Suppose one wanted to charge a 100W battery bank from wind, solar, and a dc generator. Now I could probably use diodes to keep from charging my solar panels or turbines.
But the MPPT controller I'm using for my panels can be linked with other MPPT controllers. I think this would be ideal for ensuring my batteries aren't overwhelmed with multiple power sources simultaneously and my sources are safe.
My question is, could I use an MPPT charge controller for things besides solar? Like for an alternator, turbine, or dc charger?
Yup. That's the beauty of MPPT chargers: they convert anything you throw at it to a proper charging voltage
You are making however some blank or incorrent statements, so you really need to study more about this topic or have a professional install your system, or else I'm forecasting you'll zap your panels, controller or yourself.
Plenty of video tutorials and explanations on the YewTubes
>>925728 The only one I know of is the midnite classic 150 with a clipper which is EXPENSIVE. Most wind and hydro owners directly hook up a permanent magnet alternator direct to the batteries and use a voltage sensing controller to activate a relay. Look it up on missouri wind and solar. They have a few nice ones that you can program, which is needed since voltages can vary system by system and you need the set point slightly higher than your panels bulk charge so it wont interfere with the solar charge controller. Wind is a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am a fa/tg/uy, but I make stuff when I can. This is my most recent project. It's tokens for D&D. I used a one-inch hole punch, one-inch steel washers and some epoxy resin to dome the other side. They have nice weight to them and they seem durable.
My question is this:
>What would be the best way to make reusable maps for D&D so I can use my tokens?
Let's get a tabletop game thread going. What have you built? Terrain for 40k? D&D maps and minis?
I made a 1" grid with simple graphics software (ms paint will not be enough for this), to a big enough size to suit my playing surface, took a PDF file of it to my local office supplies store that offered large format printing, and then had the printed sheet laminated straight after at the same place. Staples, OfficeMax and FedEx Kinko should all offer these services. Chessex has several sizes of reusable gaming mats with both square and hexagonal grids, too, and in all honesty, would cost less than making your own.
>>925645 Looks overpriced. In fact, you probably paid for that fancy green 'made in Germany' text more then the product itself. Hell, a monkey could push a liquid filled glass into a plastic or fiberglass shell when a machine says its level.
Anyways, stop looking for attention online you fag. This board is for posting diy projects and things done yourself. And not, shopping is not diy.
I've used X10 technology to do stuff like that. you need a USB-X10 interface box, and X10 receivers in your lights, or the light switches, or sockets. however, it's a dying technology which is being replaced by something whose name i forget. see www.smarthome.com for examples.
Steam softens the staves to a point of usability. Once they're soft you bend them into shape and let them cool & dry so they hold. Then you can use fine nails and banding to hold the furniture together.
>>925556 there was a chair thread soem days ago but it's already archived so I'll ask here.
i am in the progress of replacing the gas cylinder/spring on my comfy office chair.
does anyone know what exactly the difference in shape is for in these things? picture related, I am talking about the thinner lower part. in some parts the lower thin part is longer, in soem it's not there at all.
I just bought 2 of these 600CFM inline fans to move air from the top of my paint booth in my garage, through two home furnace filters to stop any particles than outside. My old ones were starting to get old and clogged up, I guess I got the wrong CFM as last time and my new ones are blowing too fast. I unfortunately cannot return them
Is there a way to run them at a slower speed? They are 110V
I'm installing some L-track in the back of my jeep, and I have to drop some screws through the tub and weld nuts to the underside. The problem is the holes are lining up at the worst possible location, right into the bent section of a support piece for the tub. I already notched one out with a dremel as you can see but its kind of shitty and tedious.
I need to do 7 more of these, can you think of a better way than notching with a dremel? I thought about removing the whole piece but there are at least 20 somewhat large spot welds that I would have to fill in which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Would rivnuts/nutserts be strong enough for this? These tracks are supposed to hold in a seat. 2 tracks per seat, 7 fasteners per 3 foot track. I would think 14 nutserts into 1 layer of 18ga sheet metal and 1 layer of slightly thicker metal would be sufficiently strong to hold a passenger in place, right?
So guys I have a project in mind but it involves some steel cutting. Problem: I don't have any power tools (torch cutter, plasma cutter, angle grinder, etc.). Is there a simple way to cut steel without these instruments? >Pic not related those aren't the plates
>>925429 Is it worth £3.74 not to drive for 2 hours? Yes it is. I don't know where you got the £2.50 from but yes, i've sooner do nothing and pay £2.50 than drive for an hour, even though i'm a taxi driver.
>>925429 Not to mention wear on the vehicle. This is a penny wise, pound foolish way of thinking. If you really want to save money move to an apartment that's $100 cheaper a month, save $1,200 annual. Quit worrying about $5 is retarded.
Hello /diy/ i'm planning to make a few custom power banks. I want them to be as small as possible. Can someone guide me where to find most reliable circuit boards? I don't mind the price, but the only place to buy them from looks like Aliexpress or other Chinese stores. Not that i think that they sell crap but its hard to trust reviews posted there. I'm planning to use single protected 18650 battery for each one. Maybe someone knows reliable manufacturers or ect? Thanks in advance.
Buying an 18650 based powerbank will be cheaper, safer and more reliable than anything you could bodge together yourself. It will also be smaller than anything you can throw together. Nobody will suck ya dick because you went through the trouble of making your own. (Not that you could do that anyway, since you're here asking dumb questions)
>>925437 >/diy/ >someone wants to make his own power bank >hurrdurr you can just buy it cheaper that literally applies to almost anything on this board. Just get out or stop giving shitty useless 'advice'.
How do I make a barrel? I want one to put liquor in but they are expensive as hell Could I make a white trash barrel by taking a log, hollowing it out then capping it off? Some sort of ratchet strap or clamp could put pressure on the caps from the outside to prevent leaks.
Sup /diy/, Lets talk pottery. Made a pottery wheel. made a kick wheel design. used a cars spare tire for the wheel, made a hub out of plywood, used flange bearing to hold the shaft, plywood for the wheel head.
>>925381 Id get into pottery if i lived somewhere I could sauce clay for cheap. But paying 45 dollars for like 20lbs of clay when all they did was scoop it out with truck and send it off to have a machine remove the plant matter and upcharge it in price is bull.
>>925391 have you tried digging for clay? i get my clay out of the ground, it's mostly clean, has fine sand in it. got clay out of garden soil once, can't say how good it was, as i didn't make pottery back then >>925387 if it slows down to quick, i'll fill it with sand or water
I want to connect some fluorescent bulbs and I need a help from an electrician.
I want to make an indoor greenhouse for growing seedlings. I have a building with big windows but they are blurred and not enough sunlight can enter inside. I want to build a fluorescent bulb based grow lights. I need those bulbs need ballasts and starters but I can't find any info on connecting a lot of bulbs.
Picture related is what I want to do, but on much larger scale, I want to have 50-60 of 1.5m (4,9feet) bulbs working at once. I don't want to buy assemblies because... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>925362 Easiest way? Get blue and red 12v led strips. I'm not aware of a system that allows multiple bulbs to be run on the same ballast. Basically the bonus circuitry in the ballast and starter just start and keep the arc going. So you kinda need one thing per arc you want to maintain. So I guess you'll just be buying 50x 50$ assemblies if you're set on fluorescents. How much of this have you done before? Start small first. Don't want to blow a few thousand dollars on a setup you'll get bored of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
