Some comments on LFPs & AGM run together

yes i remember that thread. id have to disagree that 72v 180AH will be any better than 144v 90AH though, unless the controller wasnt actually capable of maintaining rated motor side current (which is what gives acceleration off the line). unless there isnt enough motor inductance to maintain continu...

EV Run to Canberra AGM 2009

ouch.

when i went to kenards to borrow a car trailer to move my prelude wreck, they wouldnt let me take it without written documentation that my uncles landcruisers tow ball (which had its own suspension) was rated to 1500kg.
they really werent kidding it seems.

have a look at what the FETs (i assume for such a low voltage controler theyd b using FETs) are rated to. u might only have a part number, so google can help.
have a look at the caps, see what theyre rated to.
ditto for the logic power supply.

most controllers can be over-volted a litlle.

Some comments on LFPs & AGM run together

Richo: how would switching between 72v 180AH and 144v 90AH help with peak power output? surely the switching losses at low duty cycles cant be that significant? Tuarn: how are you measuring the 20% between 3.7v and 4.2v? is the 20% in AH or wh? is that 3.7v at 0.05A and 4.2v at 0.05A? it just doesn'...

30 40AH,
should be good for 10kw.

HINT: do insulate and do 2x full (ie 1C to 2.6v) discharge-recharge cycles right before the event.
get those cells toasty, they then might be good for 20kw.

its a series wound motor rated to 48v.
increase the voltage, increase the speed.
same thing us EV'ers do with everything.

for a point of reference, the kostov 11" that white zombie used to use is rated to 36v, doesnt stop us putting 200v through it (except for maybe the arcing).

A123 batteries in a Razor scooter

just one more point.
A123 cells are 3.2v nominal not 3.6.
so for 36v, you will need 12 cells (there are only 10 in a dewalt "36v" pack).

oops my math is a bit off...1400v 5AH would mean 880 cells or there abouts.

lol, yeh it is a few.
i was thinking 600 of those K2 26650P cells Ian reviewed, 1400v 5AH = 7kwh.
twice range of a vectrix....oh to dream lol

i might be a bit wishful in thinking a 5.75kw motor could do 9000rpm, though tuarn bench tested a 2kw one i think? at 9000rpm.

if you are going to go for chain drive, make sure you either use a motor intended for a chain drive, or reinforce the motor for side loading. most motors aren't designed with side loading in mind. The bearings will wear out much faster if you dont account for side loading. im liking the aprilla RS12...

Hi Karl, Welcome to the association. 2000E+shipping is $AUD3800+shipping which is alot of money for what your are proposing. for that amount you can buy a factory built electric scooter that already passes local regulations, has 3500w and does 60kmh, then modify it with lithium for 5000w and 70kmh. ...
