Roland W, i've had a look through your videos and it looks like you are using relays to turn your chargers on/off rather than modulating based on available power?
Yes, I am using chargers with fixed power output, and remove the excess as it is available. It would be similar to divert into hot water tank using fixed resistant heaters.
It works well for me. I am cycling my pack almost every day. And using of the shelf chargers is extremely cost effective.
For me there is no point to modulate something to keep it steady around a zero line. I am going for the big chunks. You just need to use chargers which are sized correctly to the amount of excess you typically have. And using more and different chargers, gives you more levels.
