I'll be watching this one with interest Jem, I've always wanted to convert a kombi. I love the square back, such a practical unit, no idea why the stopped making them. Sadly my last one vanished from a roadside breakdown in Tassie many moons ago, never found where it went too. Good luck with the pro...

auto welding mask

If anyone is thinking of buying an auto darkening welding mask, buy a good one. You can tell the difference by the adjustability, a good one has sensitivity adjustment, delay adjustment and darkness adjustment, all infinite adjustment not a 3 position switch. If you are likely to be doing welding in...

Clueless take 2

The kit Matt pointed me to has a Curtis controller and a HPGC AC50-01 Motor, 52 hp Peak @ 96 volts, 60 hp peak @ 108 volts and judging by the torque chart up around the 550amp mark to get the 60hp. What batteries am I looking for with that sort of discharge capability. The ones I’ve looked at so far...

PayPal?

Nice to have a win every so often. Not sure I would have had the fight in me for $35 though, mine is substantially more than that. keeping my fingers crossed, it's been a 3 mth battle so far and resurrected from the dead 5 times now.

Thank Matt, I checked out that Curtis controller on another site and the 550amp is a 2 min rating. What happens after the 2 mins, does the smoke come out? are there water cooled options with these controllers or are we now heading into the top shelf stuff? I did like the idea of the 108v battery pac...

....and the assist between 1,500 and 2,500rpm. OK. You should get plenty of regen pretty much whatever reasonable motor power you end up with - normally it has to be dialed back a bit. The big question now is how much assist power would you like? More importantly, at what motor RPM do you want peak...

The motor will effectively coupled to the ICE so operating range will be from 1,000rpm to 4,500rpm. The motor speed will be between 0 rpm and 4,500rpm, most like the regen will be more between 4,500max and 1,500 min and the assist between 1,500 and 2,500rpm. Coupling it direct to the tailshaft could...

In any case it will probably work out cheaper and easier to have a 3-phase motor setup to ~140Vac in delta mode. So it won't really matter which size you pick because it is a custom job any way. I would expect any self respecting rewinder could do this job for you. This sets you pack for around 340...

Combining carbon to create methane makes the hydrogen much easier to store and transport, hydrogen caused serious metal embrittlement and leaks through nearly anything. Is it also very difficult to compress and store as a liquid. The technology for liquefying and transporting LNG is almost old scho...

All the vehicles run on methane fuel cells, small resistor packs and small battery packs. The methane is stored in liquid form (LNG) and gas drawn off as required. Massive renewable energy plants remotely situated use the generated power to split water to hydrogen, blow off the oxygen and combine th...

Thanks Coulomb and acmotor, the compressor in question is for a fridge/freezer, the specs are here , it's a Danfoss DB35 and by the specs the COP improves at lower pumping speeds as does the current draw.

This is a general type question. Is there any down sides to running a BLDC at slow speeds? The reason for the question is Danfoss refridgeration compressors use BLDC motors but there COP efficiency can be improved by running them slower than the normal speed they run at using their electronic contro...

The Daihatsu Feroza, you say you've sold the motor and stripped the mechanicals like front diff and gearboxes but do you still have them? An electric 4x4 with an ICE recharge unit till fuel cells becomea reality could be a very interesting project.
