Best Answer

As its name suggests, a generator generates electricity. Michael Faraday'sdiscovery of electromagnetic induction demonstrated a way to construct a simple generator, but there was little need for such a device until commercial technologies that used electricity, such as lights, appeared. The earliest commercial uses of electricity, such as telegraphy, arc lighting systems, and metal electroplating used batteries as their power source. This was a very expensive way of generating electricity.

What is the difference between a seperately excited DC generator and DC shunt generator?

The difference between a separately excited DC generator and a Shunt DC generator is that for a separately excited Dc generator , the excitation field winding is supplied by an external source different from that supplying the armature while for shunt generator, the excitation field windind is connected in series with the armature and supplied by a single source.
