Re: The automixer works!!

Re: The automixer works!!

Stephen, You might want to check out the PID library. From my understanding it will make the adjustments without the overshoot.

Re: Starting with a dead battery

I like the fact that Stephen went with the second alternator.There are some bias circuits on-line that allow for "topping-off" batteries, or trickle-charging,

Hi Luk, There is some software signal filtering I need to adjust. After a few more days of tweaking it should be just like yours. Stephen ... From: 'Luk

Re: The automixer works!!

Stephen, Good job. One thing puzzles me. I see your mixer is constantly moving. When I run my mixer he just adjust to a certain point and then stay’s there.

Re: Starting with a dead battery

Hi Doug, I agree with all that and it's why I went with a single wire in my first attempt....it just didn't work. Disconnecting pin 1 and putting a switch on

Re: Starting with a dead battery

I actually think there is something wrong with the system. Not that the alternator starts charging too early unless it is SEVERELY mismatched or something.

Re: Starting with a dead battery

Interesting. Is this because the alternator is charging the battery at a high rate? Or is there something in the alternator itself that soaks up the power?

Re: This video from MikroPul seems interesting

I guess I should back up and explain that the scale I am dealing with demands industrial solutions...which tend to be cheap, because industry is folding up

Re: Starting with a dead battery

Hi Pete, I just hooked a new single wire 10si to a Honda GX200 clone. The problem was that the alternator started charging right away and created too much

Re: Starting with a dead battery

Hi Gordy, I am just finishing up borrowing a three wire 10si alternator from my 1969 CJ-5. It liked the shiny new single wire alternator better anyway. When
