There are literally entire books written on this, so a single post wouldn't be sufficient to really cover it. Have you done any research on your own? Here's a good place to start:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_cell

Not trying to be unhelpful, but as of now you're being far too general. It took me several weeks of Gen Chem just to cover the basics, so read up and if you don't understand something specific feel free to post a question about that.
