I have lost the DC component of the output from my stator. As you might suspect the module is sealed and this requires me to replace the stator/module assembly. I do not like this given that the implement is only 3 years old.
The rectifier/regulation module is secured to the engine block so I suspect heat and vibration are the primary factors contributing to its short lifespan. In turn, I would like to design and fabricate this module because I suspect I can make a more robust module.
Estimates of current load capability can e obtained from the conductor dimensions but I am also concerned about reducing the impact of AC noise.
