Hi,

I have a complete kit for creating the Huebners AC motor controller kit.

Info about the controller:
http://johanneshuebner.com/quickcms/index.html?en_motor-inverter,8.html

The kit contains everything listed here:
http://johanneshuebner.com/quickcms/index.html?en_inverter-kit,10.html

So there are 5 PCBs + Olimex STM32 board + cables.

PCBs are assembled (components soldered).

Price for the kit only is 280US$ + shipping.

To make a complete AC motor controller, you need IGBTs and capacitors, I have those also:

Everything is brand new, it has never been used.
Price for caps and IGBTs is 580 US$ + shipping.

When everything's put together, you get an AC motor controller which can handle up to 300V battery bank voltage.

Once completed, it looks like this (my kit doesn't contain the box nor the cooler, this is Huebners controller):


Of course it can be done prettier, depends on your skill level :p.

This is how creators Polo drives:

Hi,

This controller supports induction motors.

Spark EV uses a permanent magnet / DC brushless motor, so no, this controller will not run it out of the box.

Tesla Roadster used an induction motor, so that one you can run with this controller.

I use one such kit up to 420Vdc and cca 400A so power can be adapted to application. I use Elcaps though.
One can use inverter as charger too with newer software and some additional hardware.
Basic drivers are a bit flimsy thoough. I would replace those PCBs with some proper drivers with desat and short protection.
Made some 50Kkm on this...

Not as of yet :). I did however run Leaf motor with my inverter in V/Hz mode at 380V.
I got up to 100Hz and 300A. Phase cables were almost floating and my DCDC converter released smoke. It seems VHz is not in line with motor windings. Some current skew is required. Also plenty of back EMF was heating my cables.

I really think we will have to develop this furtner. Lets wait for Johannes shall we?
