I've been trying to configure and test my lebowski build on my cyclone 3000w mid drive. I'm not sure the motor's pole count, so not sure about the correct erpms (can't seem to find this info anywhere, seen people asking about it, but no one giving a response, except for 1 video in russian, which I don't speak). I tried some relative best guesses for the erpm values, and went through the entire rest of the config. I'm initially trying to run it totally sensorless, then likely hall assisted sensorless soon. BUT, I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong when i go to test the motor while the bike is on a stand. The config seems to go ok, but when I remove the setup jumper and reconnect power, the 4 leds start blinking, 2 at time, 1 & 3, 2 & 4 (of the 4 green yellow and red LEDs). I can;t seem to find any info on what the LEDs mean, but presumably this is not good, since the motor will not run when I try to hit the throttle. I'm running a 12 FET (2 x 6 FET of Lebowski's low inductance output design), but I had originally filled the entire board as if it was a 24 fet, and simply removed the 3 driver chips of the unneeded parts, leaving the rest of the components... hoping I read the schematic right and this is just as good as removing all the extra parts. I'm using a basic half twist throttle 1-4v, which appears to work correctly when I test it in the config, so I don't think my throttle is the problem.
Can anyone point me in the right direction... what do the LEDs mean... any ideas on what might be wrong in my situation, and any chance anyone knows more about the cyclone 3000w, what erpm values would make sense for it?... anything else I need to know about running in sensorless mode.
EDIT: ok, after 100 pages of the cyclone thread, finally found it, looks like it's a 6 pole, which is what I was expecting... but don't think that's my problem, with it not running. Also, I know it says to use a fuse when powering from a battery to configure the controller... but what about in normal use?... is a fuse needed?.,... and if so, what kind of fuse would you need for a 80v 40-50A setup?
EDIT: just saw the line in the manual stating what the blinking LEDs should mean... should mean I did not go through every sub menu during the setup process... but I just carefully went through every single config page, then saved my settings, then removed the SETUP jumper, and tried to hit the throttle... nothing... then I triggered the reset (not sure if you're supposed to hit that or not, I tried with and without hitting it)... but after hitting it, the 4 LEDs start blinking the same way again... same if i pull the power and plug it back in.... was pretty happy when I caught that line of what the LEDs supposedly meant.. but now I'm more confused since I went through it so carefully. I updated all the non autocompleted values where they seem to make sense to me, not sure what I'm doing wrong... but guessing it's gonna be some small detail that I somehow missed every time.. I'm just not sure. I suppose if I can't get basic sensorless to work, I should work on trying to see if hooking up the hall sensors does anything is any better this time... the added bonus there, if I need to hook up the hall sensors, I need to figure out what order to hook them up as presumably... which could get confusing.
Oh, and for a quick update on the erpms.. I found out that the motor should have 6 pole pairs, and the motor's max RPM is 5,400 according to the cyclone-tw website, I've heard others say a bit higher, but seems like a good starting point... so I got a max ERPM of 32.4k ... so I set the forward rampdown start, end at about 30, 32.4 k-erpm.... I wasn't sure about the "reverse" or regen rampup (seeing how it's a mid drive I don't have reverse, or regen.. so hopefully those values mean nothing... but I simply put in something close to the example, since I did not know what to put for not available.... seems like that would all be about right...
EDIT.... OK, so I think I might just be a little dumb right now... def need sleep... but think I just realized the cause of my problems. I still had the motor connector (the non phase wires) connected to my stock controller... I forgot about it, since I was trying to run sensorless, and was ignoring the hall sensors.... but guessing that may be the cause of some of my problems.... if not all of them. Tho still confused by the LEDs blinking then... but guess I need to play around with this a little more, hopefully won't take long to figure out what's I need to do with those wires for now, still trying to go purely sensorless first, then likely move to the combo.
EDIT.... And looks like that may not have mattered at all... still not sure what I'm doing wrong.. but might try setting up the hall sensors and trying that just to switch things up
