I recently build my board. The same setup as a friend of mine, but I’m missing a lot of power.
Specs: DIY VESC Single 190 kv 3150 watt motor 12S1P Lipo (20c) 5000mAh
Here is a log of a recent run
I have 2 problems. At 50 - 75% brake, the regenerative current gets to high and as a result it stops braking. This gives really dangerous situations. The max braking current is set at -12A, but as you can see above at 7:31:39 PM at about -3A it stops braking as a result of over current.
Also I miss a lot of power. My setup should run 40A easy, but the max current (full throttle uphill) is not more then 16A. Also the duty cycle never is more than 50%, regarding full throttle. Could anyone look at my settings or suggest what could be wrong?
