Hybrid Generator Project

Hello Everyone

Here is an update of my Hybrid Generator Project that uses VESC. I am attempting to find out how feasible a VESC is for AC to DC Active rectification (Regen Braking).
My current issue is that the control modes currently available don't necessarily mimic the behavior of a traditional Passive Rectifier (Full Bridge). I need to find a control method other than "Current No Reverse with Brake" that decreases torque proportionally to RPM for a given input value. 

But here is a first test with the VESC setup:

I'm hoping to start generating some power soon. Will post future updates here, and on my YouTube channel.
