I'm going to be messing around with my AC controller this spring. If I have one of these to try, I will hook it up and see whether it works as is or if Paul would need to change some stuff to accommodate

I have converted an old Ninja 600 to electric. Using an AC-20 three phase motor, and a Curtis motor controller and 10kwh of thundersky batteries running at 108 Volts. It took a bit to do interfacing to the bike, and charger but I can get 50 miles in mixed driving. But I do have a bit of overheating at 60MPH and over. It is very important to keep the RPM up high. I believe it is 72 teeth on the wheel to 10 on the motor. Expensive but it works.

How about a Super hybrid with the E-assist alter-motor as well as the normal ? of course it would be isolated from the "normal electrical system"... Dual HV battery system

Spring of 2018 came and went. I blew up (fried) my Paul Homes AC controller .. by hooking it up to the battery pack backward and shorting out the diode sides ... so it is out of commission and not available for testing until I replace the IGBTs

I have replacement IGBTs .. older ones .. from an *OLD* AC industrial controller ... but that project is not likely happening this year, either.

I'm still interesting in doing the ebay search for the E-assist motors from wrecks. Can anyone post part numbers or which vehicles the E-assist comes from?

It needs to be done. There is a Buick dealer downtown I'll try to remember to stop by.

Buick Lacrosse and Chevy Impala.

Online, go to car-part.com and scroll to Buick Lacrosse or Chevy Impala after year 2013 to get Gen 2 BAS alternator. Should be in your area for $75.00 or so. They are everywhere. Mostly you need an encoder to use most controllers. Paul Holmes added the encoder to his later model controller.

Buick Lacrosse, 2013, 2.4L eco engine?

All I see is alternator?

Nothing shows BAS or Gen-2

So .. what am I doing wrong?

Put in 2013 for the year.
Put in Buick Lacrosse for the make/model.
Put in Alternator for the part.
Enter either a geographic area or a zip code (I put in zip code).
Hit Search.
A dialog box will come up, with "2013 Buick Lacrosse Alternator" at the top, with two radio buttons: one labeled 3.6L and one labeled 2.4L (eAssist).
Pick 2.4L (eAssist).
Hit Search.

I see several. Some have pictures, and you can see the two cooling pipe ends and either an oddly shaped plate with an orange and black label held on with three studs or an oval hole where the phase wires connect. I saw one picture with a very close up shot of the label, including part number "24261691 AA" which when dropped into Google returns several results about eAssist, alter-motor, hybrid starter-generator, lots of different ways they are referred to, including just "alternator" since it bolts on the engine like one and gets driven by a belt like one, and mostly looks like one.

Happy hunting!

Cool, I'm off the hook. It's been a hard day.

...

So I know what it looks like now! Thanks.

Car-part asked for zip code and only showed me US until I shared my location ... DUH!! So my paranoia about location on my phone has cost me some time .. sigh!

It looks like there is a wrecker that I drive by once every week or 2 with a tested unit for $175.

There is a $50 unit - untested - in ontario but the shipping would be a lot

But there's no rush. I'll wait for something cheap to show up. Now that I have the search saved ..

Thanks!
