In general the difference between series and shunt (or parallel) is that series is like a string of pearls, each one receives from a leading source and sends directly to a draining target (the current has to flow equally through all).
Parallel however is like a railroad track in that the source is one rail and the drain is the other rail with each of the ties pulling from one and pushing into the other regardless of what any of the other "ties" are doing (each has a completely separate current flow from the others).
In terms of regulation a series regulator would have to "block" some of the power going through it to the load in order to regulate it. A shunt or parallel regulator would have to "drop" or waste enough of the limited available power to restrict what would be left available to the load (or loads).
Hope this overview helps
Assuming you mean the voltage regulator. Chrysler products of that era used the "One wire system". The voltage regulator is integral to the alternator.
So does that mean my alternator is bad but I just bought two of them
Ask your question again because I believe you mean a starter. I've never seen anyone start a voltage regulator.
YOU MEAN THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR? The voltage regulator is basically a gatekeeper that will shut off the flow of juice to your battery if the voltage goes above a certain level, usually 14.5 volts. This keeps your battery from getting overcharged and cooked. They call it an external voltage regulator nowdays because newer alternators have them built into the alternator unit itself
Do you mean rheostat for brightness control of dash lights? Usually in the dimmer control switch Voltage regulator for engine operation--inside the alternator
A: that is true for less current a divider is OK it has to do with the series resistance and loading if the loading is forever fixed and the source is also fixed at a value then a divider can be used no matter what the current is.
Voltage regulator is defective. Have it replaced or this will ruin your battery.
PQ are voltage regulator chips for protection that ground voltage if short circuit is detected. Don't know what is PD
The voltage light coming on indicates a problem. The system has determined that the voltage has become either too high or too low. This is most commonly a bad alternator or regulator.
sounds like your alternator or voltage regulator is going out most auto zones can test them for free
Check with a voltmeter connected to the battery Voltage with engine running should be approx. 13.8-14.2 volts- above this could be a defective voltage regulator
In all probability the alternator is not charging as it should. It could be from a bad voltage regulator or the alternator being defective.
A regulator holds something (e.g. voltage, current) in a circuit constant (aka regulates it), that otherwise would not stay constant as the circuit operates. Keeping this constant is critical to proper operation of the circuit, thus the need for its regulation.
By devices, assume you mean resistances. When you add more R to a series ckt, I decreases.
All cars have a battery make the electrical components function. The charging system consists of a battery,starter an alternator and a voltage regulator. The battery turns the starter over causing the engine to run. As the engine is running the alternator produces electricityto keep it running. The voltage regulator keeps the current regulated so that the battery does not overcharge. ok, the forst answer was nearly correct except the starter motor is not part of the charging systm. the charging sytem consists of, the battery, the alternator,or generator,and thevoltage regulator. the voltage regulator is sometimes built into the alternator on newer cars ,where as they all used to be an extra equipment bolted onto firewall or inside fender

No. A d.c. 'shunt' motor is one whose stator's field windings are connected in parallel with its rotor windings ('shunt' is simply an archic term for 'parallel'); it does not mean that the rotor can function without brushes.
You might consider a resistive voltage-divider, using two resistors (tap output from between them), or using a voltage regulator circuit that you can adjust with precision for your purpose (e.g., LM340), depending upon whether you mean DC or AC voltage and what size load you might be servicing. For a voltage divider, check the wikipedia page for how to calculate the ratio of resistors.
The mean load voltage, in other words the average voltage, is zero in an ac system.
The voltage sign is V which mean volt
the device oprates on the minimum voltage. in this voltage is called threshold voltage.
Check the voltage level from the alternator. Overvoltage is about the only thing that can "fry" a battery. If the voltage is much above 14.5 V, the regulator INSIDE the alternator has failed. The only choice is to replace the alternator.
When your battery gage reads high, it means that your voltage regulator is shot. Your voltage is too high. You are about to wreck your battery and some of your electronics. You are facing an extremely expensive repair job if you do not get a fairly inexpensive part fixed.
The Charging system includes the alternator, either an internal or external voltage regulator, a charge indicator, the battery, a fusible link, and the wiring between all of the components.
