can you help me model the effect of capacitor to charging a battery using simple 5 mins cycles of low voltages

Hi, i am trying to check the effect of using a capacitor to charge a small 12v battery. I have regulated 0 to 12vd, a 50v10000uF capacitor and a 100ohms 4.7kj resistor to discharge the battery and capacitor between 5 mins test cycles. The battery may be lowered using the resitor to 6 or 7 volt at each start of the 5 mins test cycle.

the connection are made with clips on wire. Volts, amp and temperature are made using portable meters and gun....

I am intending to verify the assumption that powering a battery to charge through a capacitor should be more efficient when we use a minimum charging / varying voltage voltage [1min 9V, 1min 10v, ...11v,...12v and 1min 9v] 5 mins cycles. The battery charge more helped with the capacitor and the component emit less heat compared to the sane cycle without the capacitor. Thanks for suggesting a schematic as I am not specialist at all and i would not like to damage the components, nor hurt anyone.

the intention is to model in small for my son science project the effect of charging large battery banks using vety reactive supercapacitor banks.

This is to aim improving my modifed Twike t3 human hybrid modified to be charged by leg powered (300W max) 12v motor into 12v supercapacitor bank that will charge using a 12v dc converter to 240v AC charger of a bank of Li ipo4 batteries....

i am also curious to get to the circuit whilst i am only a curious mech/civil engineer... Not a electrical pro at all.

Lets focus on the small ultra basic model for my son science project if someone gets a chance to look into this question fir now and within next 10 days to be valid.

Thanks for your attention

kind regards

Francois

Sorry this is not what you want to get as a response;

I do not know what type of battery you are using however I know of none that will survive the duty cycle you are stating.  Super capacitors would work in place of the battery.

I would suggest going to the web and look up batteries, charging circuits and just general information on the type of battery you are using.
