An alternator is the device that provides the electrical power to all the systems in your vehicle. It is attached to your engine (internal combustion) and powered by a belt attached to the vehicle’s crankshaft. When you start your car, the initial electricity to power the starter motor and other equipment is provided by the battery. However, there is insufficient power in a standard car battery to continue to run all the electrics when you drive, so this is the job of the alternator. The alternator provides power to the electrics while the engine is running, and at the same time it replenishes the charge in the battery. In the past, the alternator was known as the dynamo or the generator – in fact they all do the same thing in slightly different ways.
There are three major parts to an alternator, they are called the stator, the rotor and the rectifier. The rotor (an electro–magnet) rotates within the stator (a wire coil) to produce alternating current (AC). AC is the type of power you use in your house for lighting and running your electrical equipment. Modern cars operate on direct current (DC), so the rectifier’s job is to change the AC to the DC that your car and your battery needs. If any of the parts ceases to function properly your alternator will not generate power, and you may become aware of your battery running down or your car failing to start. It may all sound complicated, but the skilled AutoMend mechanics in Totternhoe know exactly what to do to put low battery power problems right. You can rely on them to give you sound advice, such as whether an alternator repair is possible, or if a replacement alternator will be needed, or even if you have a battery problem rather than a faulty alternator.
