What are non-conventional (renewable) Electrical Energy Sources?
Yes, Electrical Energy could be produced through renewable sources too. Conversion of limitless energy from the sun into usable electric energy through photovoltaic energy conversion is achieved by using solar cells. Commercially, electricity is also being generated from renewable energy sources such as wind, biomass, geothermal, tidal, and wave sources. Wind energy is converted into electrical form through a wind turbine coupled to an electrical generator. Geothermal power generation converts energy contained in hot rocks into electricity by using water to absorb heat from rocks and transport it to the earth’s surface, where it is converted into electric energy through turbine generators. The majority of biomass electricity is generated using a steam cycle where biomass material is first converted into steam in a boiler; the resultant steam is then used to turn a turbine connected to a generator. Tide is a periodic rise and fall of the water level of sea which are carried by the actio
