Re: Tesla PW2

The battery and the 5kW inverter is definitely built-in to the same enclosure (with the big a$$ Tesla logo on it). The 'Gateway' box, from what the installer told me (and also from Tesla's block diagram) contains a 'switch'. I'm guessing this is a remote controlled switch (controlled by the PW2) as ...

Tesla PW2

Damn this guy called Elon Musk. He hit my weak spot. I have this unhealthy addiction to anything battery powered and inverters. When one combined them both, then who am I to resist? Need to remortgage the house for this, hence, my family will live on boiled water and salt from now on (powered by PW2...

Re: Where to source electrical hardware

Good point, I've never seen such a high current rated relays (for AC circuit). Looks like you need to go the hard way, i.e. 2-off high current contactors (much easier to get) with modified control circuit (so that one contactor closes where the other opens).

Re: More radio interviews!

Hi Chris, I thought I'm the optimist one. For Australia to have 100% of new car sales either hybrid, PHEV, and/or BEV by 2025 is optimistic indeed. Norway is at 50% at the moment, but our politicians is indeed not as 'wise' as the Norwegians. Let's hope the market is...

Synergy charging stations - WA

I wonder who headed up the new City of Swan fast DC charger. Judging from the no discussion here, not from AEVA then?

It's good news either way, and being in Midland, that's a perfect spot for my degrading Leaf trying to go to Swan Valley!

Thanks q4qber. Looks like Synergy is getting really serious in the EV charging business.

Does anyone know the 22kW listed (Subi) can actually deliver? No card all for free? Wow!

Anyone have hard data on how much internal impedance increase on their cells against cycle life (or maybe in the form of voltage droop)? My e-Bike battery has passed 1000 cycles (1037 at the moment) and for the first time ever in the middle of stormy ride yesterday my BMS cut off at the 75% (8.7Ah o...

Hydrogen

It would be ground breaking if there is a portable (or not so portable for industrial scale) device to convert Ammonia to H2 (and vice versa) safely. Unless, someone managed to find a material that enable batteries with energy density that is cost effective to transport (complete with LCOE to boot)....

Yup, there used to be awesome one from imowa including detailed dissection from different generators (you can drill down to which Muja power station, Colgar wind farm, etc).

But that has been taken down now. I've managed to save some screenshots for example here: Click Here

Interesting PHEV article - (non-Mitsubishi but!)

When anyone do the math for transport (regarding energy use and/or cost), one will be quickly convinced that lugging more than a tonne of metal with them for personal transport is simply not sustainable (regardless the energy source).

It's a pity Evans Electric never took off. I thought this little company would take over the world couple years ago. Looks like the battery needs to be cost effective first before anything else .

Some real data on battery fires

Wow, thanks for the link to the report. I've been asking myself about this for a long time now, at last! There are lots of other reports regarding toxicity, but simply too academic and made my head hurts.

Especially regarding HF concentration. It's good to see it in comparison with other gases.

PV diversion EV charger

Yea, that's the pity bit. I'm expecting the charger to cut out completely (or as an option) when there is no spare 1500W. Better than nothing. I presume this is the limitation set by the charging standard (chademo / AC fast charger / etc).
