Over Charge circuit
« on: October 21, 2009, 05:09:34 PM »
Is there some way to fool the alternator into overcharging a battery for a while.  For example, I deep cycle a battery bank every day using about 30-40% of the 400 AH (100%).  When charging the bank.  I would like to fool the 105 amp alternator regulator into charging at 50 Amp or more for 30 - 60 minutes (bulk mode) to get most of the charge back into the battery bank before it goes manually back into the "acceptance" mode.

I also have one 180 Watt solar panel and a wind generator hooked to the system but on certain days there is insufficient power added to the battery to maintain charge and I need to run the alternator to ensure recharge.

I have hear that there is a way to add a diode into the "sense" line to fool the alternator into thinking the battery is at a lower state of charge.  Can you also fool the "one wire" alternator set up as well?
