Generators as we know them today can trace their roots to Michael Faraday, who was born September 22, 1791, who did groundbreaking research in the study of electricity. In 1831, Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction, the principle behind the electric transformer and generator. This discovery was crucial in allowing electricity to be transformed from a curiosity into a powerful new technology.
A brilliant scientist, Faraday studied new compounds of chlorine and carbon, discovered benzene, experimented with the liquification of gases, and developed an early prototype of the Bunsen burner.
He is credited with mainstreaming terminology such as “anode”, “cathode”, “electrode” and “ion”. Faraday ultimately became the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, an organization for scientific education and research, a lifetime position.
