What is an Aircraft Generator?

Most aircraft require some source of electrical power to run equipment such as the navigation system, lights, built-in radios, landing and taxiing equipment, and other systems. Aircraft produced after the 1960s generally run this equipment on an alternator, but classic aircraft use a generator for these functions.

The generator helps to provide electrical power to the aircraft by creating a stationary magnetic field in which a coil is rotated. As the coil rotates within the field, voltage is generated. Slip rings or a commutator pick up this voltage and a lengthy wiring system carries the voltage to necessary equipment.

Aircraft generators can produce electrical power even when the battery is dead, like after a long idle on the tarmac. The generator can begin to recharge the aircraft battery as long as the aircraft’s engine speed is up, usually above 1,200-1,500 rpm. This happens when the aircraft is at constant cruising speed.
