DC-DC Converter

DC-DC Converter Overview

(This page is currently under construction)

The conversion uses other accessories and safety features that consume power. Most of these devices run on 12V DC power, just like they would in an ICE vehicle. We will utilize the 12V system, with a 12V accessory battery, to power these features. Since we no longer have an alternator, we need to charge this battery a new way. The device that provides this charge is the DC-DC converter. This converter is also a “smart” device, in that it knows when the battery nears its full capacity.
