Re: DIY conversion kit.

looks like a great budget kit - I've never seen AC so cheap

30kw doesn't sound like much, but it'll get 1100kg to 100kmh in 20 seconds or so, which doesn't sound like much, but is plenty driveable

you'd definitely want to keep the gearbox though

Excellent work

That means scheduled charging will be much easier to implement too, as it can be done by the evse

Re: Power outages and charging

Does anyone know if there is a power outage will my mg ev automatically start charging again? best way would be to go to a dealership, get them to charge from a normal power point, and simulate a power outage by turning the power point off, give it 5 mins, then turn it back on to see what the mg go...

dewalt putting the batteries in series is interesting - the BMS inside the dewalt batteries must be capable of breaking the full 120v (very unusual)

Re: Burned BLDC controller

what's the application? 30A is quite small for a 120V system if you go the repair route, drive a light globe first with a power limited source (another light globe in series with the battery does the trick) that means if you have other issues, you are far less likely to blow something up usually in ...

I have been thinking making it V2H capable. The plan is to connect an inverter via the DC charge port. I am going to make an isolated bidirectional DC link and feed the output to a solar inverter via the solar panel inputs and the solar panels will go to my converter. So that way I can feed the hou...

Re: Charging issues

The 7 hour charge time would be with a 7kw charge point. There's a few options for that, cheapest being a 32A power point and a portable charge cable.

Charging off a normal power point at 8A or 10A does take 3 or 4 times longer. If it's still fast enough for you, I wouldn't spend the money for faster

Though compression being non-linear, 70bar is more than 10% of 700bar in terms of amount of H2 stored to elaborate on this a little more, according to this paper, density to pressure ratio starts to drop measurably at around 100bar - https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1702/1702.06015.pdf 70 bar = 5...

But 10% of 666 km might mean ≈50 km usable, like a severely depleted first generation Leaf or iMiEV.
