So here’s whats happening. Using my Bluetooth module and testing my new app, I can see more of what’s going on in my board. One problem I’ve had with this board is I am using a 12s4p 10Ah 18650 battery pack, yet, I only get about 5 miles of range… So I wanted to see what’s going on to cause this.
My route is 4.63 miles. I start at 50.4v and end around 41.2v. Full discharge would be at about 38v. To commute this route, I take about 16 minutes and 5 seconds. I average 2.55 amps from my battery per vesc, so 10.2 battery amps average over the whole system.
Running these numbers through this calculator, for a 10Ah battery at 10.2 amps, I get .98 hours of ride time, or about 58 minutes of ride time. I’m getting about 1/4th of that, so where is all of my electricity going?
Any suggestions on other data I could calculated in my app to help determine what’s going on?
