What Is an Alternator?

One part of today's internal combustion engines that has remained the same over the years is the alternator. You may have needed to replace one at some point over the years to fix a problem with your car's battery.

What is an alternator? The alternator is essentially an electric generator that's powered by a belt that's turned by your car's engine while it's running. This generates a continuous supply of electricity used to power the engine, lights, and cabin electronics. Most importantly, it provides the electricity that keeps your vehicle's battery charged so that you can start it again the next time you go for a drive.
