Water Gas anyone?

So, to achieve the brute force simple method where you can dump a great deal of current into the water gas electrolysis/reaction chamber when braking; is to use a stack of FETs on heat sinking, at least triple the current capability of the alternator. Continue reading

More on the Capacitive Charger

Mind you- the Capacitive charger is a slightly different beast, but you can use the Application Note as a reference to refine the charger and normalize the concept of the capacitive charger. The importance being the calculations. The real notable difference is as a battery charging circuit, the battery is both a load and a capacitance in the circuit, so there is no need for the 470 microfarad capacitor or the zener diode that are shown in the Application Note. The equations provided will also allow for a bit of optimization and also allow those on 50 Hertz/250 volt standards to modify the charger a bit closer to optimal for their area of the world.

Some useful references I have found over the years and some useful notes

…but perhaps most important are the Data sheets, Application Notes and “Suggested designs” from the manufacturers themselves. Sometimes sample circuits are presented in the Data sheets, otherwise look to Application Notes. Some of the Application notes are even compiled into a book in such a way that the book could be used as a textbook… Continue reading

A Partial Update on Capacitive Charger

I added some capacitance to the charger, so now there is 10 microfarads total capacitance. I just added them parallel to the original. Rain has prevented using the charger for over a week. Until the charger is fully tested, the … Continue reading

Miscellaneous MOSFET notes.

I mentioned early on in this blog that other MOSFETs could work, and they will work in most cases as long as they are in circuits that are within their peak ratings. Continue reading

These battery chargers are not for fools and idiots

While charging alkalines, check the temps periodically. Those that may be prone to failure will be notably warmer than the other cells. If one is encountered, unplug charger and test the voltage of that particular cell- it may be fully charged, but in any event it should be taken out of the charger and another discharged cell slipped in. Continue reading

An adjustment for the Alkaline Charger.

Changing this single bulb charger to a 7 1/2 Watt incandescent light bulb reduces the charging rate and therefore allows for the gasses that sometimes build up to escape. There will still likely be some failures encountered at this charging rate, but they should be much lower in incidence than occurs with a 25 Watt bulb or 40 Watt bulb. Any charger will have failed cells, it is part of the chemistry of primary cells. Continue reading
