FS:Tesla/VW/Outlander BMS Master

For Sale: BMS Master: SIMP-BMS Price: 300 Euros excluding shipping I have developed a BMS Master board capable of controlling multiple slaves. You need OEM battery monitoring slave boards to use this The starting point for this BMS is to keep it simple, the BMS will not prevent you from harming your...

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

having been dusting off the controller. However now it wont even spin the motor. All calibrations run without an issue. However it sometimes will not go out of drive 1 or keep flashing the led and not power the stage up. The hex is below. version:293_ 0x0133 0xFFFF 0xFFFF 0x0503 0x03C2 0x0001 0x0001...

Lebowski and Arlo1, thank you for this kind advise. I could have also realized this myself since I have been busy building a BMS with current shunt.

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v

Thanks Lebowski, I will give that a try.

Need to figure out what changed to make it all of a sudden not work because I need a reliable solution. So to reset all values you enter "1" is that one of the many secrets this chip has? :)

Re: Lebowski's motor controller IC, schematic & setup, new v

So my setup with 1K R and 10nF resistor is fine.

Will keep debugging my setup.
If all else fails I will have a play with the Rinehart PM150DX I got laying around

I just noticed that the first schematic dictates a rough estimation for the RC filter for the current sensors, My current setup is 1k resistor and 10nf cap However im just running 4K Hz pwm so I would need to be at a 4K resistor instead of a 1K, would this make a big difference? Tomorrow I will stri...

Cool Project. One thing missing is why are you building it and what is your budget? I did some cad puzzling with different frames I found on the internet, one of them is a duc monster frame. Way too narrow to use for alot of batteries. One thing to look into is having the motor sprocket inline with ...

The lebowski chip is closed firmware and only magnet motors.

Here is a link to the Huebner controller, is all open source.

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

The idea behind taking an OEM controller is taking just the expensive bits, so the powerstage. Capacitors, Igbts, drivers and current sensors. Then you hook up your own flavor of controller, currently aware of the Lebowski variant for BLDC position sensor less or with hall and the Johannes huebner h...

Lebowski, thank you for helping out. And also all the other guys. I was about to throw the towel in before Christmas, but it was nagging me that something basic must have been missing. I did a evening of tracing the connectors on the oem logic board. Turns out the current sensors are connected with ...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

i think that running it at partial load (thus partial amps) will result even higher efficiency, oops noticed you did run lower load :) . Also the efficiency is measured at the dyno brake, what is between the motor and the dyno that could result in losses? This motor would be a good match for the Joh...

Re: Assembled Hi-Power LiPo battery packs - any interest?

What kind of vehicle would you be trying to market these too? 50ah gives you roughly 20 kwh at 345V so quite low for a car conversion. Would you mind sharing some sizes and rough weights? Plus what kind of pricing would you be thinking about? These cells do look promising in terms of a good balance ...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

The motor can probally take more voltage or more current. If you want to find out what it can take just start raising the voltage to the limit of the controller. Why are you using such a low voltage controller? For short bursts you van easily get the motor to take more current, did you hook up cooli...

Turns out the torque is quoted at engine crank and not alternator.

Are you pushing the full current that the Curtis can produce through it?

Now currently the v2.9 chip only gives me an overflow error. A chip on version 2.5 just hangs after the FOC test. Can the calcu...
