10.1 Introduction

Electricity is generated in power houses. The source of energy which is converted into electrical energy could be potential energy of water, energy of high pressure steam, or gas. In an hydroelectric power house, say in Bhakra Dam power house, water head has been created by constructing a high-rise dam over the river Sutlej. The potential energy ...
