Re: [DMCForum] RE: [DML] 50 Worst Cars-What Moron Wrote This?



Martin,

The AC Propulsion system is a true 3 phase AC induction motor and 
controller.  You can read more about it on AC web site.  Seimens made 
some competing designs a few year ago.  Interestingly, they were 
targeting a dual use market-where the controller could also be used to 
generate AC for your remote home-through PV or wind turbine input.

There is a new electric car in India also uses the same AC induction 
motor and controller design.
The reason these units are the top of the line is that they allow 
easier regenerative braking as well as PLC control.

As for brushless DC motors,  I would really prefer these.  The controls 
are much simpler.  However,
at this point in time, there are no high HP motors.    The only readily 
available units are for driving individual
wheels.   Though this is an option, it is much more complicated.
