Morningstar’s PWM solar charge controller features a diversion mode for managing battery charging by diverting energy from a hydro source the battery to a dedicated diversion load. Excess energy diverts from a primary battery to a secondary battery or alternate DC resistive load to protect against battery overcharge. The PWM reduces power into diversion load during overcurrent conditions.
