Why does a car alternator generally utilise half wave three

Customer Question

Why does a car alternator generally utilise half wave three phase rectification for the field excitation? What is the problem with using a controlled (Mosfet?) full wave output as generated by the stator?

It is just possible that I might have fathomed out the technical reason. It could be one of cost and crudity. I could explain my thoughts to a highly qualified graduate professional electronics engineer, if he or she would like me to discuss it with him on the telephone. This could be useful if other people ask the same technical question. I do not want to waste the money as it looks like it may be too difficult a question for you to answer easily. Maybe I should not have asked such a technical question.

Since my question is taking too long to get a satisfactory reply, I would like a refund in accordance with the rules.
