When the ignition is on, the alternator is 'excited' by current supplied through the "Ign" / "BAT"/"CHG" indicator dash light.
Soonever the alternator comences to produce charge current, the dash indicator is extinguished (by internal alternator voltage generation) and the (usually inbuilt) voltage regulator takes over the alternator output regulation.
