Electrical Generation / Distribution

Now how do we get those jittery electrons that are quite content just to stay around the same atom all day to actually get out and see the world and go somewhere and actually do some work.

The machine that actually kicks the electrons butt and gets them moving is called an electrical generator. Magnetism has an effect on electrons which causes them to be on the move when passing through a magnetic field. Electric generators are essentially coils of electric conductors that are tightly wound onto a metal core and are mounted to spin around inside an array of large magnets.  That conductor coil / core is called an armature that is on a shaft that spins at high speeds through an magnetic field which essentially gets all those electrons moving.

All generators work on the same principal, no matter what method or fuel is used in power generation, electricity is generated by being able to turn a turbine on a generator. An electric generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. 

Power Distribution

The generator creates a movement of electrons which is what electricity really is. It can be balancing act to produce enough electricity to meet demand while at the same time not to produce too much electricity.
