So how does this alternator works in BMW?

BMW alternator works in the way a DC generator works. Alternator in BMW is a charging system, which produces alternating current to run various devices in the car. Alternator can also be said as a generator, since it converts mechanical energy to electrical energy to produce current. Since most of the equipment inside the car runs by alternating current, alternator in BMW plays a very important role in the functioning of the car.

Function of BMW Alternator? 

The functioning of the BMW alternator is similar to the working of the DC generator. Alternator use magnetic field around the conductor, but the way of magnetising the conductor varies as some uses rotating and other uses linear magnetic field. The electricity is produced in the conductor when the rotating magnet cuts the flow of filed around the conductor. Hence the produced alternating current causes the rotator to turn and this rotating magnetic field generates alternating current.

The purpose of BMW alternator is to power up the electrical device in the car. The power generated from the alternator is stored in the battery, to supply electricity even when the car is idle. The biggest advantage of alternator is, you don’t really need to rely on commutator. So what is a commutator? It is a rotary electric switch used in electric motors or electrical generators. Generating electricity using commutator is quite expensive, so it would be a major breakthrough for alternators not depending on it.

The construction of a alternator varies with respect to the kind of vehicle or truck and that too depends on the necessity of electricity within the vehicle or truck. Since the functions and working of a BMW alternator play a crucial role, if you found any defects it has to be replaced properly with a genuine parts. At Car Parts Warehouse, we sell genuine BMW car parts at a reasonable price. To know more about BMW alternator, call us at toll free 1-800-565-5021.
