How often would you change an alternator for a Ford Taurus?

As often as the alternator fails... ;)The alternator is not a 'consumable' type of part that requires routine maintenance/replacement - like a serpentine belt, brake pads, etc.Many repair shops and auto parts stores offer inexpensive or free alternator & battery testing.Be sure to test before replacing!NOTE: it is a little known fact that a weak or failing battery is a major contributor to premature alternator death. Any battery that is 4 years old is a prime candidate for replacement.See "Related Questions" below for information on how-to replace Taurus / Sable alternators

Can you suggest a circuit diagram for voltage regulation of 3 phase permanent magnet alternator for a constant output 230volts?

The normal method for controlling output of an alternator is to vary the field current. In a PM alternator, there would be no field windings to control. The only way I could think of would be to vary the speed of rotation. This might work if the output was rectified (DC), but would be a problem if the output is AC, since the frequency would also change. I have not seen a PM alternator per se. Unusual.
