The Role of Turbines in Power Generation
Large scale electrical energy production largely depends on the use of turbines. Nearly all of the world's power that is supplied to a major grid is produced from turbines.  From steam turbines used at coal-burning electricity plants to liquid water turbines used at dams, turbines are versatile and can be used in a number of applications.  There are also gas turbines that combust natural gas or diesel fuel to operate turbines in remote locations or where a large backup power supply is required.

A turbine is a simple device that uses flowing fluids to produce electrical energy.
