If you have a suitable alternator, IMO it is best to directly charge your battery with that, rather than using a 240V generator + charger, which is much more expensive than a motor + alternator, and is what I used for many years when I had a 24V battery....
I am hoping to do similar.. make maximum use of. the technology within charge controllers.
We.are already doing battery charging, using large 24v transformers and bridge rectifiers into charge controllers.. the hope is to replace the transformer with the Alternator..
Just got to find a good alternator..
