From Generating to Alternating: Running on Plane-Power

 July 2014- I've always liked generators. Unlike alternators, they will provide electrical power even if the battery is dead since generators depend on residual magnetism to provide the lines of magnetic flux needed to produce output.
Generators are tough, too: unlike alternators, they don't need a rectifier bridge to convert the alternator's alternating current (AC) output to useable direct current (DC) for our airplane electrical systems.
