Move a wire through a magnetic field and it will create an electric current.
So found Faraday and Henry in experiments a century ago and ever since man has create [sic] electricity by this method.
Modern generators thus require, as generators always have, two parts; one moving (the rotor) and another stationary (the stator).
It is the function of the latter to create the magnetic field in which can move the wires of the rotor.
