Last night the first full Robomo charge was completed,
at about 28 amps DC, apparently without upsetting the car.
Excellent, should we start a repository for files on this project? github?
I'd like to start with the robomo canbus communication protocol as pulled from the leaf's canbus, only if Mr. Robomo feels its ready of course.
I can then add my 3d files for the connector and specs for the pins, though they will be paralleled on the thingiverse.
To get more collaboration, we need motivation, to get that, we have to have something to work with. A canbus guide and photos of it working is great motivation!
the next version might be tough because we might start from scratch instead of using existing designs.
I have an idea in my head for a machine that winds litz wire, with 3d printed parts of couse
I was thinking of a small version of this:
But this is where we need someone who has knowledge of HV and switching power supply transformer design. (RF power transformer ~ 20khz?)
If you can answer these questions, we need your help!
how thick do the strands need to be? (calculate skin effect?)
how many strands do we need? (total power without over heating)
what is the total length to wind the RF power transformer? (how many windings on the transformer?)
