Re: Sinusoidal wave brushless motor controller

using documentation available around and documwntation from Kelly, I was able to build this table: https://jumpjack.files.wordpress.com/2019/06/comandi-new.png It summarizes all serial commands I am aware of. I didn't start experimenting yet, anyway I'm going to do that using an ESP32 module rather ...

Connection diagram of an advanced BMS in an EV

They were recently published two interesting documents describing in detail the connections of an "advanced" BMS inside an EV. "Advanced" because it does not just manage the cells, but the whole vehicle, thanks to several contactors and sensors. The BMS comes in two variants: modular (BMS-M12, older...

Power cut issues with Kelly KHB72701

The power arriving to my motor is sometimes cut down from nominal 5 kW to 4 kW, then 3kW, and eventually to 0.8 kW (10A at 80V). BUT Battery is full (80V for a 72V nominal battery). Cells are fine (lowest is at 3.3V, highest is 3.34V) Temperature can vary from 15°C to 35°C when problem arises. Motor...

Random power cut issues

I am encountering some issues on my electric car since some months, and nobody here appears to be able to figure out what is going on, even the shop which sold it to me; they totally replaced the BMS and the service battery, thinking that they could in some way affect the electrical system of the ca...

Re: my 18650 frame pack build

Indeed the INR18650-30Q charts looks very different fromt that on the site I found. Which means that each lithium cell management system must be calibrated for each specific cell variant. According to charts, discharging the cell on the site I found down to 2,5V would be like discharging an INR18650...

Re: Nickel welding strips - current capability ??

The "unadequacy" of spot-welded nickel strips is an urban legend, just like venting hole of old A123 cells, which even led to building nickel strips with a hole to prevent hole from being covered!

Re: Highest capacity 18650 cells

The real cycle life killer for many (not all) cells is high charge rates, especially high charge rates at low cell temperatures. Many cells, especially high capacity cells can be destroyed within a few dozend cycles at 0,5C charge at 0°C. The 35E is only good for 1A charge rate even at 20°C(!). Sou...

Re: Bluetooth 10-15s bms review

Sorry I don't get if somebody was able to reflash the firmware of this BMS.
I also don't understand where the Windows screenshots come from, I only found the Android app.
And finally, is this firmware compatible with this BMS? But where is the original sparkfun BMS? I can't find it.

Regen power depends on battery status: if battery is already fully charged, regen will be 0% to prevent damage to battery. Try experimenting with regen when battery is at 50%. About how the sliders work, this is how I understand it: - brake switch regen: it's a "binary" or "on/off" regen, at fixed p...
