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 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.
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.
