You'll need to set up some sort of regulator to control the voltage and current. The problem is that I doubt your motor has provisions for varying the field current.

You'd do better with the alternator off of a car. Get a GM alternator and they have built in regulators.

You can get fuse blocks at most auto or marine supply stores.

What voltage are your batteries ?
96v seems high for batteries,
or do you have a bank of batteries ?
You will need a voltage regulator !
What safety concerns do you have ?
