Three-phase Generator (Alternator) UniTrain Course
Virtually all modern motor vehicles are equipped with a Three-phase generator to produce the required electrical energy. With this course the trainees gain insight into the generator’s basic functions and learn how to control it. They also plan and carry out diagnostics, maintenance and repair work on the power supply and the starting systems.
