Oscillator- Another important circuit like an amplifier in electronics. It is the circuit which generates alternating voltage. For this, it requires direct current ( d.c. ) power supply.Purpose of an oscillator-Sinusoidal or non sinusoidal waveform of low or high frequency can be generated by an oscillator.Applications of an oscillator-Oscillator is widely used in radio transmitter and receiver, TV transmitter and receiver, audio generator, RF generator, waveform generator, function generator, telemetering, in radio telephony as carrier, in radio telegraphy, in induction heating, in dielectric heating, in remote control, in digital clock, To produce ultrasonic waves, To produce accurate time base and many other electronic equipments.

There is no similarity between the two objects.

is the speed of the generator

The basic difference between a motor and a generator is that a motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy while a generator converts mechanical energy into electrical.

'Alternator' is simply another name for an a.c. generator.
