A friend Stephen ordered a kit (traded for some BMSs) and he designed some copper bus bars. I will post the files for anyone who wants to get their own fabbed up.

Nice looking bars.

Is the big black brick thingy on top a stock Leaf capacitor?

Hi Arlo,

I'm specifying a project at the moment and seriously considering using one of your inverters. I was wondering (and this might also be aimed at Lebowski), have you looked into supporting 3-phase battery charging? I've read a few articles discussing this. I believe this is what the Renault Zoe Chameleon charger is (someone please step in if I am incorrect in this assumption).

The most concise publication I've found is this one: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7353033, you can get a free copy of it here: https://www.researchgate.net/publicatio ... c_Vehicles

It appears that the number of additional components required to implement this is relatively minimal (isolation transformers and contactors being the more expensive parts).

Take a look at the Hübner inverter.

It supports charging.

This is easy to do if you want to have a bunch of contactors in series with each motor phase and maybe some external inductors.

I believe Tesla did something like this as well for the Original roadster. There is reasons people don't do this on OEM EVs available right now.

Hoping for the best for your wife and whole family. I am late to the party but am wondering if this inverter setup is available to order? Or if there is something similar available commercially. Was considering saving up for the HSRmotors Tesla rear drive and 057 controller. But if 300hp is possible with the leaf motor (even as a burst mode / scramble) then that's enough for this project. Thank you.

Thanks.

Martin,

I have been offering kits.

I have to warn you I have 10 IGBTs on order and they are another 22 weeks away :( I even looked at getting 100 of them and its still a 24 week lead time.
Also I tell most to aim for less power if you are looking to string it out for the max at 300+ hp there is a good chance you will blow it up. There is a lot going on here and its a huge undertaking to get this all sorted out. But if you are inclined here is the link.

Thank you. I was hoping the 300hp would be available in a "burst mode" or scramble type of configuration. Aka like when drag racing. Thank you again for the reply.

Its a use at your own risk kit.

You might get 300Hp.

I got close to 400hp and forgot to turn the cooling fan on and blew up the last one with my thermal cut set not quite aggressive enough. I was able to do 300+ hp for a lot of 1/4 mile runs. But I also spent a LOT of time and money to get there. You can do the same at your own risk and cost if you like. I am always working to make the kits better and more robust.

New announcement Here

Been working with these guys for years now and for the last year+ on some big contract work. We decided to register http://www.powerdesigns.ca/ and we are going full bore with power electronics development.
