An alternator is an electrical machine designed to convert mechanical energy into alternating current (AC) electrical energy. It achieves this through the principle of electromagnetic induction. The alternator consists of a rotor, which rotates within a stator containing windings set. As the rotor spins, it creates a magnetic field that induces an alternating current in the stator windings, generating electricity.

Alternators play a pivotal role in the generator industry, providing a reliable source of electricity for various applications. Here are some key areas where alternators are extensively used:

  1. Standby Power Generators: Alternators are crucial components of standby power generators that provide backup electricity during power outages. These generators are commonly used in commercial buildings, hospitals, data centres, and critical infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted power supply. Alternators enable the conversion of mechanical power from the generator’s engine into electrical power for essential systems and equipment.
  2. Prime Power Generators: Prime power generators are employed in remote locations or areas without access to the main power grid. Alternators in prime power generators work alongside engines to generate continuous electricity, meeting the power demands of industrial sites, construction projects, mining operations, and off-grid communities.
  3. Mobile Generators: Alternators are utilized in mobile generators, such as those mounted on trailers or vehicles. These generators are commonly used for outdoor events, construction sites, and emergency response situations, providing temporary power wherever it is needed. Alternators ensure a steady supply of electricity, allowing for the operation of tools, lighting, and other equipment.

All Generators stock an extensive range of alternator brands known for their reliability and performance. Brands such as Stamford, Leroy Somer, Mecc Alte, Sincro, Linz, and Marathon are available, providing customers with a wide selection to choose from. This diverse range ensures that customers can find the perfect alternator solution to meet their specific power generation needs.
