How Does a Car Dynamo Work?


A car dynamo works through the rotation of tightly wound fine wires in a magnetic field which is maintained by a fixed arrangement of magnets encompassing the spinning windings of wire. The electricity produced depends on the speed at which the wires spin and the strength of the magnetic field.
