That's exactly what I have been proposing. I call it an open source
controller but same thing.
and of course it's a brilliant idea. at the same time including a DCDC
supply and recharger

Heathkit may no longer make and sell kits, this is true, but the reason
was not due to lack of interest or demand nor was it due to the cost of
producing kits. In a nutshell, Zenith, who purchased Heathkit during
the early PC days, wanted a PC product. Their emphasis was not on
general electronics kits at all and they basically let the kit portion
of the company go under.

Today there are a myriad of small companies making electronics kits for
the ham radio hobby. One in particular is doing quite well - check out
www.elecraft.com . Anyway, it is definitely a niche market but is still
quite prolific and productive.

I'm going to take a wild guess and guess that if the non-computer related
kits were profitable, Zenith wouldn't have been stupid enough to just let
them go under, they would have sold it.

I built a lot of Heathkit audio test gear, and I never had a problem. My
Uncle (who generally knew nothing about electronics), built a high end
Heathkit TV, it costed more than a nice store bought TV. It didn't work.
He had to get it fixed. He mumbled something about a two legged transistor
:).

I'm guessing selling kits to Hams doesn't generate near the support costs of
selling TV kits to people like my Uncle. Hams know enough not to install a
two legged transistor. It would be easy to believe that Heathkit sold out
because the support costs resulting from selling kits to amateurs (not radio
amateurs), especially when they were beginning to have to compete pricewise
with offshore products, was killing them. Even then, a Heath TV kit costed
more than a finished TV, and the difference in price was growing. Zenith
probably got a bargain on the company because it wasn't very profitable, and
dropped the stuff that no longer paid off.

What did a Heathkit oscilloscope kit cost back then, hundreds in 1975
dollars, and what does an imported O scope cost today? Hundreds in 2007
dollars? I think the writing was on the wall. Once a product goes to large
scale outsourced production, it typically gets cheaper than the parts alone
in a small quantity purchase.

The cost of the controller is all in the testing and research, not in
the assembly. While it seems the Zilla IS expensive to assemble from
the comments (never seen one), recovering the cost of all the
development is most important.

The controller I've built using IGBT modules is not hard to assemble at
all, and perhaps once its all debugged I could sell the circuit board
and others could get the modules and caps etc to build one, but I'll bet
by that time the cheap ebay IGBT modules won't be available anymore, and
new ones are very expensive.

My view is that a low-cost way of getting a controller is to build a
hybrid contact controller with the low-cost low-voltage controllers,
use them for smooth take-off, then switch them out with contactors.
There are a lot of ways to build things to save money, there just is NO
INCENTIVE AT ALL for someone to build test and debug such systems.

if power electronics actually were expensive we could look to a
contactor controller but I reiterate that Ian Hooper summed up the power
electronics cost in a curtis to roughly 80$ total. while some modules
are quite expensive it seems that doing it with many small IGBTs in
parallel is quite cheap. certainly far better than a mechanical
solution. so if you indeed have a working design, show it so others can
build it too, be it with large surplus modules or brand new small
transistors

>> are quite expensive it seems that doing it with many small IGBTs in

IGBT's and MOSFET's don't parallel as easily as you are led to believe.
After getting one controller running, make sure you can build 20 or 30
of them and have the good reliability. I've been bit in production on
this point. Big VFD manufacturers would not use the big IGBT switching
modules if it were really cheaper to use a lot of small parts. Make
sure you have desat detection at the driver level (HCPL-316 opto is one
example) if you're not using an intelligent power module. If you ensure
you have proper protection here, you are less likely to blow it up if
you screw up the control aspect. It's certainly possible, however... The
power stage needs to be designed properly. If you have not, make sure
you read all of the IGBT and driver application notes from Avago (drivers),
IR (drivers, IGBT's, MOSFETs), Fairchild (IGBT's), and Powerex. They
cover a lot of how it's done, and how it's often done wrong. The Valentine
book is also very instructive.

The parasitics are no problem for that big cap array if it's done right.
Most of my experience has been with 3-phase drives. Bill is absolutely
correct. In any of the VFD's I've met (repaired, built, rebuilt), there
are small film capacitors directly across the half-bridge (or in a series
controller, between the MOSFET source and the diode cathode), right at
each MOSFET or IGBT. Those take care of the sub-microsecond overshoots.
Not there = bang. In the bigger 3-phase drives I've worked with (25-50kW)
the big capacitor bank is connected in several groups to each lead screw
on each IGBT - distributed across the power and ground bus. They may be
wired together with #18 wire, but when you have 12 or 15 groups of 2 to 5
capacitors on each group, the resistance becomes insignificant, and
the HF bypass capacitor (sometimes called a snubbing capacitor, but that's
not exactly correct terminology) swamps the inductance going to the
electrolytic bank. The HF bypass capacitors are made by Cornell-Dublier,
and they have pretty impressive ratings.

When I rebuild Solectria BRLS controllers, I just shove in as many low-ESR,
low-ESL, switching power supply capacitors as I can get into that box. I
think it isn't quite enough, but it's a heck of a lot better than I took
out. All of the BRLS controllers I've met have electrolytic capacitor
degradation. One even shrunk off all of the plastic wrapping.

At one point, someone asked for me to share a design of something that
I have done. My employer (and past employers) all say I can't do that.
A design I come up with for fun, sure. But not when I get paid to
design something for someone else.

It isn't easy! Getting hardware to build a car or truk isn't easy! At
Nretgain they are growing motors as fast as they can, like selling more THIS
year than since they began.People are coming out of theWOODWORK, they have
scene THE movie, well, Al Gore's too. And they are DOING something about it;
build yur own! Nice, maybe I'm doing SOMETHING right. Driving my talk, about
to go to Ray's Seafood's Cruise night, being parked with the 'vettes and
custom stuff. Sheeple see a working EV, doing show an' Tell.

OK Point I'm getting to; the finate availableity of controllers. EVen
Alltrax is sold out for their BIG one;72 volt, 450 amp. Sigh!EVerybody with
ANY thing that you could use as a controller.gone or ya go on a waiting
list. So, chill out, or build your own. As my Jetta is stone age compared to
an EV-1 or Tesla.Looking again at my old Rabbit controller, the big click
box contactor. Hell, when it goes on the fritz I can fix it! Open a Rapture
orZilla and what are ya gunna fix? If I can't fix it with a big hammer, I'm
in trouble. My crude lumpy contactor only let me down in traffic once and I
pushed it out of the way, and tightened the lead on the micro switch box,
and went on my way, dignity intact. If the Rapture shits out, I call AAA.So,
go ahead, do a rock simple contacter job and quit yur bitchen' !Put in your
order and line forms there., when ya get your Zilla, or Rapture you will
love it all the more!!

Probably back to contactors?
