Re: Toyota Prius Gen 2 Inverter Controller

You could just scope the encoder output and count the number of pulses through 1 revolution, not sure what to set resolver pole pairs to when using an encoder.

Re: Toyota Prius Gen 2 Inverter Controller

You may require slightly different gains thanks to less than identical component layout? (Just guessing) I’d verify with a current clamp.

Also worth graphing position

Re: [DRIVING] Project RX8 , Prius gen2, Lexus transaxle to rwd

So good news bad news….. Good news is I can no longer hear how many teeth the diff crown wheel has under regen. Bad news is the diff can’t have been the only thing making a noise so I suspect the gearbox isn’t the healthiest. So that leads to the question find another gearbox or ditch the whole moto...

Re: Toyota Prius Gen 2 Inverter Controller

MIVB and MIWB can just remain unconnected at the inverter end. Not an expert with some firmware as I’ve never used it, I thought the v/hz based firmware doesn’t require current sensor feedback? Using an encoder gives actual rotor speed feedback probably means slip angle can me monitored again no exp...

Re: [DRIVING] Renault Clio Electrique -97

Fair enough, I was just reading up on Toyota sync serial comms and thought of you, reason being I have an rx450h inverter here that I’d like to get working via serial. Not sure how feasible finding the ham commands without a working car to log is going to be, if I do get it working, (I have a spare ...

Re: GS450h without external oil pump

I was wondering about an accumulator, but without knowing the flow rate of the valve body it would be hard to appropriately size, and yes you’d have 1 shot at pulling away and need to continue moving to refill it, stop start traffic would be impossible. I think the only solution is keep the pump or ...

Re: GS450h without external oil pump

I think if you plan to remove the external pump then you’ll have to find a way to mechanically lock the output into gear, there’s no way those clutches are going to like being slipped, I’ve not had the ga450 transmission apart but it could be as simple as drilling and tapping the housing to wind a b...

Nothing much in the way of updates, I’ve bought a house so that requires most of me free time, probably a solar panel project coming this summer! I have however acquired an rx450h inverter at a price to good to pass up, I’m hoping to gen it running via serial as over have done for the gs450 and Priu...

Yes I didn’t come into ev’s chasing the eco friendly ideals, in fact with it being -5 here a couple of days ago I have been driving around in a 2.5v6 Mazda bongo rather than trying to get my battery above freezing! But it’s only reinforced how much better I find driving electric
