What is the alternator?
The alternator works by turning mechanical energy into electrical energy. When your engine is on, it powers a drive belt that rests on a pulley attached to the alternator. The pulley turns the alternator's rotor shaft, which spins a set of magnets around a coil.
What are the components of the alternator?
An alternator is consists of four parts, but these are the main components and their functions:
1. Rotor and stator
The rotor and stator are the electricity-producing components of an alternator. The rotor, a cylindrical piece surrounded in magnets, spins inside of the stator, which holds a fixed set of conductive copper wiring. The movement of the magnets over the wiring is what ultimately creates electricity.
2. Voltage regulator
The voltage regulator oversees the power the alternator makes. It monitors the level of voltage that is output to the battery and delivers power to the rest of the vehicle.
3. Diode rectifier
The diode rectifier converts the voltage from the alternator into a form that can be used by the battery to recharge.
4. Cooling fan
Alternators give off a lot of heat and need to be cooled to operate efficiently. While they’re built with vents and aluminum casing to better release heat, they’re also equipped with rotating fans for added cooling. New alternator models have internal cooling fans, whereas older versions tend to have external fan blades.
7 Signs of a Failing Alternator:
1. Dim or Overly Bright Lights.
2. Dead Battery.
3. Slow or Malfunctioning Accessories.
4. Trouble Starting or Frequent Stalling.
5. Growling or Whining Noises. ...
6. Smell of Burning Rubber or Wires.
7. Battery Warning Light on Dash.
What happens when alternator goes out?
A bad alternator will result in a discharged (dead) battery and cause a vehicle to not start or run, Alternators are designed to maintain a battery's charge, not to recharge a dead battery. Your alternator's job is to maintain a consistent charge on your battery. Draining your car's battery is not advised.
Your alternator is arguably one of the most important parts of your engine.Without it, your battery would quickly run out of juice, leaving you stranded.
