Where do the wires go on a voltage regulator?
Its usually positioned above, or on the side of the alternator. It has a single rectangular plastic socket on the back which a plug containing four wires goes into.

You then take the switch power from whatever you have twelve fourteen sixteen volts from that Bosch relay.
What are the terminals on a voltage regulator?
As the name suggests, three terminal voltage regulators have three terminals namely input which is unregulated (Vin), regulated output (Vo) and common or a ground terminal. These regulators do not require any feedback connections. Figure shows the basic the 3 terminal voltage regulator.
Do you have to polarize a voltage regulator?
Polarizing your 12-volt generator is necessary for your generator to work in conjunction with the regulator. A generator, unlike an alternator, can run off both positive and negative current. A regulator always runs off positive current.
How is a voltage regulator wired?
Connect the positive battery cable wire -- usually red -- to the regulator. Connect the wire to the terminal marked B (sometimes this terminal is marked BATT). Connect the generator or alternator wire to the regulator. Connect the field wire -- field coil wire -- to the field terminal on the regulator.
How does an external voltage regulator work?
The voltage regulator monitors the voltage coming out of the alternator and, when it reaches a threshold of about 14.5 volts, the regulator reduces the current in the rotor to weaken the magnetic field. When the voltage drops below this threshold, the current to the rotor is increased.
What are the types of 3 terminal fixed voltage regulator?
The popular 3 terminal fixed regulators available today are in the form of IC 7805, IC 7809, IC 7812, IC 7815, and IC 7824, which correspond to fixed voltage outputs of 5 V, 9 V, 12 V, 15V, and 24 V.
Is an example of fixed positive voltage regulator?
Examples:- 7805, 7806, 7809 etc. A negative fixed voltage regulator is same as the positive fixed voltage regulator in design, construction & operation. These ICs are designed to provide a negative output voltage. Example:- 7905, 7906 and all those ICs in the 79XX series.
