The 2012 EAssist MGU is a 2nd Gen.themelon wrote: ↑Apr 24, 2018 11:58 amI would suggest starting a new topic on this, referencing this thread as a starting point, since it is a very different application of the 2nd gen of this motor, not the first being discussed here. I know from the electronics side the Gen2 is vastly different from the Gen1 eAssist setup. I have not looked at the motor itself though.96Miata wrote: ↑Apr 24, 2018 4:33 amSo Im new to the electric motor setups and I've been wanting to do a electric boost system project for some time. I just bought a Gen 2 EAssist motor/Gen. I want to put it on my Miata as a boost system and the have a ReGen system. Most of the stuff you guys are talking about is way over my head, but I want to learn more about how to make this work. Thanks e-vektor, keep up the good work
What you are talking about doing is somewhat similar to a long term project I am working on though. I am working out a way to integrate a Chevy Spark EV trans-axle into the drive train of my 2004 GMC 2500HD Duramax pickup. My current plan, for the mechanical side at least, is to connect it to the front axle output side of the 4WD transfer case. The Spark motor is not very big but it puts out 400 foot pounds as Chevy has it setup. It is a permanent magnet motor though, not inductive like the eAssist unit.
I am looking into how to make it run, since this is the only person that has posted anything about this MGU working out side of GM.
Are you using an inverter seperate from the controller? You say you are only getting 4k from from it before losing efficiency. What was the pulley ratio on the Buick? Gm must have been getting more than 10k rpm.
