Story to be continued ...

 

2019-04-07

Had a lot of fun during the last two days telling people about my little hobby at energy exhibition. At least I got a good resonance. Some people liked my stuff some hated it (no sound, using not environmentally friendly batteries, etc.).
But after short conversations I got them to change their minds (some of them, not all) by showing them pro/contra of e-mobility. 
Also the bicycle gave a lot of fun for people/kids who tried to pedal it at stand up, trying to grap the handle bar and so on.

Equal to the last two years of experience the second day was more efficient with lots of more conversations regarding the little spring street festival and the shops were open Sunday at my hometown „Hirschaid“.

The biggest moment was a as a vocational school class, who got an innovation price for their build up of their diy little e-scooters, came to my booths using as meeting point before their award handover. They were asking me a lot of questions regarding my project and it made really a lot of fun telling them about the history of my hobby.
I also had now a good conversation about batteries and their future and got an information that Israel will be the actually world market leader in this technology but that information I had also to proof now because I can’t believe it actually.
People told about Chinese electrical cars running in China from brands we have never heard about and they will have absolutely no problems with their infrastructure. But I also think this will be prestige projects at only some points there. I my point of view big SUV‘s for cities will not change our future, because there will be only a handful people who can own such a car and I am not one of this group 😀. But that’s another story...
At least I wanna say thank you to Mr. Seuling and his team for their invitation to this energy exhibition, element-e, at Energiepark Hirschaid!

Temporary mounting of SD300 controller and cleaning day for energy exhibition.

As you can see, it was not so easy to mount him inside the mainframe.

I need two ropes and a 2 tons car lifter to get it in.

Got my new controller from Scott Drive (SD300).

800 VDC, 600Arms, 29lbs, over 300kW output power for the motor.

Prepare now a second cooling system via peltiers (576W, 12V) to get the temperature of the liquiid as low as possible to get the most power out of the controller. Well I calculated a 8,4 Ah (30C) LiFePo battery to run the system around 6-7 minutes in total. So enough for the 1/4 mile!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2019-02-12

Get now new kill switch which will be connected between 12V power system of controller and the leather glove
