50Ah cells - Bulk Buy

Hi all After several months of evaluating dozens of Chinese battery suppliers, and testing samples from several of them, I've now chosen a battery supplier from which to source 50Ah 3.2V LiFePO4 battery cells for my business. I will be purchasing at least a pallet of them at the end of this week, an...

Masterflux Air Con - Compressor & Controller

This is the one system I never got round to installing - as such it is brand new and unused, still in the original box, but has been sitting in the box in my workshop for a couple of years. Same system as from EV Works: http://www.evworks.com.au/masterflux-sierra-06-0982y3-package-electric-a-c-c $12...

Kia Rio 2004 5-door hatch manual + battery frames

I'm selling the black Kia Rio 5-door hatchback that I converted to an EV and drove for a couple of years. As such all petrol parts have been removed, including the clutch and flywheel. Manual gearbox remains - ready to fit another electric motor. I've removed and sold all the electric drive parts, s...

Working DC Powertrain parts for sale

Righto folks, I've sold the batteries, BMS, charger, cooling system!
I've added pricing to the motor and controller; for the rest assume about half the price of new. Or make me an offer!

Please text or email me as below, as I don't check the forum messenger often enough :-O

Working DC Powertrain parts for sale

The time has come to sell my first EV conversion - the Kia Rio. It's still working, and capable of 110kph on the highway easily, as well as going over the Gateway Bridge. However the batteries are tired and probably need replacing - at least some of them. It has a manual gearbox with clutch removed....

Last time I spoke to them, it was about $1,600/kWh. That will probably come down though as production ramps up in Central/South America (Mexico?)

Lithium charging profiles are not really needed, because the float voltages can be adjusted for Lithium batteries to use the existing charge profiles.

I'm pleased to announce that I am now a distributor for Giant Power, which are effectively the Australian-certified and -warranted version of the PIP-4048MS, as well as the grid-connected version (also with a few minor upgrades - see earlier pages of this topic).

PIP-4048MS inverter

For my 3-phase system design, I'm working on the basis that the DC battery side is isolated from the AC grid side (for charging and discharging) - does this mean I can use 3 hybrid units, one on each phase of the 3-phase power, with common neutral lines, and a common battery system and EMS?!?

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

Thanks Weber, that's awesome! Sorry I thought it would be saved in a folder already, but thanks for the Googling work! I'm working on a concept to use 3 of these for a 3-phase system, without solar, just with batteries - to do "peak lopping" to reduce capacity charges. So your comms control of the c...

+1 for BBB - I was about to suggest it based on Weber's first post last night. My friend builds electronics prototypes for a living - started with Arduino, then went to Rpi, now uses mostly BBB.

If there are specific questions/issues with BBB let me know - I can ask him.

Hi Dave (Weber) - quick question about your BMS please: Is there a deadband for the low voltage alarm that disconnects the load? Ie if the sun is shining but not enough to cover the load and the battery goes (almost) flat, and then the BMS disconnects the load as stage 1 of protecting the battery - ...

Just thought I'd let you guys know about the Solar & Energy Storage conference & expo 13-14 May in Melbourne - seemed relevant to this topic somehow!

3 concurrent streams on solar PV and batteries. Registration is free, I just got flights & accom for $374.
