This is just a real simple question for the current cap users out there so im going to create an example and see if my calculations are about right or not.
100,000w of power potential
Single alternator- 270A
Weight is 100% concern
caps vs batts, i can save 400lbs by going with caps.
Is 204 3,000F caps enough?
Time is always against us so i'll explain usage-
Burps is fine..
Daily- voltage start point- 13.8v
Shut off point- 9.5v
Having active protection guarantees no electronic failure but does playtime suffer tremendously by doing this?
I see they can recharge quick but how quick with that many and 1 alt?
If i went with batts, i'd have the equivalent of 9 D3100s.
I run low power source because i do not go crazy on doing demos or daily for long periods but ability to burp effectively when necessary.
In this scenario, is play times of 30-60s ideal with about 160-200caps or is batteries still the winner here?
