You can not use specific time period for building the present perfect tense. such as yesterday, one year ago, last week, when I was a child, etc.

The present perfect tense is a rather important tense in English, but it gives speakers of some languages a difficult time. The present perfect is often used for an action that started at some time in the past and is still continuing now.

Can any one explain it with an example of present perfect tense in a sentence?

The present perfect denotes action that began in the past but which continues up to the present. This tense is formed by preceding the past participle of the verb with “has” or “have” depending on whether the subject is singular or plural: “She has learned her lessons well.” “We have waited for nine years.”

This is in contrast to the past perfect, which denotes action that was completed in the past before another action took place. This tense is formed by preceding the past participle with “had” regardless of whether the subject is singular or plural: “The son squandered the fortune that his father had accumulated during his entire working life.” “By the time he arrived, his teammates had left the stadium.”
