PENDLETON, Ind. Improving fuel savings is one of the most important goals of any fleet on the road today. Inspired by this fact, Remy Inc. recently published a new white paper entitled, “Improving Alternator Efficiency Measurably Reduces Fuel Costs,” in order to share its expertise and benefit the entire industry.
The Remy Inc. white paper provides an in-depth explanation of how an alternator works, examines where and how power losses can occur within the alternator and quantifies how efficiency plays a role in fuel consumption. Actual vehicle test data is provided to support the cost savings that can be experienced when upgrading to a higher efficiency alternator.
“With the high price of fuel, fleet and vehicle owners should not ignore this important parameter associated to alternator efficiency,” said Mike Bradfield, author of the white paper and staff engineer at Remy Inc. “Increasing alternator efficiency can, and will, measurably reduce fuel costs.”
