Generators work by changing mechanical energy to electrical energy. It can be done by spinning

A diesel generator generally works in two parts. The first part is the diesel engine whitch works the same as any normal internal combustion piston engine, it has a out put shaft attached to the crank (the same as any car engine) which is conected to the actual generator. The generator is just a large alternator- the shaft of the alternator is driven by the diesel engine(usually no clutch is used). A governor is used between the alternator and the diesel engine so that when load is placed on the alternator (you plug a power tool in to the generator for example) the engine revs pickup to spin the shaft fast enough to produce sufficeint electricity.

For further reference look up the separate parts in wikipedia
-diesel engine
-Alternator
-governor valve
