Tech Tip: Relationship Between Alternator and Batteries

Posted

 From Delco Remy

The vehicle charging system is comprised of three components:

1.the alternator, 

2.the batteries 

3. the cables that connect them all together. 

Each of these plays an important role in creating a healthy charging system. And how well one component performs is dependent on the strength of the other components.

In our latest Tech Tip video, we examine the relationship between the alternator and the batteries. Watch our tech tip video to learn more about:


• How batteries act as a variable resister—and why this is important.

• The alternator’s main job of maintaining a charge on the batteries.

• What is included in an effective charging system design.

• What to do when a low voltage situation occurs.
