What is the purpose of dual alternators?

The two alternator option helps keep the batteries charged when using a lot of electrical power, such as snow plow, or tow truck operation. Both alternators work together as one large one.


Can I put two alternator in my car?

The dual power system design works well with vehicles like RVs or police surveillance vehicles. Two alternators can also serve as a jerry-rigged replacement for larger alternators by combining two in series to reach the same level of power output, which is particularly helpful in improvised repair situations.


Can two alternators charging one battery?

One is dedicated to the engine battery and the other does the domestic battery(s). They DO NOT charge the same battery. You CANNOT charge a battery from two alternators..all sorts of sensing problems.


Will dual batteries hurt my alternator?

The first is if both batteries are low on charge then that would be too much for the alternator, but if only one is low then it would be fine. The second thing is linking the batteries will cause more problems. If you run the inverter from battery in the back then you run them from both.


Is higher amp alternator better?

That is, your alternator will only supply the amount of amperage a particular component demands—and no more. So high-output alternators will not harm your components or charging system, no matter how high you go with the amps.


How do I increase the voltage of my alternator?

Selecting different sized diodes can alter the output regulation of the alternator. A smaller diode will increase the charge voltage by more than a larger diode (due to the voltage drop varying with the diode current).


How do you make a alternator bracket?


How can I upgrade my alternator?


Can you run 2 alternators in parallel?

If both alternators/regulators are matches so that they both come up at roughly the same rate, then you can run into instability because one alternator dips and the other alternator tries to increase, but then the matching tries to make it decrease and the other one spikes.


How many amps does an alternator charge a battery at?

A: Charging time depends on the battery and the charger. For a battery being charged by the car’s alternator it can take an hour of driving to get it fully charged. Car batteries range from 40AH to 110AH, and alternators range from 45 amps to 200 amps.
