    3DOF, DC motor, Arduino
    Question:

    Going to get the 160A Server Power Supply, What Size Amp hour battery should i pair to it?

    After talking with some collegues today we have come to the conclusion that:

    The battery will really only be utilized for regenerational spikes and other than that the power supply will be supplying the current overall so the battery size shouldnt need to be huge and the whole system will just sit at 12v, Is that correct?

    I would still need to put either a diode or have a cutoff so when the power supply shuts off the battery doesnt back feed the power supply correct?

    Last but not least, Should i put my relay to cut power, before the drivers or between the motors and drivers?


    Cheers
