This is our circuit. The first LARGE capacitor is what I was using to simulate the battery. 100 Farads will act like a battery for a few seconds (which is all the simulation is for). The 2nd capacitor in parallel is the "capacitor bank". The diode is the freewheel diode. The mosfet at the bottom is the mosfet. The inductor and the series resistor (0.01 Ohm) is the motor. The voltage source at the bottom is the pwm for the mosfet.
