I searched high and low but couldn't find an answer to this question (which I find strange) so here it is:
controlling a Ballmar 200A alternator
feeding a lithium battery
I would like to feed as much current
into the bank as possible in the shortest time so I figure I would play with the bulk charge settings. I have set bv (bulk voltage) to 14.4 and b1c (bulk time) to 6 hrs (to be tweaked later). The part I don't understand is field threshold, bulk to absorption or fba. Factory default is 65%.
If I want to cram as much current
into the batteries without going to absorption, do I want to increase the percentage set point or decrease it ?
The manual says that raising fba shortens the calculated bulk charge time but I am having problems interpreting how calculated bulk charge time relates to actual bulk charging
I could really use a bit of interpretation for these settings.
