Abstract

In certain mobile applications, it is desirable to have radio equipment operated from a lead-acid battery other than the vehicle battery. For these applications, a charging system must be provided to keep the system battery charged at all times. The use of passive isolation diodes is possible, but installation in many vehicles is inconvenient. An active self-contained battery charger is an effective solution.
