Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

Haha guys slow down please... i want to ABuse Prius inverter. I will not use it as it was intended. Instead i want to keep top transistor open to conduct in both directions and use Lebowski brain with FW to power the motor. BUT while car will be charging i want to use this halfh bridge to charge the...

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

Amber this needs to be isolated! That's why I posted the circuit! Depends on how far reaching you want your power stage blowup to be :wink: Arber, i dont really understand the distinction beween the 400 and 650, but the controller ic needs to see the power stage supply voltage. :?: I guess my comme...

Nope, Prius driver stage takes care of this for me. I just reap the fruits of its labour :). It is similar to Volt driver stage, even better protected.

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

Arber, I think you misunderstand. When you want to deal with a 400 V battery you need to divide this voltage down by a factor 80. The controller IC will then work correctly for battery voltages between 200 and 400V, as these map in the 2.5 - 5 V range. You should not map 0 - 400V on 2.5 - 5V ! You'...

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

Ah and you use resistors to set the division for your viable input range. I get it! No need to worry about 2.5V range if you are never there. Thank you Arlo. However i am working now on Prius inverter and it has nice 0 - 5V voltage detection output which describes 0V - 650Vdc on the HV side and 0V -...

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v2.A1

Hi Lebowski What kind of circuit would you use with analog voltage signal 0-5V for values from 0-400Vdc? You say your circuit only sees signal from 2.5V to 5V. That would mean i can only use signal from 200V to 400V! Could i translate 0-5V signal to 2.5-5V effectively? Suggestion? Should i use one A...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

I think i used 1 kOhm and 10 nF in the (single) current sensor lines... for two sensors each sensor would need its own 2.2kOhm resistor in series with its output and then connect to the 10 nF. The resistor is a bit higher because two 2.2kOhm's in parallel is roughly 1 kOhm. This way by using equal ...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Dont thjnk parallelling two output stages is a problem, but I would definitely use all 6 current sensors then ! You can add the current sensor outputs using resistors. Hm... so i could just connect sensors in the same order they are connected to outputs. I.e. sensor A1 of one IPM would be parallel ...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Point 1 may still be caused by motor resistance not correct, you will need to experiment a bit. Or have a look in the saved conkout data (main menu y, only if you online saved else itll just be the old data) to see what happened. About takeoff, if at full current the torque is not enough it wont go...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

Interesting drive in what way ? There was lots of power available once motor started reving. From the stop however i would still have to start with 1st or 2nd. 3rd would stall the motor. Is that just the way FOC works or are there some settings to file out...? Also like i said if i would take the m...

Re: Ampera/Volt inverter with Lebowski brain

I spend some time in Mazda RX8 yesterday. I did like you said and corrected/updated all menus. I put 300A to field weakening, some 75% and i found out motor wanted to turn to 9000rpm on 200Vdc! I reduced erpms then to 35kerpm and it is turning healthy up to 8Krpm. After a short but interesting drive...

Re: Adding halls to BLDC motors

You power two motor phases to align and lock position of rotor and then zero the sensor by shorting a set of zeroing pads. At least on RMC22 sensor, guess same here. works beautifully :D Exactly that! But i figured also that Lebowski controler can find and correct a bit of offset if you just use ze...

Re: Adding halls to BLDC motors

That's pretty cool. Looks like you could use that on almost any motor. I think they made it just that way because you always have access to the rear shaft somehow. Sensor outputs UVW signal as well as ABZ encoder signal for usual inverters. You just have to select correct wires. It is supplied by 5...
