I was tasked with putting together 24 potentiostats (programmable resistors) to control voltages across 24 'magic batteries'. This is one single system - not independent systems.
These 'magic batteries' (I can't talk about them) have an optimal voltage, yet the voltage changes given environmental influences, so they must be shorted with a resistor to keep the voltage constant.
The typical resistance required is under 100 ohms.
I have a list of ideas on how to do this, but they are all over-complex and not very scalable . . . so I'm looking for other ideas from anyone familiar with potentiostats.
edit: a scientist on my team decided < 100 ohms is better
