batter overcharging ciruit Answered

Hi Dear,

I was nice to see circuit diagram to stop overcharging of battries.

Pls let me know if the circuit will work with 180 v dc ( ie 15 batteries of 12 v each ) to charge from solar panel.

What modifications I hv to make to make  it work for that  15 batteries of 12 volt and 120AH power.

I think you would be better using super capacitors and a few batteries. You will need to do a lot of desulfation in years to come when the batteries do not hold a charge.

180VDC? You have all 15 batteries wired in series? Why, and How are you making the conversion from DC to AC?

Most systems i've seen have the batteries wired in parallel and feeding to a 12VDC inverter. They are wired in parallel so you have more current available so you can run the inverter longer. Then your charging system only needs to work with 12V max.
