Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. Hope your journey is/was ok, very windy and lots of rain 'Up North' so drive safe. As to the Combi board, been reading about all the bits and bobs on the 'AC controller' forum pages of Johannes and Damien, seems to be a lot of talk about software versions and mods for resolvers and op amps...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. Not sure if the car your talking about will have a comms system, such as CAN bus. I guess if its an issue you could always remove the annoying warning light lamps :-) The ecu will probably be redundant although I removed things and checked what functions were still working as I went, easy ...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. Capacitors checked, but not their capacity ! Spikes should get absorbed I would have thought, still very odd and I wont rest until its virtually spike free. One other thought being the turn off time of the IGBT's ?? If too fast then I guess spikes would happen, but with no motor connected ...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. Interesting, I bet your lower quote is due to location. Up here in the North West we are in one of the highest risk areas in the UK. Just done another test on the inverter. Moved the control pcb to the other side of the mounting plate to see if that would shield the issue, sadly it hasnt s...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve Strange thing is even with motor connected I get the spikes, I am no expert either but have a basic knowledge which is getting weaker as each problem arises! As to EV batteries try contacting Damien Maguire at EVBMW.com, he may have something to sell possibly ?? The spikes are being induced...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. Glad you got your eyes fixed, makes a world of difference when you dont need to squint all the flippin time :-) Progress with my conversion is grinding to a halt as I have issues with my inverter control. Far too much noise on the 5v bus which is really affecting the encoder pulses from th...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Steve. What price are they asking? Just a thought on comparing cost against whats available in the UK. I know a battery company in Yorkshire who refit/repair Hybrid batteries and they sell off the cells that are not up to scratch, cheap too if you buy enough. They do advertise on Ebay but a phone...
