Michael Faraday invented electrical generators. While he taught a class he announced to the class, "No relationship exists between electricity and magnetism." He laid a wire across a compass, connected it to a battery, and the pointer did not move.After class a few students looked at the experiment. They moved the wire. They reconnected the battery. The needle moved.

Mr Faraday then thought if electricity through a wire can make a magnet move, perhaps it is possible to make a wire moving through a magnetic field produce electricity. He build a little device and produced a spark. He produced the first generator.

Thomas Edison hired Telsa at General Electric and they greatly improved the efficiency of Faraday's generator and made it a commercial success.

Where was first generator build?

The first generators of electricity were not electrodynamic as today's machines, but they were based on electrostatic principles. Long before electrodynamic generators were invented, electrostatic machines and devices had their place in science. Due to their principle of operation, electrostatic generators produce high voltage, but low currents. The output is always a unipolar static voltage. Depending from the used materials, it may be positve or negative.
