I figured I'd put this into the battery section as a start:
I am adding a rear wheel Etek drive into a Honda Insight , as an attempt at Plug in Hybrid assist type of
thing. The Sevcon will power a brushless Etek. For batteries I want to use cell strings from some salvaged
Honda battery backs. Strings of D cells.
To allow this to happen I will have to split the current amongst several strings of the cells
I understand that the charging will be somewhat difficult, perhaps needing a dc-dc converter per each of the parallel strings.
How about the discharge issues?
Will the strings be OK if they are simply put in parallel ? The draw will be 100 amps or so total. My concern is
that the strings share the load in a 'healthy' way.
Still looking for that easy solution for charging this, but that is another thread!
