Alternator Rotor Manufacturer
Alternator rotor, also known as the alternator armature, is a crucial component of an alternator.
The alternator is responsible for converting mechanical energy into electrical energy in a vehicle. The rotor is the rotating part of the alternator that sits inside the stator, which is the stationary part.
The main function of the alternator rotor is to generate a rotating magnetic field, which interacts with the stationary stator windings to produce electrical current. It consists of a shaft, a core made of laminated iron, and copper windings wrapped around the core.
When the engine runs, a belt connected to the engine’s crankshaft drives the alternator rotor, causing it to spin. As the rotor rotates, it generates a magnetic field due to the electromagnetic properties of the copper windings. This magnetic field induces an alternating current (AC) in the stator windings, which is then converted into direct current (DC) by the rectifier inside the alternator.
In simpler terms, the alternator rotor is like the heart of the alternator, responsible for creating the electrical power needed to charge the vehicle’s battery and supply electricity to various electrical systems while the engine is running.
