- how do you properly size balancing resistors?
I understand that when sizing balancing resistors you should consider the power rating of the resistors. The resistance and power rating has to be high enough so that they do not overheat. Even with a large enough power rating, I know that they will effect your overall efficiency since that's just power loss. How do you appropriately size them though? If you have two series resistors, why not place like 2 series 5 MEG resistors across them? Or even higher?
