Hi, I’m Evan and have been “lurking” for about a week.. I’m converting a 92 Eagle Talon. I have a 96v, 30 HP motor from Ebay installed and have tested it with a 48V 300A Curtis.. I too decided to build my own controller and have a pile of blown IGBTs and Mostets to prove it! I wish I had found this string a month ago..
Anyway, I have a question.. Paul uses 24, 200v, 470mf caps. Is it OK to use 3 large, 4400mf 300v caps? Is it the total “mf” that is important?
I want to just screw mount 3 of them straight to the buss bars omitting the PC board.. I can get 10 of them for $30 on ebay right now..
