I see that schematics for providing over voltage regulation on internally regulated alternators have been scrubbed: http://www.aeroelectric.com/DIY/DIY_Crowbar_OVP_F.pdf

Looks like the last rev was in 2005. Has there been any changes in thinking in the last 14 years as to the use of internally regulated alternators? Is there possibly an example of this safety features use on an IR alternator I can see so I can at least have the information? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

After finding Z-24 I wonder if leaving the ebus alt feed closed normally would help with load dumps for in flight switching off of the alternator?

The easiest solution is to turn off the engine first when shutting down.

Adding to the questions, are there any negatives to leaving the e-bus alt feed closed for normal operations? Or would an additional diode between the e-bus alt feed and diode be prudent to avoid alternators trying to charge the battery through the alt feed?

Most of the battery charging current will come through the battery contactor.
Very little, if any will pass through the E-Bus diode. Another diode between
the battery and E-Bus is not desired because it will drop voltage. Not good if the battery voltage is low.

Awesome, thank you.
