Some sort of microcontroller to regulate accessory power usage in a car? Answered

 So as most of you know, I'm working on making a hydroxy booster for my car. That's not too hard. I'd like to build some sort of microcontroller-device-thingy that would regulate how much amperage the generator draws, based on the load required by the car, so as not to draw too much. Is this something for adruino or..? I'm kind of clueless on this one so.... PLZ HELP!!
I'm fairly unaccomplished in programing, but I could learn something if it's simple enough.

guyfrom7up is correct. The generator only generates the power that is needed. You could always have the microcontroller shut off the accessories when they are not being used as some devices (depending on the car/accessories) draw power even when they are off.

well the generator will only generate whatever the car requires, no regulation required.

same goes for drawing a motor, free running it will draw little current, but with resistance on the motor, it will draw much more current.
