Wikipedia’s definition says an alternator is an electrical generator that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy in the form of alternating current. For reasons of cost and simplicity, most alternators use a rotating magnetic field with a stationary armature.
How does it work?
The alternator continually charge the battery so your vehicle continues to run.
What happens when it is broken?
Once the car has started the battery will only get the vehicle so far before the vehicle can’t operate any more. As the alternator charges the battery, if your experiencing alternator failure there will be no current sent to charge the battery causing your vehicle to stop.
