I'm going to have a summary of questions at the bottom and a few I didn't type in the 4 paragraphs
So I'm debating on converting my vehicle, its a 2006 Hyundai Elantra sedan, I'm not sure the exact specs most people give out, but heres the main pointers, its a 4 cylinder and it has 138HP, power steering, no ABS, the Curb weight is 2837, automatic transmission, front wheel drive, I have steel rims 185/65R15.
Now the motor I was originally looking at was a AC50, I was pretty set on it, then I saw the WARP9 (I think it was) mostly because it was a DC motor, then I realized it had brushes so I kept looking, then I came upon the Hyper9. So I'm thinking about using a hyper 9, I couldn't find the exact sheets on everything but I was mostly concerned with the fact that it says it can draw up to around 800 AMPS. I work with a master electrician and he was confused as well because I couldn't find out if that was the battery draw, or if it was distributed between the 3 power legs off the controller. If anyone has a more specific answer than what I assumed I would love to hear it because I'm in the dark.
The batteries I was all over the place, I kept finding different things, first I was going to make my own with 18650's (3.6v 3AMP/3000mAh) I was willing to take the chance on them, until i heard about 32650's (3.6v 6AMP/6000mAh) and I'm thinking about going with that now, my plan is 40 in series to get 144v, and then put them in 15 bundles of parallel for 90Ah. I was watching a video of a guy converting his Miata (I know his size, Aerodynamics, and weight is alot different) he put a hyper9 and on their webpage (zero-ev i think it was called) said "10 of these cells will move a hyper 9" (link to that quote: LG 4P3S Module 2.6KWh - Zero EV
) the batteries he was referring to was a battery with 11v and 60AH. Long story short I was wondering if my batteries would be ok all together i would have 600 32650's and it would have a voltage of 144 and amperage of 90Ah.
My final question would be the rest of the car, I have power steering and AC.... and I dunno what else is on my motors belt, I could care less about AC, I'm in Maine so honestly it doesn't matter that much to me, but power steering and the brakes are the only thing I'm curious as to what to do, my power steering I want to do away with, but I'm not mechanically inclined to know what to do with that, and AC I was just gonna dump, brakes I'm not sure what to do because I hear about vacuum pumps or something for brakes... maybe it was for power steering, sorry for not having correct information its 10:30PM and im pretty tired.
What is the exact data sheet with the motor draw, does the 800AMP draw on the battery, or each leg of the controller?
The HyPer 9 Integrated System™ IS is a great drive system for any light to mid-weight daily driver Its Synchronous Reluctance Internal Permanent Magnet SRIPM platform delivers outstanding torque and efficiency generating higher power per pound than any other motor in its class The HyPer 9
would the 32650's be good to handle the motor, and if you happen to know a guess on the range? 3.6v 6AMP/6000mAh
BATTERY HOOKUP CELLS HAVE ARRIVED! No more minimum 100 cell orders, buy exactly as many as you need for your project. These are brand new and fresh Battery Hookup 6000mAh cells that are double tested. 2000+ cycle rated as well. Perfect for every application since they have an 18A (3C) discharge...
What can I do with my power steering? and how do I handle the brakes? (photo of the engine bay nothing special)
Can I possibly do a direct drive? I was thinking I couldn't where its front wheel drive (unless if I used two motors...)
Transmission wise, is there something special I have to do (after motor is mounted) to keep everything good, I thought I heard about something.
sorry this is long but this has been a few questions I've had, I've attempted to do research on the motor but I had no luck, and I know a few things about electrical but not so much about cars, I've been studying electrical engineering a little nothing big, but just some of the things are a haze to me.
thank you so much if you can answer these questions that have been stuck with me
