In electricity generation, an electrical generator is a device that
converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. The reverse
conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy is done by a
motor; motors and generators have many similarities. A generator
forces electric charges to move through an external electrical circuit,
but it does not create electricity or charge, which is already present in
the wire of its windings. It is somewhat analogous to a water pump,
which creates a flow of water but does not create the water inside.
