    lead acid charger schematic

    Hi,

    i am looking for the schematic of a good lead acid chargeur with maintenance charging for a maximum battery of 65Ah.

    thanks.

    Totue.

    multiple battery lead acid charger schematics

    The absolut simplest is to have 13.8 V applied to the battery at all times. If you want to get a bit more complex, use a current limiter so that when the 13.8 is applied to a discharged battery the current is limited to about 1/10 or 1/20 of the battery capacity. If you want to get even more complex, have the voltage 14.7 V while charging and when the current drops to 1% of the rated capacity drop to 13.8 V.

    uc2906 simple design?

    You can use UC2906 (linear) or UC2909 (switchmode) lead acid battery charger from Texas Instruments.

    l200 lead acid

    We can design using simple digital ic's and a analogue muxer like 4067.

    uc2906 charger circuits

    you can apply the idea supplied by flatulent
    by building a variable voltage power supply arround LM317 and sens the current floww over a small power resistor, when the current drops use the output of the comparator that sense the current to switch the control terminal of the LM317 to drop the voltage to the current tackling mode.

    lead acid trickle charger schematic free

    A lead acid battery needs to be charged with a constant VOLTAGE rather thasn a constant current. Having built many of these that moniter the voltage and cut in at various times I have come to the conclusion that the best method is to use a very heavy rectifier and a well chosen transformer the secondry giving a voltage of 14 voltes to maintain the stait of the battery. this way will allow you to startthe car with the charger connected and not damage your charger.

    lead acid charger max voltage

    The best algorithm is constant current, in the first stage, and constant voltage in the second stage (after achieved maximum voltage level). Also, all voltages are temperature-dependent, so charger have to track temperature. This is not important, when battery is charged in the room temperature (+20...+25 C deg), but in the industrial temperature range (-20...+70 C deg) this is very important.

    lead acic charger l200

    I would not chose the constant current first part of the charge. There will be times when you will have to charge a battery from a terminal voltage of possibly 1or 2 voltes. A constant current at this point may not inicalise the battery for a full charge. I have found that lead acid batteries should banged charge to overcome any residual coating on the plates and then left to charge for the duration of the battery capacity.

    Sure. When the battery is in deep discharge, you have to use other stage - in datasheet UC2906 (UC3906) this stage is called "trickle charge". The battery is charged low constant current. When voltage rises above minimum voltage, charger switches to normal charge.
    Look at the datasheet UC2906 from Texas Instruments.

    uc2906 example circuit

    I think, the best way is to refine specifications and later select appropriate device. It standart charging profile is reqired only, use fixed-function chips. For more advanced designs the best way build around CPU and implement all functions in the firmware.

    constant current voltage limited charger lm350

    This is a very interesting question, in my opinion.
    If you talk solar, then you have a number of parameters to take under consideration.
    - Solar panel voltage
    - Battery voltage
    - Type of battery (lead acid, gel, etc)
    - Current requirement of the inverter if used with a UPS

    The best I could come up with is a digital solution using the very good A to D from Linear technology (24 bit resolution 0.5 ppm offset, 0.55 uV noise 110 dB rejection @ 50 or 60 Hz) and a micro such as the Motorola HC12. The end result is pretty nice. The battery is even disconnected from the UPS if the load requirement is low enough to be provided directly by the solar panel!

    Due to the fact that such equipment can be placed outside where temperature can easily raise to 48 Celsius degrees, it is quite a very challenging analog design! So I forgot about analog and used pure digital technique.

    Results are economic, no drift in time or no adjustment with 10 turns pot here and there... All parameters are programmable and all the floating parameters are taking care of in the digital world. A 4 lines x 20 characters LCD display the status and a simple keypad is used to modify and store in the HC12 EEprom the various desired parameters.

    In short, efficient, economic and maintenance free! Try to do the same in the analog world... (I mean discrete components) and you would end up with a very large monster!
