Hello, I am experiencing some issues with my VESC6. Has anyone else seen these?
It seems to measure the battery current lower than the actual current to the VESC. I have verified with a power supply that the values in the RC benchmark window are accurate. The screenshot below is at max throttle, but it is inaccurate throughout the range.
- How is the battery current calculated when there are no shunts on the DC input? Is it calculated from the phase currents?
- Is the "motor current max" limit supposed to be a soft or hard limit? I thought it was supposed to be a soft limit, where the motor current would limit at that value while increasing PWM with the throttle, but it seems to be cutting off power to the motor when I reach the limit.
- The positive ramping time value in the PPM general tab doesn’t seem to work. I experimented by changing it from 0.9s to 100s and the ESC would still ramp at the same almost instantaneous rate.
