Haupt[auf]ladung, Erhaltungsladung

It would certainly help if you provided some more context. A whole sentence wouldn't hurt, and it would help to know what's being discussed. I assume it's Batteries?

Charger = Ladegerät
principal charge = Hauptaufladung or Hauptladung, possibly also Erstaufladung (if it's the initial charge) or just "nach dem Laden..."

compensation charging (context: batteries) = Erhaltungsladung
