Generator of alternating current that is used especially in the automobile industry (powering electrical devices) and in power houses.
Metal casing that houses the magnetic field.
Rod that is rotated by the pulley, which in turn causes the claw-pole rotor to rotate.
Mechanical unit integrated with the shaft; it is rotated by a belt that is connected to an engine.
Insulated conductor collars that are connected to the coil of the field; they gather the induced alternating electric current.
Conductive parts that rub against the collector rings and transmit the current produced by the alternator to an outside circuit.
Conductive wire on the cylinder rotor; when exposed to an excitation current, it creates a magnetic field.
Fixed cylinder with a winding; the rotor turns within it to produce the electric current.
Moving cylindrical part made up of a field winding between two pole shoes; it creates the rotating magnetic field required to operate the alternator.
Conductive wire on the armature; the rotor moves in front of it to produce an alternating current.
Device with blades that circulates air to cool the alternator.
