I have a single phase 5KW generator connected to a diesel engine capable of producing approx 3500 Watts of power
I need to convert the 240V AC to DC in order to send it to my solar charge controller that can accept anything up to 600V DC. It then converts it to 48V DC to charge my battery bank. The generator is 300 feet away from the battery bank and charge controller
I understand that I need to rectify it to get DC, but I also need to smooth the ripples out as much as possible for the charge controller to be happy first.
The charge controller and battery bank are connected to a grid tied inverter. I will be exporting the power to the grid. My generator has no ability to sync to grid.
My question is what components do I need (capacitor values) in order to reduce the ripples? I'd also like to filter out as much AC noise as possible
I appreciate any insight you may have
Thanks for your time
