Since people began to use electricity to find the existence of light at night, people's demand for electricity has gradually grown, coupled with the advent of the intelligent era, various electrical and electronic products came into being, and people's demand for electricity has grown rapidly. From the invention of the first real battery to the current multiple power generation methods, the power generation methods are no longer limited to the traditional form but also develop in the direction of intelligence, clean energy, diversification, and energy saving. With the development of a variety of power generation methods, the power supply structure has been continuously adjusted, the optimization level of thermal power has been improved, the development of hydropower has been increased, the construction of the power grid has been continuously strengthened, the achievements of power environmental protection have been very significant, and the power equipment technology has also been continuously improved.

Types of Power Generation Methods



Hydropower is the use of water that has not been converted into the mechanical energy of the water wheel, and then the mechanical energy is used to drive the generator to provide electric energy, the use of water energy, a renewable clean energy, is very conducive to environmental protection, and the efficiency of hydropower is very high, so the cost is very low, easy to adjust. However, due to the influence of natural conditions, it is often related to the abundance of water-level resources that need to be comprehensively utilized.


Thermal Power Generation

Thermal power generation refers to the conversion of chemical energy into heat energy, which is absorbed by water into water vapor, converts heat energy into mechanical energy, and finally converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. It is one of the main modes of electricity production at present, which can provide a large amount of electricity for society and industry, and provide necessary energy for our life and economic development. It can also promote the development of related industries such as coal and natural gas. Thermal power generation is not affected by the season, and power generation operations can be carried out throughout the year, which can ensure the power supply throughout the year. Thermal power generation can flexibly respond to different power needs, and flexibly adjust the power generation according to the needs of the market. However, thermal power generation will produce a large number of harmful gases, which will bring pollution to the environment; There is also the need to consume a large amount of renewable resources, which leads to the depletion of resources.


Solar Power Generation

In recent years, the wide application of photovoltaic technology has met people's electricity needs very well, using solar energy to convert into electricity, and this efficient light conversion rate makes this clean and sustainable renewable energy have great use. Coupled with the development of the semiconductor manufacturing industry, the combination of photovoltaic technology and semiconductors has contributed to the production of many solar appliances, which are very diverse, their production cost is low, and the cost of maintenance and operation is also very low, which can save costs for people and meet people's daily power needs. Taking Huawei's micro solar as an example, the intelligent cloud PV system can be monitored, controlled, managed, operated, and maintained promptly, and users can also be provided with suggestions regularly.



In general, due to the development of technology and the advent of the intelligent era, the power generation mode has also moved from the traditional power generation mode to the new power generation mode, with clean energy as the main technology, power generation can greatly protect our environment, but also improve the efficiency of power generation, to meet people's electricity needs. The main trend in future power generation technology is clean energy, which will increasingly focus on sustainability, that is, providing a long-term stable power supply while reducing the environmental impact. At the same time, there will also be a trend towards storing energy to meet the changes in the timing and quantity of energy supply demand, thereby improving energy efficiency.
