hey guys,
I have a question that is related to power calculation: How do I calculate how much power (hp) I need to drive 55mph on an incline of say 30%?
Lets say that the finished ev weights 2500lb and I needed to drive on a grade ~30% for about 0.6mi at speeds around 55mph, can I do that with DC conversion? and what kind of voltage would I need the system to run at?

thanks for any help!
