  3. 18650 cell cooling

    Batteries and Charging
    I am building a 18650 li-ion battery pack for my electric motorcycle. It has over 1000 cells and will hold over 9kWh of power. I am running the cells at a 1C discharge with peak discharge of 3C for no more than 30 sec. I am wondering if air cooling will be sufficient or if anyone has ever tried...

Compressor was easy to install with custom hoses. Finished install in late August, cools great as long as...
  6. Cooling the capacitors

    Controllers
    Hey, I have a Netgain 1000A controller (old style) and the capaitor temperature is getting up to above 160 when driving in summer on the highway. The IGBT temp stays pretty low, as I have ample cooling. It did seem slightly better when I removed the plastic cover and drove, but I'm afraid of...
  7. Thermal ratings for ME motors?

    Blog
    Im looking for any information you can share on the thermal performance of the Mars electric motor series (specifically the ME-1004). Maximum operating temperature? Thermal insulation class? etc. This will help me determine if i am overheating and need to add additional cooling to my system...
  8. Radiators

    All EV Conversions and Builds
    So, I've had a good look around and although there is a discussion about cooling motors and controllers, I haven't got a fix on what that looks like for AC motors that have built in cooling capability. Do people use a regular car radiator, fan etc, or do they use other types of cooling systems...
