Re: Open source ac vfd conversion
I have Prius motors , m1,m2 2 each plus a few 3 phase induction motors of various sizes , generators to 150 hp as possible dynos . 10 or so industrial vfd's small to 40 hp , 24 igbts 600a 1200v , 6 igbts 1000a 1200v, lots of big caps , etc . Prime interest is to set up test equipment to check / hack or build drives for 4 motor 4 wheel drive E class benz wagon and other simpler but more important projects like solar panel controller , battery charger , air conditioning , water pump , chain saw etc. I will pick the most simple projects to start with but continue collecting parts fore the most complex projects . I don't want to smoke parts . So I figured a power analyzer ($15,000 ) was not in the cards but I might find one cheep .So I know I can emulate one . So put together hall effect amp meters signal generators , counter/timers , scope etc . Putting all this information onto a computer , I hope will be manageable . Then I could look over the data during /after the run .
