What Does an Alternator Do?

For a car’s electrical system to be activated, there needs to be a source of electricity. The component that is responsible for generating this electricity is known as an alternator. It is situated at the car’s engine bay. It is connected to the engine through a shaft that contains a belt and a pulley.
