What does crowbar mean in this context?

If power supply terminal voltage is higher than programmed output, higher than over-voltage limit, it will pull down with transistors to correct the over-voltage. i.e. short battery to ground. Some HP and other brand supplies say to use a diode when charging batteries.

Actually a few condos and apartments may have 208 volts as the complex has 3-phase power but each unit operates on just two of the legs.
I have a condo with this set up. Dryer and range operate at about 10% lower power. Cannot access all three phases.

But ya got two, so if you try hard enough you can generate the 3rd (with some arrangement of transformers).
Or, talk to your neighbors and stuff a wire through the wall.

Seems a bit extreme - just to make rechargeable batteries for my electric wheelchair...

Anyway, this thread seems to have gone all the way to Cuba and back.

End of Hijack.

Thanks guys.
