What is the function of drive belt tensioner and drive belt?
A Drive Belt is used to drive accessories installed on a car engine, such as an alternator, water pump, power steering pump, air conditioner compressor, etc. Sometimes a serpentine belt could also be called a "drive belt" or "accessories belt". Some cars have a single serpentine belt running all the accessories, other cars may have two or more drive belts.

Is a serpentine belt the same thing as a generator drive belt?
No, the serpentine belt is used to drive more than one thing and tension is automatically adjust by way of a spring loaded idler pulley. Normally it will drive the alternator, power steering pump, & A/C compressor. A drive belt normally drives only one thing and tension is manually adjusted. A serpentine belt is wider that a drive belt and is not a V-Belt like a drive belt.

Is a serpentine belt and drive belt one in the same?
Technically,Yes. But realistically no. They are both drive belts, but the term drive belt is normally what is referred to as a non-serpentine belt. This term is used to distinguish between the two type belts. A drive belt tension must be adjusted manually, whereas a serpentine belt tension is controlled by a tensioner.
