No, I didn't release an open source version, and it depends on the Nissan charger for logic, just by adding a 3.4kW boost.
Have you considered a "drop in" bidirectional on-board charger for the Leaf? Do you believe it would be possible/economical? Nuvve makes a bidirectional charge controller for our US split phase power systems. I'm tired of waiting for a CHAdeMO power converter (Quasar, Nissan, dcbel, et al) that never seems to make to the US market AND costs $$$$$'s. I've got to admit that the dcbel looks very interesting - if it is an actual piece of equipment that meets it's specs.
My 2012 Leaf could sure use an upgrade to 6kW+ also!
Next, when you design/sell the on-board charger, what about a charge controller that will auto transfer to a home backup system?
I was bummed that the Model 3 was not bidirectional. I jumped the gun and told my Daughter that her new Model 3 might be able to eventually interact with the grid.
