I've tried a lot of research but I can't find specifically what I'm looking for no one has actually mentioned this and I've looked at various wiring diagrams which still don't prove how this is possible:
I understand that the alternator supplies electrical current for the vehicle electronics when the engine is running as well as charging the battery.
However, when the battery is removed, the electronics still operate for a while (although this is dangerous I know) as the alternator is powering the electronics.
My question is how is the alternator directly powering the electronics without the battery??
All the wiring diagrams I've looked at show that the alternator is powering the electronics through the battery but if this is removed shouldn't the electronics shut off as the computers etc have no battery voltage?
Is there some sort of direct connection between the alternator and vehicle electronics?
