  2. 2. What are power plants? A power plant is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power Also called generating station, power station, or powerhouse The most important component in power stations is a generator, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power by creating relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely depending on price, availability and technology.
