Battery pack ------- inductor ---------- middle of 4th IGBT Half Bridge.

Top of 4th IGBT Half bridge is connected to the bus capacitor for the 3 phase inverter. Bottom of 4th IGBT is connected to ground.

Then you have the other 3 half bridges for the inverter. So, unless I'm misunderstanding something, the current through the inductor is the battery amps. So, for 144v, 60kw would require around 400amp through the inductor, unfortunately. But only 200amp for a 300v system (to boost to 600v 100amp).

So, you have 409vBattery * 70ampBattery = 29kW? What is your top speed?
