Generator System Parts
The generator system of a machine, also known as the machinery charging system, is responsible for producing electrical power to operate the machinery electrical components and recharge the machinery battery.
The generator system typically consists of an alternator, a voltage regulator, and a battery. The alternator is driven by a belt connected to the machinery engine and produces electrical power as the engine rotates. The voltage regulator controls the electrical output of the alternator and ensures that the voltage and current produced are sufficient to power the machinery electrical components and recharge the battery.
The generator system of machinery is essential to the machinery operation, as it powers the machinery electrical components such as lights, radio, and air conditioning. It also recharges the machinery battery, which provides power to start the engine and operates the machinery electrical components when the engine is not running.
