar, hydroelectric, geothermal and wind energies can be used, to conserve the planets limited natural resources. Alternative energy is the use of another energy without the burning of fossil fuels and break up on atoms. Solar energy can be used to operate cars and provide electricity for homes and businesses. Hydroelectric energy ca...

The blackout caused many problems all over the United States. Did someone know this was goi...
  • Development Of Hydroelectric Energy
    609 words
    Hydroelectricity is the electricity produced by harnessing the power of moving water. Hydroelectric energy is a renewable energy source dependent upon the hydrologic cycle of water, which involves evaporation, precipitation and the flow of water due to gravity. Canada has abundant water resources and a geography that provides many opportunities to produce low-cost energy. In fact, accessing the energy from flowing waters has played an important role in the economic and social development of Cana...
  • Current Passes Through The Coil
    760 words
    Loudspeakers - Consist of a circular permanent magnet surrounding a freely moving coil. The coil is attached to a cone-shaped, flexible diaphragm or speaker cone. - When current passes through the coil, magnetic forces act on the coil, causing it to move in or out depending on the direction of the current. - If AC current passes through the coil, it will move alternatively in and out as the current changes direction. The coil will therefore vibrate at the same frequency as AC current. Society ha...
  • Use Of Solar Energy
    2,984 words
    Introduction Our world has been in existence for billions of years and throughout all those years we have used the sun for basic energy needs. So why not be able to harness that energy and use it to power things like our homes or our cars? Many scientist have been developing alternate forms of energy called "Green Energy". Green power is the solution to creating a cleaner, sustainable energy system. Renewable energy -- power from the sun, wind, plants, and moving water -- is a natural way to mee...
