Did a workaround for my Labview problems, so I could continue to do some testing.
The graphs above are the same one as below, but this time I traced it with and without the drop out detect working. We see the same 5 cells drop out.
The drop out detect is looking for the rate of change signature of a drop out in the data.
Some close ups show that the dual running average difference is a good indicator of the rate of change, and works well for detecting too rapid drop off, topping detection on the charge side should work more reliably that the sample timer system.
