How do you increase a voltage regulator from a 6v generator up to 8v to charge an 8v battery?
Without knowing what you have for a regulator, I can't say this will help. I did one last spring for a friend on his old antique boat. It is a 6v system which we changed to 8v (positive ground at that).
This regulator is on a generator, not alternator, probably same as you, basically a small metal box with a relay inside. The premis of this regulator is the spring tension is just so that at about 7.5 to 8 volts, it would trip and disconnect the generator. Simply adjust the tension so it trips at a higher voltage. You will need a very accurate volt meter, preferably digital. Also remember your target isn't actually 8 volts, 10 is probably close enough. 8.8 volts is static charge, I think 9.2 is operating charge so 9.6 or so would be peak voltage under charge (a 12V battery will show 14.4 sitting and about 15 while under charge)..
This worked great for us, doesn't show signs of boiling the battery but does keep it at peak..
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
The electromotive force of a chemical cell is a function of the materials used in the manufacture of its electrodes. A battery consists of a number of cells connected in serie…s. If you want a greater emf, then you must use a greater number of cells.
No, it will overcharge the battery and overtime destroy it.
AVR stands for Automatic Voltage Regulator for generator. Most AVR work by automatically comparing the sensed voltage with the reference setting generator output voltage then …diverting the input current to the exciter circuit. Some AVR circuit are configured in parallel connection with the exciter stator winding, When it sense below rated set voltage, more current is feed to the exciter to catch up the voltage difference until it would reach equilibrium again, when it is within rated voltage less current is feed to the exciter or more current is diverted to the AVR circuit. Some AVR has manual remote voltage trim or control to manually raise or lower the set voltage. The AVR works also during parallel operation by regulating voltage and controlling load Ampere (load sharing capability), the power factor (PF) and VAR (Volt-Amps Reactive).
Why would you want to do that? With the (4) 12V Deep Cycle's your run-time will be MUCH less. Club Car golf cart's for 2009 just switched back to the (6) 8V batt sys…tem for their new Precedent models. Too many voltage problems with the (4) - 12V's, that's why Club Car went back to the (6) 8V's. Optimum 48V set up is (8) 6V's for long run time and easy 12V accessory. With the (6) 8V's, you just get a 48V to 12V REDUCER to run whatever accessories you like. Can be found on eBay for $60.
Answer Turn the crankshaft until it is at the #1 TDC mark. Turn the camshaft until the dot or line is aligned with the mark on the crank pully. Each manufacturer… has a slightly different way of indicating #1 TDC, but there is always some kind of mark.
A voltage regulator controls the output voltage of a generator. This ensures only the specified ÊvoltageÊis supplied thus preventing damage to the circuit and other elec…trical appliances.Ê
No. A 12 v battery will actually have a charged peak voltage of 13.54v or 13.58v. A six volt charger will have around a max 7.5v voltage. The 6v charger will think the battery… has peaked and will discontinue charging.
8v+56 Eight is the G.C.F so box it out and then divided it by 56 and there. Answer 8(v+7)
Not safely. You can easily burn out both pieces.
Although it really depends on the model, most are 12V. Do You Have The Old battery how many cells does it have,most 6volts have 3cells and 12volts have 6.It all depend o…n the tractor some use a motorcycle battery.
3.5L without changing the filter. 4L if you do change the filter. Keep an eye on the level as you do it anyway.
Obviously 16v. The number in the name is the amount of cylinders, while the "v" is the engine configuration. So 16v is better because it has 2 times as many cylinders. Usually… when the "V" is after the number it refers to the number of valves not cylinders. So a V8 16v could mean an eight cylinder v configuration with 16 valves.
You said "stay charged if new" - Did you use the cart? If so that is kind of how the cart works - You use it and recharge it. You said new batteries - Have they gon…e through the "break in" period (about 100 charging cycles)? If you did not use the cart then are you using an automatic charger and how long does it take to "not stay charged" or for the charge to go away? If you did not use the cart then I suspect the automatic charger may kick on and off as it needs to (like once every 7-30 days). If the charger has been turning on and off daily then there is a problem. Is the charging handle (from charger) damaged? Is the charging plug (on golf cart) damaged? What is the brand, year, model, and type of golf cart (Example: E-Z-Go 1997 TXT Electric 36 volt)? What is the brand, model, and type of charger (Example: Powerwise II Automatic). Is the charging handle making good contact (Snap in) with the cart - Do you hear a click about one to three seconds after you snap it in? If you do, then that is the charger "shaking hands" with the golf cart and basically saying "I sure would like to charge you up if you want". The charger would then turn on with the above example cart/charger (E-Z-Go/Powerwise) REVIEW - I said "Snap" then "Click" and finally "Charger turns on" The whole process can take up to 2 -10 seconds. A damaged charging handle or cart plug may keep repeating the "clicking" and "charger on" thing. Is the drain caused by a short or bad battery? Battery: Use safety glasses, gloves, and a taped wrench (electrical tape wrapped over boxed half of wrench) to take off the negative and positive cable of the battery bank (search youtube video for help). Let the cart set overnight to see if the cart loses the charge. If it does then it may be a hard (or junk) battery & that will also cause an automatic charger to stay on high amps (needle in red zone on charger's meter) for a long time (over an hour) during charge. [This may high amp thing may also take place when breaking in a new set of batteries but not after two hours.] Short or drain: If the batteries retained the charge with the cables unhooked over night then it may be a short (drain on the batteries). The short must be corrected or you may also have a fire hazard! If you are not sure how to trace a short then get the cart to someone who can without plugging the cart to the charger.
Generator output is controlled by voltage feedback to the voltage regulator which senses voltage drop or rise and regulates the current being sent to the armature. This rise a…nd fall of the armature current governs the generators output voltage.
If you double the applied voltage 2v to 4v and 4v to 8v how many times does the power increase how and by which formula?
Lets take the basic case of if you have a 2V battery with a resistor going from the positive terminal to the negative one. V = i*R and P = V*i are the two equations that you n…eed to know; solve the first one for i, so i= V/R and sub it into the second equation, so P = V*V/R, or P = V^2/R. Now you can see in this setup, if you double the voltage, the power is multiplied by 4.
