How alternators workAn alternator is an a.c. motor in reverse; the coils of the armature (the part that rotates) cuts through the magnetic field of the stator (the part that is stationary, which is what "stator" means). A current is produced whenever a wire cuts through a magnetic field; the amount of current depends upon the strength of the field and the speed of the wire. This current is coupled out of the armature by two copper rings and a pair of brushes. For automobiles, the a.c. (alternating) current is converted to d.c. (direct current) by rectifiers (also called diodes).

ERROR: A voltage is applied to the rotor winding by way of the slip rings. This creates an electro magnet who's field cuts across the stator windings. The stator winding voltage is an alternating current that is retified and regulated and is outputed out at the terminal on the back of the alternator. This is exactly the reverse of the above. If the above were true the brushes would smoke when a high current passed through them

The stator is the stationary winding assembly that makes the magnetic field inside the alternator. It is this magnetic field that the armature rotates in generating the electricity.

The stator on an alternator is used to generate a magnetic field. This is a large factor in the production of electricity.

The magnetic field will have no effect on a stationary electric charge. ( this means that the magnetic field is also stationary. ) If the charge is moving , relative to the magnetic field then there might be an effect, but the size and direction of the effect will depend on the direction of the electric charge as it moves through the field. If the charge is moving parallel to the field there will be no effect on it. If the charge is moving at right angles to the field then it will experience a force that is mutually orthogonal to the field and direction of the motion. You really need diagrams to properly explain this

1) Rotating armature alternator, rotates in stationary magnetic field. 2) Rotating field alternator, the magnetic field is rotating.

User Avatar

as while designing alternator we have to consider two ckt. i.e. electrical ckt.& magnetic ckt. and electrical ckt.is designing by considering current & magnetic by volt.thats why rating is in kva.

Their magnetic properties disappear after the magnetic field is removed

A Rotor is a mechanism in the alternator that is driven by the pulley belt from the engine.which creates a magnetic field which causes voltage.Answer.The rotor does not 'create' a magnetic field. The emf induced in the stator winding is due to the residual magnetic flux of the rotor which cuts the stator windings as the rotor rotates.

Magnetic bracelets work according to the placebo effect. I f you think they work then they do. Magnetic bracelets are harmless but no serious scientific study has revealed any effect other than the (important) placebo effect.

A Scientist called Hans Christian Oersted is the inventor of the magnetic effect of the electric current. The Scientist who was Danish is the one who discovered the magnetic effect of the electric current.Comment Oersted didn't 'invent' this effect; he is credited with 'discovering' it. The effect was present long before it was discovered!

All materials are magnetized when placed in the magnetic field . The material magnetized by the effect of a magnetic field is called magnetic permeability.

What causes it's magnetic field is the dynamo effect.

It is a macroscopic theory. Their theoretical values are not equal to the experimental values. The classical theory cannot explain the photoelectric effect,compton effect,magnetic properties briefly..... it obeys the classical mechanics. it does not briefly explain the atoms internal parts . hence it is rectified by quantum physics....!

Hi, if you really wanna reduce magnetic fringing effect, then you have to keep + side in water for two days and then can have a test of effect streangth, it will be reduced to 50%.

Check voltage with a voltmeter at the battery With engine running readings should be 13.8-14.2 With engine running hold a screw driver to the back of the alternator, if there is no magnetic field, the alternator is bad.
