Generators

Each and every car generator is surrounded by its own magnetic field – which is perfectly maintained by a blanket of electromagnets. All generators function in order to generate electricity; and do so by rotating a large number of tightly wound wires which are contained and move within the specific magnetic field. The electricity that each generator produces is entirely determined by the speed by which these wires rotate and rub off each other.

The speed of the rotation of these wires is controlled by the car engine. The rotation of the wires within the generator bounces off and affects the engine by weaving through the “belts and pulleys” which can be found within all engines. In this way, the power of the generator is directly linked to the speed and functioning of the specific engine. In easier terms, the engine triggers the generator to kick into action.

There are three parts that constitute a car generator in its entirety. These are listed as follows: the ground, the field and the armature. The “ground” part functions as a way to keep the whole process safe; stop the generator from exceeding a specific voltage. The “armature” is effectively the part of every generator that provides the outlet for the power that it has succeeded in generating. Last but not least, the “field” part is what feeds power to those electromagnets that were spoken of – the ones that make up the generator’s magnetic field.

The regulator is a crucial component of the generator. Basically, the regulator is what maintains the voltage that is conjured by the generator, so that it stays at a normal level. This process is made possible by controlling the power of the magnetic field that surrounds the rotating wires.

The alternating current which is created by the car generator (by the spinning of the wires) needs to be converted – for the very simple reason that the car’s other devices, such as the headlights, are only operational in what is known as direct current. The commutator is the component of the generator that allows for the conversion of the alternating current to direct current
