Bulk Battery Charging
I have an off grid solar system that is working great! I want to add a generator powered (I have an 8kw) battery charger to use only on cloudy days when I can not get enough power from my panels. Based on my 450 amp hour battery bank (4 T105re's) I can use a 50-75 amp charger. I'm looking for one with adjustable voltage, as I want to charge these Trojan's at 14.7 - 14.8 volts thru the "bulk stage only"...get them to 90%, and let the panels do the rest. I want to get them thru the bulk as quickly as possible, as my 8kw generator is a gas hog! Any recommendations on a charger...Iota....Powermax...or ??????. I seem to be having trouble finding one I can set to 14.8. FYI...the batteries are never discharged more than 40%....always are at 60% or better SOC. Thanks!
