.....in order to further my theoretical and practical knowledge of electric vehicles, from the simplest E-Bike, right up to the most sophisticated and complicated large EV, such as cars
Specifically, I am talking textbooks, college texts, basic high-school electronics texts, beginner electronics or electrical-engineering texts, diagnostic tools from the simplest fluke meter or bread-boards right up the line to oscilloscopes etc
I have a Law Degree from University College Dublin, so I can digest large amounts of information and I have learned how to sift through material and get out the essence from amongst the voluminous guff.
Basically, I am trying to branch out into a new career. I would like to combine my legal background with something more practical, I am going to apply for a job in an electric vehicle retailer in Ireland, and pretty much offer to work at their most lowly job for jack-shit money, maybe $400 a week for a whole pile of hours. I would like to be able to learn the theory, the sort of stuff you guys already know by heart, but I don't want to spend three years in a college or an evening school, because I already have a primary degree and I don't think I have that sort of time or energy any-more at the age of 33.
Please regard this as a sincere request for assistance from somebody who is now at a cross-roads in their life and wants to push on into a new sphere of activity- probably the first sphere of activity which I would not regard as a job or as work, but rather as fun.
When I first came onto this forum I knew nothing. Okay so I still know nothing but now I know I know nothing.
I know how to make a battery pack, insulate it, wire balance-taps, cut torque arms, figure out basic phase/hall sequences, understand some EMF and BEMF theory and practice, figure out throttle and 3-speed wiring, understand phase-amps and battery-amps, do basic trouble-shooting, and get a working system up and running. Thats a lot more than I knew a few years back. But I want to know what you guys know- the theory, the hacking, the physics, the real substance, and not be just some guy who is a few steps ahead of a noob in the street. I come on here and I look at Luke, Amberwolf, Fechter, Dogman, Arlo, etc etc etc and guys are talking about gate-drivers and weak algorithms and all manner of stuff. High end stuff. Thats where I want to be. As I say, please regard this as a genuine request for help from a guy who is turning his back on a past-life and is going to take a financial ass-whipping in order to embrace this new field of endeavour. Just tell me what I need to buying and what I need to be reading and I will go and do it
Many thanks indeed. Your help is sincerely appreciated.
