- The equipment uses combustion to induce a rotating movement and transfers that movement to a generator.
- ICGS equipment is classified based on the primary fuel it uses: diesel, gas, heavy fuel oil (HFO), and biodiesel. Rated power is also used as a measurement for this equipment.
• A SWTG system transforms primary energy from wind flow into electrical alternating current (AC).
- Kinetic energy is transferred from the movement of the air flow into the blades' rotation through momentum variation that reduces wind speed. The low-speed, high-momentum rotation movement is converted into a high momenta rotation in the generator, producing power.
• PV modules: "Photovoltaic" literally means "electricity (voltaic) from light (photo)." PV power is a semi-conductor and often silicon-based technology that directly converts light energy into an electric current that can be used immediately or stored for later use.
• SHFs use hydro turbines to convert hydrostatic potential energy collected by a dam into rotational kinetic energy through the movement of water over blades.
• Rotational energy is transferred through a concentric shaft to a multi-pole rotor that generates AC.
• SHFs' operational margin varies according to the availability of water flow and pressure, so power generation depends on water supply. The estimated capacity factor of small hydro stations is X percent, lower than the capacity factor of hydro facilities run on a river, which is estimated at X percent.
