Hybrid Car – More Fun with Less Gas

Hey do you know your car's alternator only outputs 7-10% while it's running?

Yup 10% if you battery is at 12.05V, and only 7% after charging voltage
went to 14.04V.

Now don't confuse now, voltage doesn't mean CURRENT, they are two different

Don't ask me why, ask BOSH and AC Delco designed their regulators that way.
Forget about buying bigger alternator if you want more power off your
alternator, what you have to do is to learn how to control your regulator,
another words learn how to command it to output more CURRENT.  If you make
mistake, your car will go to a junkyard, I warn you.

I removed alternators off many vehicles over 50 times per month.  Not even
single mistake have I made.  I am giving you this tip for your own benefit.
Oh by the way any one of your idiots know how to double the power off your
Alternator?  Let's say it's a 150amp alt, can you double its output?  The
answer is Yes you can.

I work with Alternator to help my customers increase fuel efficiency.
That's how I arrive to see the benefit of alternator in Wind Power.  Since
you idiots like cheap stuffs, you might as well start from scratch, go
under your car, and monkey around.

Poor boy. Where did you learn your science?
Your alternator can only give out it's "full power" for a limited
time.   (Long enough to charge up the battery after you've started the
car.)  If you tried to run it at full output for more that ten or
twenty minutes it would burn out.
How many accessories it will run depends on how cheeseparing car
manufactururer was.  But overload it at your peril.
This is true  of many electrical machines. (Including transformers,
power tools etc).

If the utilisation factor of a machine is 1 this means it can run
continuously at full power.
 If it is 0.3 it can only run for 20mins in every hour at full power.
Ambient air temperature also has a bearing.
It's not an exact thing but gives an indication.
The limiting factor is not the size of the conductors, it's how much
heat the insulation can stand and how efficiently waste heat casn be

Oh boy, I'm so glad America has so many dumbasses....  America is full of
talkers, and imaginary smartasses....and Rednecks....Heehee.......

Let me remind you, whatever test you do outside your car/truck, do not
assume they're all the same as in your car.

i've been curious to know where you're from.  i'd imagine where ever it is
you're from you must have a lot of national pride about it.  i was going to
guess brazil but maybe eastern europe?  just curious.
