alternator control mechanism Answered

im planning for a project on alternator control mechanisms. can anyone provide me relevant ideas about the topic?


Do you mean car alternators, or proper ones.

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.
