Hi

I am brand new to goldwing and this forum as I just bought myself a 1991 Goldwing 1500SE. I had to replace the altenator as the one it had was modified with a car rectifier.

My question is what is the function of the capacitor on the altenator??

Greetings to all

John

First of all, welcome to the forum.

The capacitor is the noise filter for the CB.

Son-of -gun :
A capacitor resists a change of voltage, proportional to current, and inversely proportional to capacitance.

dv/dt = i/c

Capacitors can do various things. They can filter out high frequency transients, or power supply ripples, they can block DC while passing AC, they can participate with other components such as resistors and inductors to form filters - the list is endless.
