  8. Switching HV accessories in conversions?

    All EV Conversions and Builds
    Precharge of the capacitors on a drive inverter is well understood - and most inverters manage this themselves. But I'm curious about the other accessories that run on ~380 volts DC. DC/DC converters have a certain amount of capacitance that would potentially weld a contactor. Likewise, high...

  13. Idea for distributed charger/BMS one per cell

    Batteries and Charging
    While working on my prototype for a flying capacitor BMS with charging capability for the bottom cell using the entire (4 cell) pack, I got to thinking that, instead of charging that one cell and using traditional shunt current balancing, why not design a charger for a single LiFePO4 or LiPo (or...
