The stator on a generator is the stationary part that the generator rotor spins around inside of.

In a generator, the stator of the generator converts the rotating magnetic field to electric current.

In fluid powered devices, the stator guides the flow of fluid to or from the rotating part of the system.

The stator and rotor both are the parts of the generator.

The significant difference between the rotor and the stator of the generator is that the rotor is the rotating part of the generator whereas the stator is the stationary part of the generator.

Motors have stators and rotors as well and the same is true for the motors as is for generators.

A generator is basically a motor in reverse that creates the electricity from another energy source spinning the stator.

The motor then uses the electricity from the generator to cause the motor to spin.

A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy, while a motor does the opposite - it converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.

Both devices work because of electromagnetic induction, which is when a voltage is induced by a changing magnetic field.
