I am doing a heavy vehicle project and putting a regenerative braking system into the vehicle. It also has a supercapacitor module in parallel with the battery (which has the same voltage), and the goal is to
- Share the current during acceleration (s1 and s2 closed)
- Charge the supercapacitor (only) during braking (s1 open and s2 closed)
Because I am a student and have limited money, I don’t want to blow up anything. Will this circuit work as I want it to be? Also, does this circuit need a dc-dc converter?
Battery: 12 V 10 ah
Supercapacitor: 15 V (only using up to 12 V) 55 Farad
Switch: 30 V 10 A relay with diodes
Motor: 775 DC Motor
H bridge: DROK L298 Dual H Bridge
I would really appreciate some type of help and if interested, I can share more pictures of the project.
