Title: BATTERY CHARGE VOLTAGE COMPENSATING SYSTEM AND METHOD OF OPERATION
Abstract:
A vehicle electrical system comprises a generator providing electrical power to a first and a second electrical subsystems at a regulation voltage. A control device ascertains the voltage of the first electrical subsystem, the voltage of the second electrical subsystem, and/or the electrical current to the second electrical subsystem and utilizes a switch module to ensure that the voltage of the first electrical subsystem remains at a predetermined voltage. The control device may be further configured to regulate the output voltage of the generator at the regulation voltage and further to change the regulation voltage as a function of the generator output voltage and voltage of the second electrical subsystem and/or as a function of the electrical current to the second electrical subsystem.
