I don't know if it works out, but I like the idea. Will have to give that some thought. Currently each phase has peak to peak of ~2x battery, might need inverting buck-boost just to compete.

edit and regen will flow unbucked and with an inductor in parallel with the battery... Not sure it's gonna work out so well...
