For the alternator panels, instruments of the vertical edgewise type are used.
The other appears to have in it a resistance and a battery (or else an alternator).
The roar of the alternator died down, first to a hum and then to a purr.
The alternator began to buzz and spark, crackling viciously.
The prevailing type of alternator for transmission work is that with internal revolving magnets and external stationary armature.
In the illustration the alternator panels are shown at the left and the feeder panels at the right.
When the ends of the coil are connected to the terminals of an alternator the disc is set in rotation.
Each vertical row comprises the measuring instruments for an alternator.
I was up here—loading the condenser—when you cut me off from the alternator.
The electromotive-force equation of the alternator will be first deduced, and subsequently that of the continuous-current machine.
An electric generator that produces alternating current. The generator's coil is rotated (by a turbine, motor, or other power source), and its circular path causes it to cut cross a magnetic field (set up by strong magnets), first in one direction, then the other, with each cycle. The electric potential induced in the coil by this motion thus alternates between positive and negative once with each cycle, resulting in alternating current. See more at induction.
