"...The EV has a 120 volt 24 amp generator installed to the DC electric drive motor (belt driven) connected to an on-board battery charger to recharge batteries when down shifting and cruising down hill..."

How would this work? Would the generator always be engaged? How do you wire it to a charger? Links? :confused:

So basically this thread is about sticking a brushless alternator on the motor shaft as a regenerative brake, yes?
