Can someone explain to me why voltage regulators or boost converters are never used in a substation? When I have sized batteries, the amp-hours calculated assumed the batteries were not usefull after the voltage had dropped down to 70% or whatever. You could get a lot more amp-hours out of the batteries and get by with a lot less if you used something to step up the voltage as the batteries drained.
