I have a small diesel engine spinning a DC generator. I need a
control chip that will take approximately 60v that generator puts out
and charge the lead acid bank. Bank is 16 27M Die Hard deep cycle
wired in 4x4 configuration. It is my intention to control diesel
speed to give me a little headroom for charging the battery pack. I
will use external mosfets to get about 50A of charging current, so
just looking for the control chip.
Any ideas would be helpful.
Why not regulate the generator to output the correct charge voltage?
No conversion losses, only slight modifications to the
generator control hardware.
