Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

At one point Lebowski was recommending an L/R ratio of 1e-3, I don't think that is still current but the point I am making is that the suggestion at the time was to increase R to achieve that not reduce L. It is established that the controller can not measure stator resistance perfectly so we know ...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

True! I will get rid of all the filtering ASAP. Also i will route the sensor cable away from motor. Currently it goes via direct route from motor rear end to the inverter which is like a meter or so. Also i have the cable grounded only at one end, at the inverter. I will try to ground it also at the...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Finally new mount is in. It was done propperly like i should have done before :roll: https://leafdriveblog.wordpress.com/2020/11/10/busted-rear-mount/ Now i tried again with 220uH and 100mOhm setting and i found out that motor can start rather smoothly although minimum power. Then at some 45km/h (ma...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

That is really strange, that feature is intended for situations where there is sudden acceleration like when a off road dirt bike looses traction going over a jump or similar. It should not be necessary to use that feature to get you Leaf motor to run smoothly which I expect is the reason Lebowki d...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Try setting it back to 230mH and stator resistance to say 100mOhms and disable Hall assisted sensorless and take it for a test drive. I know Arlin lowered stator inductance down to get maximum horse power but I think you will get better behaviour from the motor if you set it closer to its actual va...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Hm... interesting. Last weekend i went on and started to calibrate like you said. Over 100 samples patiently collected with small steps of +/-1,5deg. Curiously the final value kept moving away from me in steps of 1 or 2deg. Then finally i lost my patience and commanded a 10deg step. I collected more...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Really appreciate this thanks! Yesterday i was driving and calibrating hall sensors. First i tried to calibrate them with my wheel up. I got very different results. One time i managed to get a fast response from the motor on start. I got 3 sensors at 7 confidence and 3 at 6. Otherwise they are all 6...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

That is good news. I took a look at your config file and noticed you had 11.35 degrees error with standard deviation of over 23 degrees in your Hall signals. Good that you have re-tuned them, you should be able to get the error down to 1 degree or so. It is not a bad idea when tuning the Hall error...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

OK i think i got the car to takeoff much better now. What i did was change g) sub g to 12 and there it was running the best. I also recalibrated hall sensors menu. and lowered some transition values from mode 2 to 3. In the beginning there is a slight shake or undecision and a little roughness but i...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Lifting one wheel off the ground should be sufficient to run the motor in sensorless mode. It may pay to raise the mode 2 --> 3 erpm so you can get the motor run continuously in mode 2. The start in the YT video looks pretty good but hard to say for sure because of the music in the background. Have...

Re: Show off your lebowski controller

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Here are my settings in hex format. I have changed the g menu value to 5 and i think i get smoother takeoff. However when i played with throttle curves i got different results from same settings. Strange. My throttle is 1.3 3 0 My regen is -0.3 0 0 Doesnt that mean it is ok? 1.3 - (-0.3) is essentia...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

I will post my file... Currently my motor is in a car and i want to keep it there :). It runs really good. But i need to tune up the transistion. Do you think i can do that with one wheel in the air? I think when unloaded motor does not show the same indecision at start. This only happens when i loa...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

YA! It is much better. I used PLL value 50 and tried as low as 35 and i think 50 is better. I kept filtering at 0.88. Then i increased 2nd order parameter "g" in menu G from 0.3 to 1.8! It immediately felt smoother traction though acceleration was not all that great from 0 to 30. I guess l...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

It is that below 300 erpm range that you need to get running as smooth as possible to get clean transitions from drive mode 2 to drive mode 3. I have found that for high pole pair count hub motors that the default settings always work exceptionally well but in low pole pair motors like the IPM moto...

Please tell me what parameter you did setup for a smooth start. Right now i have very good pull after 10km/h and insanely good after 30km/h. But before that from standstill there is some shaking like motor couldnt decide to which side it wants to turn to. Lowering the transition further wont do sinc...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Great news. Does that mean that those rumbling noises you thought were coming from the leaf motor were mechanical all along and nothing to do with the Lebowski parameters? Exactly! CV shaft was rubbing on the edge of CV tripod casing. Whenever the three lips of the casing would come near the shaft ...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Well, remember when i said i had siezed LH CV joint tripod bearings? Well that was not true. Rather i made a dumb mistake when copying the length and forgot to pull out on the tripod so it would be extended like in its natural position. Instead i just copied it in the innermost position with wheels ...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

I still havent changed the CV joint, but i changed motor settings. I used 75uH and 48mR like Arlo mentioned in one of his earlier posts. This setting gave more power from start and ability to spin rubber. However there is still shaking in control when starting from 0 and this causes delay. I noticed...

Well the first time I went fast I got to 100km/h on GPS. But now I am a bit reluctant to try more before I get the retention plate in. Otherwise motor still wanted to pull at that speed.
