Default So how do jet aircraft generate electricity?

I would imagine prop driven planes have an alternator of sorts, but how do jet aircrafts generate power to drive ancillary devices?

A generator was my first guess, but the few occasions I've been on smaller private jets I had never heard them.

Just wondering.

Default the turbines drive generators

same principle as many of the new cruise ship that use electric pods that run off gas turbine generators.
