DIY Electric Vehicle Conversion

Saturday: Project Design, AC or DC, Lithium or Lead or ? A discussion of the may configurations that a conversion can take. Sunday: A semi-technical discussion on the design of the AC or DC drive electronics. This guy really got into it. 6 conversions will be on hand to examine. The discussion will 1) go over how electromagnetics works, and what we give to the motor (current) and it's effects, 2) go over how we create the variable current (PWM), 3) then introduce the circuits required to create the PWM (i.e. motor drive).
