Do you mean car alternators, or proper ones.

not car alternator. normal alternators

REAL engineering. What have you read around the subject ? "Electric Machines" by Slemon and Straughan is my first port of call.

Well I can tell you need about 2 Hp for every Hp of output.

But without a better description in your question not much.


thanks for the valuable information. its a project to develop a control mechanism, measure the zeroes and poles for a regular alternator.

If a real alternator did that, it would melt.
