    Hello, so after years of kicking around the idea I'm finally taking the plunge into converting my '72 Triumph Gt6 over to electric. I've managed to gain most of the basics from forums like this but I still had a couple questions. The motor im using to begin with is a 96v 200amp dc motor...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and want to introduce me and my project quickly. Ever since, I've been fascinated by these Land Rover Defenders and loved working with (micro)electronics. Now that I'm old enough, I bought a Defender with a well maintained frame and of course, it's gonna get an...

    Hello all, I'm looking to convert my 65' Corvair, but I'm having a hard time choosing between an AC or DC system. Does anyone have any "lessons learned" or "wish you would haves" using either of these systems?

    I'm on the brink of buying a 72v 7.5kW EV conversion kit from SHINEGLE New Energy Technologies Co., Ltd. I found it on Alibaba. I've been corresponding with the sales guy for over a month. And everything seems to be real. Before I take the final decision I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone...

    Hi all, When pressing the brake lever on my ebike the bldc motor controller (aka ebike controller) 'cuts power' to the motor until the brake lever is released again/sensor is deactivated. I would love to know how that works/what happens. I am wondering what causes the power to be 'cut...

    Is there any brain trust left on DCP Raptor 600 controllers? Mine is from a build done in 2007. It was an original DCP that was sent to Black Sheep Technologies for their wizardry. I have no idea what that means except that throttle changed from an inductive unit to a pot. All that was before I...

    My 10 year old Zilla based conversion is having a problem. The tach has been working for years, but recently the needle started to stick, then the Zilla starts to cut out. I figured out it was the Stall Detect and turned it off. That allowed me to continue to drive it, but not long after, the...

    Hey everyone, I've been working on my EV conversion, and if you want to see my current progress, here's a link to my latest video on it (https://youtu.be/V86oAZzfwRE). I'm working on wiring it all together and getting the motor to react to the throttle pedal. After trying for a bit, I came to...

    Hello everyone! I've found an industrial 15kW three-phase AC induction motor, and I'm in the market for a VFD to run this thing. It's a Baldor GDM2515T rated at 20HP, 230/460V, & 48/24A ("Full load amps"). It's weight is great for it's power and I like the fact that it's AC. I've found a...

    Hi folks. In this thread I'm going to present an all hardware DIY (Tesla) ACIM ASIC controller that does not need uC, DSP and programming. It is a spin-off of this thread about a similar controller for a DC series motor. Most of "can it be done?" stuff (simulations, breadboarding) is in the DC...

    Hi everyone, I was looking at the populated version of the Paul and Sabrina DC controller (https://pandspowerelectronics.ecwid.com/#!/**POPULATED**-350v-1000amp-DC-Control-Driver-Board/p/59121616/category=22093524) On the information page, it discusses that there are a few extra things I need...

    Hi all, I have a 90kW peak, 25kW continuous dual inverter from Enova sitting in my garage. It was built in 2002 and has a serial number 0001. See pictures attached. Can't speak to functionality, but it is in excellent condition physically and has been unused since I have owned it. Time to clean...

    When I registered here, I set myself the goal to start my first conversion build in 2018. And a couple of months ago I decided to go for it after I saw the first results of €1000 DC conversion here. To do a build on a shoestring and in a short period of time, the electronics have to be simple...
