MHO: build and use it with what you have. Probably will exceed expectations. Otoh: better to fry existing silicon than go buy new expensive silicone to OOPS. Just ask thingstodo.

+1 on that. But I guess it would depend on how expensive the existing silicon is that you already own

Sunk cost=paid for=free more or less. YMMV. WAAAY cheaper than 1800a currently on mouser

I have seen 2.25x bus voltage at the output terminals of the IGBTs, before the turn on/turn off resistor values have been adjusted to minimize overshoot. And 2 ms is more than enough time to blow up your IGBTs

Yes that's correct about the voltage spikes, but I was referring to the AMP draw spec on the IGBT (IC max).I'll just prototype around these for now, aiming for a current limit of 350A per phase and we'll see from there.

PS: I've also gone back to the design board a bit ... might just opt for a DC series motor for the first setup (didn't buy the AC35 yet)

I guess I read that wrong. Sorry

I haven't had time to work on this in a long time, and I don't see myself getting back into it any time soon unfortunately.
If anybody is interested, I'd sell my fully assembled inverter board for $100 shipped. I feel like that is fair for what is essentially an untested board. It has always been stored inside an anti-static bag and that is how it will be packed.
I was never able to establish communication, and I was unable to determine if that was because of my lack of experience with PICs, a faulty knockoff pickit3, or an issue with the board itself.






PM me if you're interested. I'll only ship within the continental US.

PM sent. Very interested in this.
