AO-40 Power Situation



Peter,
The discussion about the problem on AO-40 brings to mind the question:
Why would we not place 50~70 Amp steering diodes in series with the Main
& Aux battery sets, after the charging circuits, to prevent either from
dragging down the other battery or the power bus? Other than more weight
and another component to fail, is there some good space science that
says no?
Regards,
