Oh ya! My EV conversion cost $2200 before credit card interest. haha. You could do an AC conversion. One limit is the very high voltage associated with it. But maybe you could build a boost stage that takes maybe 150v and sends it up to 300v, and then use that for the bus for the AC controller.

The 2 film caps arrived yesterday. So, I have the IGBTs, cap... Now I'm waiting on performance data from the DC controllers (the driver section) to see if I need to change anything for the AC driver section before I send that board in to be manufactured. Then it's easy peasy, japanezy. bam done! haha. more or less.
kits and boards
