How a Car Alternator Works
An alternator is an electrical generator that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy in the form of alternating current. In principle, any AC electrical generator can be called an alternator, but usually the term refers to small rotating machines driven by automotive and other internal combustion engines. An alternator that uses a permanent magnet for its magnetic field is called a magneto. Alternators in power stations driven by steam turbines are called turbo-alternators. Alternating current generating systems were known in simple forms from the discovery of the magnetic induction of electric current in the s.

You may think your battery is powering all things electrical in your car, be it your windshield wipers, headlights or radio. The alternator is a generator whose purpose is to distribute electricity to the car and recharge the battery. About the size of a coconut, the alternator is generally mounted to the front of the engine and has a belt running around it. The components of an alternator are geared toward providing the right type and right amount of power to the vehicle. The rotor and stator are the electricity-producing components of an alternator. The movement of the magnets over the wiring is what ultimately creates electricity.
An engine's alternator maintains the voltage to the car's battery, which powers the lights, heater and other accessories. It is analogous to a generator as it produces electricity through a turbine-like system. The volt battery carries only enough charge to initially start the car. Without an alternator, the battery would have to be recharged manually every time you needed to restart the car. An alternator has three main components, each playing a specific role to keep the car's battery fully charged. The rotor and stator of an alternator are a belt-driven group of magnets inside copper wiring that creates a magnetic field. The belt is driven by a pulley connecting to the engine, allowing the rotor to spin at a high speed, creating a magnetic field.

Stator and Rotor — The stator and rotor work together to turn mechanical energy into electricity. The stator includes bundles of tightly wound copper wire called windings. As the magnets spin inside the copper windings an alternating current is generated. Diodes — The diodes perform two key functions within the alternator. They transform the alternating current into direct current which is used to charge your car's battery.
Хейл крепче обхватил Сьюзан и шепнул ей на ухо: - Стратмор столкнул его вниз, клянусь. - Она не клюнет на твою тактику разделяй и властвуй, - сказал Стратмор, подходя еще ближе. - Отпусти. - Чатрукьян был совсем мальчишка. Ради всего святого, зачем вы это сделали. Чтобы скрыть свою маленькую тайну.
- Итак, вы полагаете, что Северная Дакота - реальное лицо. - Боюсь, что. И мы должны его найти. Найти тихо. Если он почует, что мы идем по его следу, все будет кончено. Теперь Сьюзан точно знала, зачем ее вызвал Стратмор.
Сегодня мой брат Клаус нанял девушку, очень красивую. С рыжими волосами. Я тоже хочу. На завтрашний день, пожалуйста. - Ваш брат Клаус приходил к нам? - Женщина вдруг оживилась, словно говорила со старым знакомым. - Да.
