Re: Hyundai Maps Self updater

Yeah Richard came over on the weekend to update our Ioniq. I think it's worse on the whole, but for the updated maps.

Re: WA to get $21 Million boost in DC charging infrastructure.

Yeah the Nullarbor sites will require generators, and/or big solar battery systems. And knowing the traffic will be low, they will spend the money elsewhere. But that said, it's only an extra 5 chargers, so they could probably do it if they wanted to, or found some change behind the couch. Could be ...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

Yeah like Novec or some non aqueous material. It still needs to be set in resin for vibration protection though, but you could focus on just setting it on the top and bottom.

I have three of the four modules capture plates made up, so I started to populate one of them. I can leave the cells as they are without needing to pull the whole lot apart this way. Partially assembled module.jpg Each module will store a bit over 6 kWh and sit at 100 V fully charged. And should wei...

You could even set up a load bank like dynamic braking on locomotives.

...or pony up and buy a synchronous AC motor and inverter 🙂

Re: EVs on the up ... and up

Amazingly the cheapest EVs are still $15k or so.
Considering the Leaf was over $50k 8 years ago its not all bad. But cars are just a waste of money, some are bigger wastes than others.

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

I don't have a BMS signal going to the inverter, so it's set up on a User Defined protocol.
And it was looking grand until this morning when it reverted to garbage again. Oh well. Might try and mess with it on the weekend.

Goodwe must have done an over-the-air update on the inverter! Because up until midday yesterday, the SOC was meaningless - it went down as you charged it, it went up as you discharged, and generally made no sense: Updated inverter..JPG And this is today's data: SOC working!.JPG I wonder if this will...

Re: VIC to introduce EV and PHEV road tax

Russell - the rego discount was $100 a year I think, and the RUC would amount to about $250 for 10,000 km a year. So you're a little worse off.

Volume is critical too - if it doesn't fit, it won't matter how much it weighs... And yes agree with Francisco here - the only way you'll get your range goals is to use the most energy dense battery cell chemistry you can lay your hands on.

Your best bet will be an ICV - individually constructed vehicle. It will still call for lots of ADR (Australian Design Rules) compliance, but it's a legit avenue for projects like this.

Re: Electric Car (EV) Home Charger - 32A - Options?

Nothing wrong with only wiring up one of the phases and leaving the rest blank. Just use L1 to keep things simple - L1 on a 3-phase socket elsewhere in the country will probably be live too.
