Existing devices for the management of electric storage modules in renewable energy power stations known as charge controllers are usually developed around the principle of controlling the voltage or current delivered by the generators for the charging of batteries. However, it is known that if the total power requested by different receivers (loads) connected to the batteries is greater than the power that can be provided by the batteries, there will be a rapid and deep damageable discharge of the batteries. A module is proposed here, which, apart from doing what existing charge controllers do, can also control the power delivered by the batteries to the loads.
