Re: Alternator charging a Lithium bank

Dean Gillies

Hello Doug,
Good points above from the other members.

I would not recommend the use of any alternator cut-off mechanism that is not based upon direct cell-level monitoring.  You must ensure that the alternator ceases charging before the BMS disconnects due to a cell over-voltage.  This is not guaranteed to happen if you only monitor the battery (24V) voltage to control the alternator.

If you planning on using the Victron Lithium batteries and BMS then I think Scott has a solution. Scott?
