That's right Ben! As a less ghetto example, the Curtis 144v 500 amp controller has 35 200v 220 uF, and we'll have the equivalent of 48 200v 235 uF caps. Plus, these caps have the highest ripple current capability of any of comparable size. That engineer's conclusion was that the Kelly 144v controller was more like a 96v controller.

PS: Remember I was saying those ATMega8's are cheap? Here's a good example of what I mean...

Cheap ATMega8's!
