SOLVED - 48V Li-Ion shuts itself down at ~45V

The problem was a dead cell. The procedure I followed to diagnose the problem: 1. Checked group voltages via the bms leads Result: group 5 was low voltagessm.png 2. Tested group 5 with liitokala lii-500 using a dummy cell and the bms leads. Result: 7.20 Ah This indicates that only 3 of the 4 cells w...

Re: 48V Li-Ion shuts itself down at ~45V

Thank you amberwolf for citing all the possibilities. I hadn't even considered the charger.
Open-it-up day will have to wait for sometime after the 25th when the house gets quiet again. Unnecessary distractions would not be helpful.

Re: 48V Li-Ion shuts itself down at ~45V

amberwolf replies: Most wattmeters I've seen have an Aux input for a battery to sustain them when mainpower is cut. It doesn't help in this case. Vmin is zero, not the value an instant earlier. If you're using a simple resistive load, then as the voltage drops, so does the current being drawn, so th...

48V Li-Ion shuts itself down at ~45V

My battery is a generic 48V 10.5Ah on an ebike with 5800 km on it. Recently the BMS has started shutting the motor off whenever V drops to about 45 V. I can't tell exactly because my wattmeter resets itself when the supply drops to zero. I can replicate its behaviour using a resistive load indoors. ...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive -- Flexible OpenSource firmware for TongSheng TSDZ2 mid drive motor

linklemming asked What stock firmware are you talking about? Sorry I wasn't clear. I meant the original firmware from Tongshen. The numbers I mentioned are based on their sales literature from a couple of years ago. I was impressed at the time because human perception of effort is a roughly logarith...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive -- Flexible OpenSource firmware for TongSheng TSDZ2 mid drive motor

linklemming writes I can definately feel difference between assist 1(0.5) and 2(1.0) but 3-5(1.5,2.0,2.5) seem the same unless I intentionally barely use the pedals (low cadence, low pressure) The stock firmware uses torque assist levels of 0.4, 0.75, 1.5, and 3.0 Note the progression, each step is ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

crun said: I think that working with the stock XH18 would be very beneficial*, which has very much the same requirement: you can config the motor eeprom using LCD3/Phone/PC/STLink+default-eeprom-hex-files, then it will run with stock XH18 (or in your case no display), and only needs to get the assis...

Advantage of high cadence?

Can anyone explain to me the advantage of spinning the pedals at a high cadence? Numbers have been mentioned as high as 120rpm. There are two reasons I ask. First, any text on bio-mechanics tells us that muscles are strongest when they're stationary and get weaker as he speed of contraction increase...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

<snip> The point is if something unexpected happens and the wheel stops suddenly then your motor is toast, and that is a design flaw. <snip> The manufacturer should be doing something about it. People are breaking their motors with very little use, some are so worried that they are stockpiling part...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Its amazing how everyone needs or wants something different ..... exactly !.. most users expect slightly different results from their bike experience. It also depends on what you have been used to in the past. Many of us have come from a "throttle based" control set up , ( both Ebike and ICE) where...

Add a datalogger?

Hello everyone. This is my first post to Endless Sphere. I installed a TSDZ2 on my bike last Aug after discovering this forum. As of today it has done 2282 trouble-free km. I had been an avid cyclist for 70 odd years before surgery and chemo therapy knocked the starch out of me last year. The electr...
