When most people think of the engine, they do not take into consideration the importance of the alternator. The alternator is one of a few indispensable auto performance parts that the engine cannot run without. The reason the engine simply cannot properly function without the alternator is because the alternator is where the powertrain derives power primarily.
Alternators are created for one thing and that is to convert the mechanical energy into an alternating current. How it works is the belt of the engine drives the shaft of the alternator. In doing so, the electricity is produced from the machines mechanical energy. After this takes place, the power begins to be channeled. With all of this said and done, the electricity is used to recharge the battery as well as power the vehicle’s electrical system.
