Electrical equipment of any Caterpillar equipment includes an alternator Caterpillar or AC Caterpillar generator - a device that converts the mechanical energy received from a Caterpillar engine into an electrical one. Together with a voltage regulator, it is called an alternator set. Caterpillar alternators are installed on modern Caterpillar equipment. They meet the requirements to the greatest degree.
Requirements for the Caterpillar alternator:
- the output parameters of the Caterpillar alternator must be such that in any mode of motion of the machinery there is no progressive discharge of the Caterpillar battery;
- The voltage in the onboard network of equipment powered by the Caterpillar alternator must be stable over a wide range of speed and load variations.
The latter requirement is caused by the fact that the Caterpillar rechargeable battery is very sensitive to the degree of voltage stability. Too low voltage causes a low battery and, as a consequence, difficulties with starting the engine, too high voltage leads to a battery recharge and accelerated failure of the battery.
The principle of operation of the Caterpillar alternator and its principle constructive device are the same for all types of equipment, differ only in the quality of manufacture, dimensions and arrangement of the connecting units.
