|Location||Budapest, Central Hungary Hungary map|
|Vehicle||1993 Citroen Xantia |
ICE was 1.8 l petrol engine, 75kW.
Hidropneumatic suspension I. generation.
Servo brake and servo steering system.
|Motor||Kostov DC 6,3/7,5/14 11 Series Wound DC|
11" Balkancar forklift motor from 1970.
93 kg 6.3 kW at 80V 1400 RPM. The
4 poles in series have been connected
in parallel (2-2)for higher speed. The
brushes are also advanced. The original
transmission is assembled by home made
adapter plate. The system is clutch-
less. The original clutch plate is used
|Drivetrain||Manual 5 gears|
|Controller||Open ReVolt 500A|
The high current part is almost the same as
Open Revolt, but instead of micro controller
the old TL494 PWM controller works with
current mode. Hall sensor is used for
|Batteries||45 Tornado, 3.20 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate|
100Ah cells form Tornado Science Groups
|System Voltage||144 Volts|
Home made analog distributed
BMS. Similar to the MiniBMS.
|DC/DC Converter|| |
Not decided. Original 12V lead acid is
|Top Speed||80 MPH (128 KPH)|
|Range||30 Miles (48 Kilometers)|
|Seating Capacity||5 adults|
The original weight was 1250 kg. I hope
the original weight will be kept.
|Conversion Time||started: 18.04.2012|
|Additional Features||The hydraulic pump for suspension,servo brake, and the |
servo steering originally were driven by belt from ICE. Now
an auxiliary permanent magnet DC motor is used. Brushed DC
motor (from treadmill). It is 180V 3LE at 4000 RPM. The belt
gear is 11:6 having enough torque for 175 Bar
pressure(tested an worked from 24V).
|Under construction |
02.10.2012 The project is running. The series wound DC
attached to the transmission gear by home made adapter
plate and mounted into the car. The hydraulic pump assembled
with auxiliary DC motor.
25.04.2013 The 40PCS of batteries arrived. The build of BMS
and Charger is in progress.
25.05.2013 The home made hall sensor based throttle works
First trip with 10 pcs battery cells.
30.08.2013 The process is slow, but there is progress. The
1/3 of the cells are in the car. I have done some short
(road tests). I have discharged and charged cells ones, so
the first cycle has been done :). The max amperage is still
limited to 200A during discharge.
The controller (144V/500A) and charger (9x reconstructed PS
from PC. Each of them provides 18,25V and 13A) are ready
partially. I have already one charger from 9. Takes time to
charge 3x5 cells :).
The BMS I designed works perfectly. It alarms when the
voltage is under 2.5V and above 3.85V. The balancing starts
19.10.2013 Road test with 30 cells (96V) at 200A limit. Top
speed is much higher than at 48V.
