Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

I would not use a Kelly controller for this. Their powerstages are designed like crap and very prone to failing because the MOSFETs don't share current well.

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Guys be careful with this. I read the last 2 posts and have a couple comments. 1 Most EV fuses are slow blow so take that into consideration 2 You should use a smart fuse (Tesla Pyro fuse) 3 The instant regen if you fault the controller is brief and you will be surprised how its a non issue. You can...

Tesla unsuccessfully sued British television show Top Gear for its 2008 review of the Tesla Roadster (2008) in which Jeremy Clarkson could be seen driving one around the Top Gear test track, complaining about a range of only 55 mi (89 km), before showing workers pushing it into the garage, supposed...

Arlo, Awesome build, watched alot of your YouTube videos today. I had a question about your inverters and saw you prefer PMs on this forum, but I think I'm "too new" and it won't let me send PMs. Love the CRX build! It will let you Send PM's But if its related to this EV build at all you should ask...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I think the Model 3 is a lot more fussy about charge adaptors than the S and X. Guy here in Perth has been struggling with his 3 on the Circontrol Trio chargers. About 50% success. Got a bit of a story today from a local with a 2015 leaf. IN 2014/2015 he said someone from Japan came and put all the...

I watched one of Arlin's videos on the Axiom he's using in his Honda and he suggests there might be Torque Vectoring possible/coming?

Why build this boost converter and not just use field weakening ?

Arber, you want to measure after the boost converter, so at the power stages.
Yup boost converter = fail. This is only added losses!

Just because someone else did it doesn't meen its the right way to achieve a goal.
