Re: Alt Field Circuit Breaker Popping
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
50 amp breaker is handling the current out from the alternator. It is only active when the alternator is spinning otherwise current from the alternator is zero. Battery charge plus electric items is probably 35 amps right after takeoff. If engine is not turning or field voltage is zero, then all current is coming from the battery.

Update: I’ve located a 50amp breaker labeled MAIN. I turned on Master, electronics come on, and then I pulled the 50amp breaker. Nothing turned off. I’ve removed the breaker and would like to know how to test to confirm if it’s working or not.
Should all electronics turn off if I pulled the MAIN breaker?
