Tonight I hope to get started on schematics and making a wish list of parts. I am going to start rather small, 275 AMP 156 Volt 3 Phase for my ACGTX20 motor, but should be easily upgradeable to anything higher.
Bummer David!

My farmhouse (I don't live there!) floods in the spring when the frost goes...
I chopped into the old cement floor, put a sump well in, and drilled a bunch of holes in the side -- Now all the water finds its way to the well UNDER the floor and I pump it out with an automatic sump .. Not much gets into the floor anymore...

I will keep lurking on the AC controller as I want to try a trike with one next!
