ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION

 

Electricity is a very good and efficient solution for providing energy in any operating conditions. Today, in many cases, it is possible to talk about the local use of electricity, about small electrical devices directly supplied by their own electricity source. Sometimes, these small systems are provided with an integrated storage system (usually batteries) for a more energetically efficient and flexible solution. Small systems typically consist of a small single user, or even a single device, supplied locally by a dedicated electricity generator.
