How Do Alternators Produce Electricity?


Alternators produce electricity by converting mechanical energy to electrical energy in form of alternating current. A number of alternators have rotating magnetic fields that drives the automotive and other forms of combustions engines. Other turbines like those in power stations are driven by steam turbines.
1 Additional Answer
Alternators produce electricity through an aluminium casing that is on the outer side and rotors and stators in the alternator. There are three sets of wounding that are wounded on the iron stator frame and each winding consists of seven coils that are basically made up of different loops. The most important parts of a rotor are two slip rings that act as a connector of the coil wire to the battery.
