Re: tractor conversion

Hello
I installed a regen and reversing contactor on my tractor, and now i need to adjust brush timing to near zero, what is efficiency gain with advanced timing vs neutral?
The voltage and rpm is low but the amps are high.

Re: Calb lifepo4 battery for half price ?

I order 32 pieces today and the seller charged me with 239 US$ on top of the price for the 30 % shipping cost increase :(
still good price if the tax for EU is included
He also sell CATL 200 Ah for almost the same price.
The CATL lifepo4 batteries will be in tesla model 3 for chines market.

I think the dc/dc is a cheaper option too, you need to fabricate a mount and belt for alternator + bigger traction motor and battery

Re: tractor conversion

Right! I have hils on my farm and when I disperse manure I always go downhill and the engine breaks so I need regen. I'm looking at this controller: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Programmable-DC-Series-Motor-Controller-Zapi-Replacement-H2B-A8H268-80V-600A/383010741394?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item592d381c...

Re: tractor conversion

ah, what you are asking is very difficult with a series wound motor to achieve speed regulation would mean powering the field winding directly (ie 2V or so at 500A). you might get away with doing this with a 12v controller, powered off your 12v battery, though you would be controlling this manually...

Re: tractor conversion

The Voltage is around 72 V.
It's not so much getting the energy, back, it's maintaining constant rpm during downhill.
In low gear you could easily explode the motor.

Zoe R motor has a spare 400 V connector in the back where you can connect solar pannels directly to the battery , no inverters :) But you have to be careful, the car must be on or the positioning lights must be on, so that the car will not go to "sleep" and diskonnect's the main contactor, if that h...

Re: tractor conversion

An encoder is only needed it you want fine torque control. On a tractor you could probably get away with either speed control only, or course torque control that running open loop without an encoder would offer thank you !
