Re: VESC-controller: Firmware released!

For the moment, my question remains unanswered. Do you guys think that your modified VESC could be the best base for controlling the high voltage stages or am I better off with my Arduino approach. I really liked the many options & parameters the VESC software offers out of the box... STM32F40x...

Re: VESC-controller: Firmware released!

Well - it is possible, maybe even likely that I'm wrong. That's why I'm doing an experiment to falsify or proof the theory. In the mean time I don't care about your opinion :roll: But I will open a new thread as I've already realized that my project is too far off topic as soon as I start to answer ...

Re: VESC-controller: Firmware released!

I should check my notes, but at 50kV you are using switches designed for megaWatt-class converters and multilevel topologies, like a series string of several 1700V SiC mosfets or IGBTs. For less costs you would need to design a low current powerstage but with multilevel topology, fiber optic gate d...

Re: VESC-controller: Firmware released!

Great forum, great controller, great community :bigthumb: I'm just joining and haven't read through the whole forum yet. From all I could educate myself so far, this is not a perfectly optimized VESC controller for my application - but probably the best one I can find without doing everything myself...
