Hello everyone,

I am having one specific problem, and I can not think of a good solution.

I would like to boost the instant power of a 24V battery, by putting 10 super capacitors in series.

Super capacitor specifications are: 2.7V, 30F. Tolerance -20, +80%.

The problem is, since the tolerance for capacity can be from -20% to 80%, that somehow I must ensure that voltage on each capacitor must not exceed 2.5V.

The simplest solution I was thinking about is to put the zenner diode of 2.5V in parallel with each capacitor. But I can not find on the web zener diodes which would be reliable enough, because I would pick the one that can take at least 1Amp of continuous current, and about 5Amp peek.

The maximum current of a battery is about 7 Amps when short circuited.

Do you have some suggestion about some diodes I am not aware of, or maybe you have a totally new original idea for this problem.

Every help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Stypie
