    I was looking for a motor for my DIY conversion, and I stumbled upon a used permanent magnet 3-phase AC servo motor, it looks perfect for a conversion, it's small, light, water cooled, and can handle 110 kW. Now the question from the title, can it be used in an EV? I heard that AC motors that...
  4. Batteries and Charging
    I was recently given three Renogy SMART LiFePO4 12v 100Ah batteries that would no longer take a charge. After opening them up, I found moisture inside and corrosion on the BMS boards. The batteries were in a portable light tower and I assume we're exposed to rain. Upon testing I determined...

Still, an electric car is simple to build. But before you start building it, you need to have a blueprint...
  19. Batteries and Charging
    After delving deeply into the EMW 12 kW DIY charger, I think it would be best to make a new design. My concept is to make modules, each of which can be used on 120 or 240 VAC single or three phase, or up to 300 VDC. The modules would be 1.2 kVA for 120 VAC, and 2.4 kVA for 240 VAC or 300 VDC...

I was thinking about how Honda engines have very low torque and have to be revved to the stratosphere to get max power out of them.
