Automotive Electrical Systems: VAT-40 Starting System Test
In this highly interactive and animated object, learners examine the VAT-40 battery starting and charging system tester and study how the tester is used to diagnose vehicle starting system problems. This object has audio.
Learners read a description of the wiring configuration of a residential Edison Wire System, which consists of a transformer secondary circuit. The circuit supplies two 115-volt sources and one 230-volt source.
Learners read an explanation of how the Magnetron Ignition System uses a solid state switching component, a step-up transformer, and magnetism to provide a high voltage spark in a one-cylinder combustion engine.
Learners view the waveforms and voltages of an Edison Three-Wire System and read a description of the polarities across the secondary of the center-tap transformer. This transformer supplies power to residential homes.
