# electric output stator

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

The stator output is AC, a battery is DC. You will have to add a rectifier to change the output to DC, and this will use up avaiable watts. I have been told you could lose 10-15 watts by using a rectifier. (I`m not THAT much of an electronics wizz, so I`m not sure on that point - just what I was told) A battery will offset some ofthe watage loss,

but it`s a losing proposition - the battery will continue to drain and run out - there`s not enough watts to charge it as you ride. I`m keeping my system AC to have as much watts as possible. My horn is a self contained unit with a 9v battery, and I`ll run turn signals (led) from a small AA batter pack in my airbox The stator output is AC, a battery is DC.

(I`m not THAT much of an electronics wizz, so I`m not sure on that point - just what I was told) Alternating current is called that because the current reverses polarity as the magnets pass over the coils. The voltage is then shown as a wave with a peak positive voltage, falling to zero, then dipping to the same voltage negative, then back to positive again. Hook this up to a battery and for every amp you put in, you take it right back out again when the poles reverse. So, you need a rectifier to make all the voltage go the same way. The simple way is the half wave rectifier, which need be nothing more than a single diode. This will simply cut off the voltage with the wrong polarity and let the rest through, but in so doing, you discard half of the current the magneto produces, and you loose a small amount more in ordinary losses. Full wave rectifiers are a little more complicated, but not at all impractical....
