Last part of testing for Nov 1 - spin test

Drive the DC motor with a deep cycle batteries (no controller - none of mine work right now). AFTER verifying that the battery turns the motors the same direction as the AC controller does

Put the AC controller and AC motor into regenerative braking. Take energy from the rotating motor and push it back into the high voltage battery pack.

I need to spend some time setting up some instruments - this was as painful to do as it is to watch (if you choose to watch it)

Here is the information that is interesting
Code:
Motor rpm	AC motor current	AC Motor Voltage	DC Motor current
2500		42						35
2230		22						35
1950		9						38.5
1950		0.3						38.5
1970		-0.5						38.5
1970		-7.8			0 - 30			38.5
1949		-14						40
1880		-19.4						41
The high voltage pack shows 0.0 amps in, 0.0 amps out, so the power developed in regen must just be enough to power the electronics.
