Car alternators are a common source of electric current in most cars on the road today. The function of the stator is to convert mechanical energy that’s produced by the engine into electric energy.
Now that you know how to test the rotor and regulator, it’s time to get down to business with the stator.
Alternators are typically powered by the crankshaft, which is turned by the engine. They also include a rotor, which has windings within it, and a rectifier to convert the electricity produced into direct current, or DC power.
The alternator stator wire is used to transfer electrical charges from the battery to the alternator.
Alternator Stator Winding Types
Alternator stator windings can be classified in three main types:
