Dear student 
Generators are basically coils of electric conductors, normally copper wire, that are tightly wound onto a metal core and are mounted to turn around inside an exhibit of large magnets. An electric conductor moves through a magnetic field, the magnetism will interface with the electrons in the conductor to induce a flow of electrical current inside it.
An electric generator works on the principle of Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction. Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction states that “whenever a current carrying conductor are placed in the magnetic field, then a flux is induces in the circuit due to which a current start to flow in the rotor ,
An electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy obtained from an external source into electrical energy as the output. ... Faraday discovered that the above flow of electric charges could be induced by moving an electrical conductor, such as a wire that contains electric charges, in a magnetic field.
