Wind turbines are great examples of machines that convert mechanical energy into electricity. Electrodynamic Energy Converter Electrodynamic energy converters capture the energy generated by the interactions between coils and permanent magnets. Used in variety of itemswhich move relative to one another. Thermoelectric A Thermoelectric energy – harvesting system uses any temperature difference between two surfaces to convert it into usable energy – a phenomenon known as "the thermoelectric effect." Piezoelectric Electric charge accumulates in some solid materials like crystals, some ceramics, and even biological matter such as bone, DNA and various proteins when mechanical stress is applied. The word piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure.
