New member here, thought I should say hi to the community. My name is Aleksander. I’m an electrical engineer, 25 years old, and my hobby is to design electronics in my spare time. I was a part of a formula student team while I studied so I have some experience with motors and batteries (400V battery and 80KW PMSM motor).
I’m planning to design a ESC (using FOC algorithm or similar) for educational purposes. When I’m done with that I’ll probably begin with a BMS design.
My questions are:
- What do you guys think would benefit the esk8 community?
- Anything that is lacking in the open source section?
- Any problems with the VESC?
- Are there any other hardware designers / software developers on the forum?
I’m hoping to get some discussion in this thread regarding the open source hardware available for esk8. It doesn’t have to limited to ESC, but I’m going to work with ESC design first (again for educational reasons) .
