A few of us have used this board. My MG Midget is on his page, and Duncan is using one of Paul’s boards as well. It works very well. Do you have specific questions?

Paul still participates here. He sent me the last version when I asked.

I would really like to see the website have more of a knowledgebase beyond just the discussion forums.

Unfortunately, the people running the servers seem to be literal teenagers trying to figure out a hosting company on the fly. Even our existing non-forum content has been down for 3 months.

I'd love to document this kind of stuff in the future. Just to give people breakdowns on the various projects in progress and their status, why you'd want to use one versus another, etc.

But to answer your inquiry, the P&S controller is still available and seems to work just fine.

Thanks guys!

Matt, there's a billion other web hosting companies. Maybe, someone can compile data on this thing. A website forum would be great place for Paul to get
feedback for new version too.

jbman, I saw that MG, bad ass dude!!.

It's good to know ya'll are satisfied.

I got a response from Paul via email and it answered a bunch of questions. I guess I'll pick one up as soon as I can and give it a play.

What kind of IGBTs are you using? I'm going to try one from an '02 Prius.

Honestly, I got all three off of aliexpress for about 100 bucks. You will need three. I don’t recommend that source, but it is super cheap so I figured I’d take the gamble. Part is CM600DY-12NF.

General assembly instructions here: https://www.instructables.com/id/200kW-AC-Motor-Controller-for-Electric-Car/

I’m running 200 volts at 1000 amps peak, no issues with the controller. It’s nowhere near pegged. The IGBTs you pick will determine the rating.
