Well said Bill, but I have to disagree about the batteries being held at 28.8 V for long periods of time.
14.4 V is the gassing voltage for a 12 volt battery and holding the 24V bank at 28.8V for long periods of time will cause the batteries to lose electrolyte through gassing. If this electrolyte is not replaced the batteries will be damaged.
