Well... I need help to solve some questions with the settings with VESCTool. I have a little project which objetive is only charge a battery with the wind energy.
- Max Power: 3150 Watts
- Max Amps: 80 Amps
- Max Volts: 12S
- Max Torque: 3.57Nm
- Built in 5V BEC (Used to power your receiver.)
- Voltage: 8V to 60V (Up to 14S LiPo Voltage)
- Current: Up to 240A for a few seconds or 50A continous
- PCB size is 40mm x 60mm
- Regenerative Braking
- Sensored or Sensorless operation
- Great start-up torque with sensorless motors
- VESC complete size is 120mm long, 40mm wide.
- VESC Hardware v4.12
- VESC Firmware v2.18
Li-ion battery 52v, Continus current 15A Max current charge 2.5A from e-bike
Well, I have read all tutorials and information about VESCTool and I have a couple questions:
According the tutorial I must select:
Motor Current Max: 70A
Motor Current Max Brake: 2.5A (because of the Max, current charge battery)
Battery Current Max: 12A
Battery Current Max Regen: 2.5A
battery cutoff voltage:
Setup Wizard for single VESC
- All right with this motor settings?
-In Setup VESC... I have a problem/dude, I don't have a controller because I don't need it. The energy always will be Wind-->motor-->VESC-->Battery so... I don't need configurate this settings right? if I put like 80rpm Max and the VESC detect more rpm's, it will active the brake to not go more than 80rpm. true?? And exactly when do I generate energy? Only when the VESC is braking the motor or I will always generate energy if the motor is moving with the wind?
Enough for now...
Thanks so much! I hope help :)
