Maybe everyone was out sailing yesterday.
I have read a couple of previous discussions along these lines. Specifically connecting a solar charger
and wind generator
at the same time, a common issue. As I recall
, it was determined that there is no device currently available to automatically balance the charging
or switch devices.
One quesiton I have is whether there is a potential for damaging one of the charging sources if all or several are attached to the battery and operating at the same time. For example, running the engine
with a high output alternator
at the same time the wind
gen at the same time. Would the high voltage/amperage output of the alternator
possibly feed back into the wind
gen and fry the recitifiers or something?
I guess my idea would be to run all charging sources to a switching system and operate everything manually.
