I have seen the graphs for alternator output but I only can find amps vs. rpm. Does anyone know the output in volts?
Is the output always the same voltage or does it change with rpm or battery charge condition.
I am asking because I am trying to figure out the simplest way to charge Lithium Ion batteries.
I plan on having at least 300 watts of solar so I know that with the proper controller I can charge the Li-ion battery but I want to know if there is a way to also use the alternator for quicker charging.
I was thinking of a dual battery system like this - http://www.equipt1.com/item/dual-bat...unt-controller
...now you have hooked that sterling battery charger to it which asks for more amps from the altenator. (the voltage regulator in the altenator keeps the volts at a constant value regardless of the anperage output!)
Though the output of the Sterling battery to battery charger can be set to whatever voltage profile you want. It can be set for flooded, AGM, lithium, etc. Here's a link to MORE INFO.
