Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

The Lebowski controller is BLDC. Been there and all but begged him to figure the code for the ACID. Paul Holmes has an ACID controller as a DIY or preassembled without the power section, I believe, and Johannes Huebner has another. Huebners needs the encoder board added. Holmes might have added code...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

You are correct, it's called BAS + (Belt Alternator Starter) system. In 2009 was the last year, then, 2012 was the new Gen 2 E-assist system. Melon, which do you have then, Gen 1 or Gen 2 ? I thought about getting a Gen 2 controller/inverter, but, they are located in 2-3 different areas of the cars....

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

The Gen 1 is a permanent magnet alternator operating on 36V. It was very weak compared to the Gen 2 at 115V.

Re: DIY Super Capacitors, and Robert Murray-Smith

I watched a video last night from a guy that took activated carbon and ground it with a coffee grinder. Then used 2 mesh sifters and shook them over his kitchen sink, allowing the very fines to be washed down the drain. ? Then he used the next coarser ground stuff to "attach" to 2 aluminum plates us...

Re: 700 mile charge in 1 minute

I took a stab at calculating the battery pack needed for 700 miles, then figured 450 Whrs/mile and my calculator went blank. Have to figure what voltage and amperage before calculating, then figure in 1 minute charge ?? I just don't see it happening.

At hillhater Yes you have to sync the 2 inverter sine waves.

Re: 24V/48V UPS as an inverter for mini power-wall

I have 2 of the older 24v 1400 Kva SMART APC UPS's. They put out a true sine wave. I believe I can parallel them to get twice the amp capacity and add computer fans and use them as my inverter for my partial off grid system with Chevy Volt modules. You tube has some really smart people that show how...

Too poor the buy another welder. This is wired with 10 Ga directly from 120-240v line from the house 3/2 twist service cable. It's flux wire because it's 56 miles 1 way to get a bottle of shield gas and no vehicle.That's why I'm building the reverse trike. Always worked well and used to do a good jo...

Boost 110v AC to 120v AC or slightly more

The power company down here keeps the voltage on the house side to around 108-112v. I keep after them to boost it up to 120v or so, where it should be. As long as I am the only one complaining, they just ignore me. As anyone with AC voltage knows, 108-112 is extremely low. In my shop when I try to u...

Re: Rubber cushion drive in rear motorcycle wheel

I think I would look at it the other way around. Is there anything to be gained by removing it?
Yes, there are 5 of the fingers to be removed, and, no way to attach it to a flat disc to bolt it to the wheel. I also reduce nearly 1.5 inches of width so it all fits in the swingarm.

Re: Rubber cushion drive in rear motorcycle wheel

This will be a toothed belt similar but more stout than a timing belt. No shifting under load and a 3 to 1 ratio for less stress at takeoff.

Will wait for a few more comments and appreciate those already posted.

Thanks guys.

Re: Using an old car alternator to generate electricity...

Dauntless, he stated it was a 1981 auto and he posted under alt energy section. According to my search, it's a 50A alternator.

OEM wants to build stuff as cheap as possible.
