What are the different types of Generators used to produce electrical power?

What are the different types of generators used to produce electricity? We were told that there are 6 types of them. Please answer, i need it ASAP! Thank you very much.

1. The Famous electrostatic generators are friction machines
a) Holtz, and Wimshurst generators
b) Van de Graaff generators
For a few more(see ref below)
2. Faraday disk
3. Dynamo
4. Alternator
5. Asynchronous or induction singly-fed generator, the doubly-fed generator, or the brushless wound-rotor doubly-fed generator
6. MDH – magnetohydrodynamic generator
I hope it helps
