A generator in a power plant converts rotating kinetic energy into electrical energy. So it is a generator
In order for Kinetic energy to be converted into electrical energy, the kinetic energy usually drives the rotation or oscillation of a magnet in close proximity to coiled wire.

A bar magnet can be moved up and down through the centre of a looped coil of wires. As the wire comes into contact with the magnetic field of the magnet, a current is induced in the wire. (see Left hand rule)

Likewise, a collection of magnets attached to a large prop shaft when rotated will induce a current in a large array of coiled wires which surround but do not touch the circled array of magnets.

Kinetic energy is essentially converted into electrical energy in most production of electricity. Oil, Gas, Coal or Nuclear energy are all used to heat water; the steam of which turns turbines and therefore the prop shaft. (Chemical energy-kinetic energy-electrical energy)
Through a generator shaft........ +++ I imagine the questioner knows that, but wants to what is on the shaft! An electrical generator is a set of coils of wire so arranged than when rotated they cut across a strong magnetic field, and it is this that induces the current in the windings, extracted by suitable means for feeding it to the circuit connected to the machine's output.
A generator does this by passing a rotating coil of wire through a magnetic field. Electric current is induced in the coil.

There is no "device" that is used to convert potential energy (PE) to kinetic energy (KE).

KE is energy of motion, for example, the energy the bowling ball has as it is falling toward your foot. The amount of PE the bowling ball had when it was motionless at some height above your head is approximately equal to the amount of KE the bowling ball has just before it lands on your foot.

# Which Device converts electrical energy from mechanical energy?

Modern electrical generators make use of Faraday's law to convert mechanical energy in the form of motion into electrical energy. Mechanical energy is used to turn large magnetic coiled in electrical wire, and as the magnets and thus magnetic field moves, an electrical current is induced in the wire producing electricity. The actual mechanical energy can be produced in a variety of ways, often by combustion of a fuel, utilizing flowing water, or heating water into steam that will push against a turbine. The reverse process of going from electrical energy to mechanical energy in an electric motor utilizes a similar process. The application of a current to a coiled wire will produce a magnetic field that will oppose the field of a nearby permanent magnet, resulting in a torque on the coil producing rotational mechanical energy. This rotational energy can later be converted into nearly any other form of mechanical energy by some other intermediary deice.

# How do you make a device that converts electrical energy into heat energy?

Simply cause an electric current to flow through a circuit element with resistance. Theoretically, all circuit elements, including wires have resistance, so every electric circuit makes heat. In practical terms, a circuit element can be introduced that has much higher resistance than the wire, called a resistor, so a large majority of the heat is created in this element. For example, in an incandescent light bulb, a toaster, and some electric space heaters, the resistor is a wire made of a different metal and diameter than the other wires in the circuit, so heat is made in this wire and not (significantly) in the power chord that goes to the wall and other the other wires and the switch that connect the chord to the heating element.
