The primary electromagnetic generator (Faraday disk) was invented by a British scientist, Michael Faraday in 1831. A DC generator is an electrical device used to generate electrical energy. The main function of this device is to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. There are several types of mechanical energy sources available such as manual cranks, internal combustion engines, water turbines, and gas and steam turbines. The generator provides power to all electric power grids. The reverse function of the generator can be done by electric motor. The main function of the engine is to convert electrical energy into mechanical. Motors, as well as generators, have similar features. This article covers an overview of DC generators.

A DC generator produces direct energy based on the fundamental principle of Faraday's laws of electromagnetic induction. According to these laws, when a conductor moves in a magnetic field, it cuts off the strength of magnetic lines, through which the e.mf is induced in the conductor.
