Re: Please help with series hybrid controller
My environmental reason for doing this is most important because I deeply believe in alternative energies and in this case all electric is not feasible for the size and weight of vehicle in conjunction with the terrain that will be crossed. So our next step on the list is hybrid, and since they will be in the boonies quite a bit, the KISS principle applies as much as possible hence this configuration.
Fiscally, this is the least expensive of the options. Money spent thus far, doing everything in our shop minus the ICE rebuild is 21k rounded up not including labor (this is also pricing in the free components our sponsors are providing) and we estimate another 15k.
Our other intentions for this is just to compliment the electric motorcycle side of the equation. And last but certainly not least our quest to do this correctly is driven by the fact that once we are done with the trip, we bring everything up to par and the vehicle is raffled off with the proceeds going to help feed hungry children.
So please help with positive input.
