generator:source generator:method Description Generator types
2020 stBN powergensource nuclear.svg

nuclear

fission Generators using fission to produce heat, steam and then electricity PWR, BWR-1, BWR-6, RBMK-1000, RBMK-1500, VVER, CANDU, CPR-1000, EPR
fusion Generators using nuclear fusion to produce heat and then electricity tokamak, stellarator, ICF, cold-fusion

wind

wind_turbine Wind turbine horizontal_axis, vertical_axis
2020 stBN powergensource water.svg

hydro

water-storage Generator producing electricity with turbines fed by water coming from a lake behind a dam.
Note: Power plants in Switzerland must have a storage capacity of at least 25% of the average expected winter production, otherwise they are generator:method=run-of-the-river plants.
francis_turbine, kaplan_turbine, pelton_turbine
water-pumped-storage Generator producing electricity like generator:method=water-storage and additionaly able to pump water from a lower lake to the storage lake when needed. francis_turbine
run-of-the-river Generator producing electricity with turbine using stream of a river (with no storage dam)
Note: Power plants in Switzerland having storage dams with a capacity less than 25% of the average expected winter production are generator:method=run-of-the-river plants.
