Well, a pure sine wave can only be produced as a pure sine wave. If it was modified to begin with, it would never be a pure sine wave. However, an actual generator should be supplying pure sine wave output, while something such as an inverter would be producing a modified sine wave.

What is the difference between transformer and generator and motor?

A transformer converts voltage and current to different values, but keeps input power equivalent to output power (minus some small value of losses). Thus the input to a transformer is electric energy, and the output is electric energy of about the same magnitude. A generator takes kinetic energy and converts it into electric energy. A motor takes electric energy and converts it into kinetic energy.

What happens to the electricity not used from a generator?

If there is no load connected to the output there is no electron flow so the generator will be idle and there is actually no current flow until a load is connected to the output.

Can a small generator power an electric motor?

If the output power of the generator matches the required input power of the motor - sure.

Why there is no power output on your generator?

What do you mean?Are you getting zero power as output or less than the rated output power?If your output power is less than the rated then, you will have to see the losses that occur in the generator itself otherwise there must be losses in the prime-mover of the generator!! Let's assume that you are getting zero output power then, these might be the reasons. 1. Failure of the prime-mover( Less than the rated speed of rotation of generator) 2. Some faults in the prime-mover.(viz. broken/bent shaft & other mech. problems) 3. Faults that occur in the generator itself ( short circuit of conductors/windings,) 4. Faulty design of generator I would suggest you to get your generator checked by an expert. Reply me if you are satisfied!!
