Battery Charging Generator Starter  (February 26, 2011)
designed by David A. Johnson, P.E.

As the drawing below illustrates, the alternator was wired in a three phase “Y” configuration.  By making a few changes, the alternator could be turned into a very powerful motor.  The motor had the advantage of being able to draw current from the main battery bank.  Using this method, the company’s control system would just need to activate a relay to switch the battery between the rectifier circuit and a brushless DC motor configuration.
