Forklift Alternators - A machine used in order to transform mechanical energy into electric energy is actually called an alternator. It can perform this function in the form of an electrical current. An AC electric generator could in essence also be called an alternator. Nonetheless, the word is normally utilized to refer to a small, rotating machine driven by internal combustion engines. Alternators that are placed in power stations and are powered by steam turbines are known as turbo-alternators. The majority of these machines make use of a rotating magnetic field but from time to time linear alternators are likewise used.
Whenever the magnetic field surrounding a conductor changes, a current is produced inside the conductor and this is how alternators produce their electrical energy. Often the rotor, which is a rotating magnet, turns within a stationary set of conductors wound in coils located on an iron core which is actually known as the stator. If the field cuts across the conductors, an induced electromagnetic field otherwise called EMF is produced as the mechanical input makes the rotor to turn. This rotating magnetic field generates an AC voltage in the stator windings. Normally, there are 3 sets of stator windings. These physically offset so that the rotating magnetic field induces 3 phase currents, displaced by one-third of a period with respect to each other.
"Brushless" alternators - these utilize slip rings and brushes together with a rotor winding or a permanent magnet to produce a magnetic field of current. Brushlees AC generators are usually located in larger devices like for example industrial sized lifting equipment. A rotor magnetic field may be produced by a stationary field winding with moving poles in the rotor. Automotive alternators usually use a rotor winding which allows control of the voltage generated by the alternator. It does this by changing the current in the rotor field winding. Permanent magnet devices avoid the loss because of the magnetizing current inside the rotor. These machines are limited in size due to the cost of the magnet material. The terminal voltage varies with the speed of the generator as the permanent magnet field is constant.
