Well i stumbled upon a time over the brake chopper, and just thought about the wasted energy when either braking without or with a brake chopper.
Since it is absolutely no problem to draw 50 amps + going up a hill, but only charging 10-20 amps while braking (bat max regen setting), there is very much energy lost due to heat because the VESC can’t charge / the battery cant handle this fast charging.
After i read this thread i asked myself, if its possible to use a capacitor bank instead of a light that will soak the power, to regain as much energy for acceleration after braking.
Has anyone had this idea or did some tests? I really this could be the best way for using brake energy, since the cap’s could be charged with much more power than the battery.
