10.3.2. Tension regulator
The quicker the generator anchor rotates, the tension is more. However consumers of energy in the car are not adapted for power surges. Therefore the regulator installed on the generator limits tension and at the same time interferes with overvoltage for charging of the rechargeable battery. The regulator is fixed on the generator and regulates tension in onboard network depending on ambient temperature and the battery within 13,8–14,5 V. Generator does not demand service as it has no places for lubricant. Its brushes are calculated on a run of 100 000 km. For repair of the generator it is necessary to address to the technical center Bosch or on STOA.
