[EVDL] Dump charging from 16.4 volt Nissan Leaf modules to 12 v Lead Acid battery?

2017-09-08 Thread Jay Summet via EV
I have a set of two (older) 6v golf cart batteries wired in series for a 12.5-14.5 volt system. The capacity of this system (measured after an inverter) is around 0.6 kWh, or around 30% of a "new" set of golf cart batteries. I also have a block of 6 Nissan leaf modules, 3 parallel 2 series,

Hi Jay, Indeed an 8' piece of cable 10 AWG copper has close to 0.01 Ohms of resistance. The Leaf modules have about 3 mOhm internal resistance so 0.006 for the series pair but you have 3 series pairs in parallel, so 0.002 Ohms in your case. Now for the internal resistance of the golf cart

2017-09-08 Thread Jay Summet via EV
So, my expectation of connecting your Leaf modules to the two GC batteries with the 10 AWG wire is that the Leaf modules will hardly sag, just go down with being discharged over time, the wire will not drop more than a few tens of volts and thus the GC batteries will be pushed close to 16V with

I'm helping a guy with a used conversion he just bought. It's a S-10 with 96V of Golf Cart batteries, Zilla 1K, and a 8 or 9" motor. Even fully charged - it's acceleration is poor. I was never able to get it to draw more than 200 Amps in any gear at any speed. (Zilla limit is set to 500) About

There is both a battery low voltage limit and a motor high voltage limit. There is also a motor current limit and a battery current limit. You need to set all four to the appropriate values. You never said if you were reading battery current or motor current. Makes a bit of difference. Also,
