I recently fitted a new PWM solar regulator to my caravan. According to the instructions, the frequency can be set at 25, 50 or 100 hertz, but it doesn't say what difference it makes to anything by changing the settings. Can anyone advise me why I might want to alter this frequency, will a different frequency improve the charge rate?

Do you know what the PWM stands for ? it means pulse width modulation, in other words it pulses on and off and the frequency setting depends how fast it does that, to detremine what setting, turn on a radio powered from the 12 volt sockets, when it is charging the battery ,if you can hear static turn the frequency down
