I still have my Text book from the 60's, You can adjust a regulator for a generator by either turning adjusting screws or bending the contact arms.spring tension . polorizing a generator..the terminals you jump depends on internal wiring It is not the same for all units. and there is a cut out relay that prevents the battery from trying to make a generator a motor.

A regulator is a nonohmic element and its response cannot be adequately described in terms of resistors.

There is no fundamental effect on electrons, they continue to flow through wires like always.
