Textbook Problem

When checking AC generator output on a late-model vehicle: Technician A tests the battery’s open circuit voltage before testing the generators output because the battery’s SOC will affect the maximum output of the generator. Technician B checks the ambient temperature before performing any tests because the generator's output will be affected by temperature. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    Whether Technician A or Technician B is correct.

    Explanation

    The state-of-charge (SOC) indicates the condition of a battery. It is the also known as the remaining capacity of a battery.

    SOC is checked by open-circuit voltage. It affects the output voltage of a generator. The reading of output voltage should be 2V higher than the open-circuit voltage. Hence, while testing the AC generator output, the open-circuit voltage should be checked
