I’m wanting to make a few modular 6S5P liion packs to power a couple different builds. For my longboard I’d like to run 2 packs in series (12s5p) but charge on-board in parallel (6S10P). I’ve got the wiring of this figured out with a way to isolate the charger port so I don’t create a short but I’m not sure if I can configure a the VESC so that I can still use Regen in this configuration. So I have a couple questions for the experts here…
- Can the VESC output and Regen at different voltages?
- Can I just pump back a higher voltage to the BMS during Regen?
- Do I need separate charge port on the BMS and use a stepdown to get to the proper 25v?
- Anyone else doing this that has some tips/tricks?
The cells in using are 30Q and the BMS I’m considering is this one: http://www.bestechpower.com/222v6spcmbmspcbforli-ionli-polymerbatterypack/PCM-D345.html
Thanks in advance for your help!
