Getting Started

The open inverter project consists of three main aspects:

  • Reference designs for the control hardware using an STM32F103
  • The inverter firmware, which can control AC Induction motors or Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors
  • An easy to use web interface.

There are two variants available:

If you want to tune your inverter check the parameter description.

Once you have the inverter parts, you will need additional components for your EV conversion:

  • Motor
  • Batteries
  • Charger
  • DC/DC Converter
  • HV Junction Box
  • Other various components

More detailed information on these items can be found on the EV Conversion Parts page.

You might also want to set up CAN communication or use the inverter as a battery charger also.
