Paul IMHO you have taken the most intangeable part in making an electric car and made it more within the grasp for some one to actually do it. With everbodies world crashing down people losing long term jobs mortgages getting harder to pay and the economy doing bad, this is a god send. Thank you

Thanks brihoo2k! Your encouragement means a lot to me!

I uploaded the whole folder for the project. I have all optimizations turned off so that it doesn't skip my Delay() function. It makes the code a bit bigger, but it's only at 22% full.

A different controller video

Hey guys,

I got a video response on my YouTube channel about a controller.

This controller is lower amperage, but it's pretty nice looking. It's interesting to see what's the same and what's different between Pauls controller and this one.






PS: In case anyone is curious about YouTube's abuse of 16:9 video, what happens is that YouTube doesn't account for ANAMORPHIC 16:9, only square-pixel HD for 16:9

That was pretty! Nice fabrication too. I would like to get good with metal like that. I also like how he has the fan. I think he had 1 ripple capacitor, though. For a car, you need a huge pile of them, and I'm not sure where you would put them. That was awesome! Very simple and clean. Whoever made that could really do some precision fabricating. Maybe an aluminum box isn't such a bad idea. The heat sink could be bolted directly to the box. hmm... I need to get some collets for the mill. Thanks Ben!

IMHO plastic box is more electrical safety.

Thanks motor_control. I think you are right now that I think about it.

Right now I'm testing each function, one at a time, in the software simulator provided by Atmel. Everything's good so far. Almost done (well, with the software testing!)

I sugest your to use USART TxD and optocopler 4n35 for transfer data to PC COM port or throgth ft232rl to USB. This data you can grab to Excel or another graph software for real time debuging whole EV on driving and after that.

This data can be using by dashboard for speed, current, voltage monitoring.
For monitoring BAT charge level etc.

IMHO USART is very useness option.

In firmvare it is very simlple to use HW USART atmega8. Thay can transmitting data independantly of is interface cable (may by like that for GSM phone) attached or not.

I'm 'struja' which means electrical current ( on croatian ).
Controller shown in the video is mine . I'm trying to put together a motorcycle - Aprilia AF1 .

Abaut mine project you can see on this webpage :
