Thealternator is powered by the engine connected by a serpentine belt. This unit creates electrical power by utilizing a magnetized armature and outer copper windings which are connected to the battery using brushes. While in operation (engine running) this unit supplies electrical power for the vehicle while charging the battery at the same time.
There’s nothing wrong with a one-wire alternator but theoretically they aren’t as effective as their OEM-style counterparts of equal capacity. It’s because one of the additional wires in an OEM-style alternator senses the system voltage.
