Good stuff Dennis and though this controller is not the best quality the safe circuit did work and since I ride the hybrid often I'm glad it's not down awaiting a new controller.Bleeder resistors are used and the only problem with using them is, every time the device is turned on there is a high-in-rush current sent to
the cap(s). A high value supply resistor is used in used around a power relay that supplies current to the cap(s). Some equipment depending
on the application like a HP transmitter used a delay circuit for applying voltage to the caps which bypasses a resistor that is across the relay
contacts. When the delay relay times out the relay contacts close and the caps get the full voltage applied to them without the high inrush current.
A DC supply system is easier to work with versus an AC supply. I am sure the controller has a safeguard circuit built into it for protection.
