Hello people, I used to post on here a couple of years ago but I can't remember what my old account was or it might have be deleted but anyway a short introduction, I'm Brad the Design Engineer for the Lynch Motor Company.We manufacture axial gap PM DC motors in the UK, we are the parents of the ETEK motor.
Ok the Speed controller project I'm basically testing the water to see what the interest is in developing an open source controller. We already have a beta prototype stage unit that we have spent a few years on in house it is IGBT based, full H bridge and capable of up to 240V DC and 400Amp current. We have run out of time to really push it forward and instead of mothballing the project I'm trying to convince the company that letting it run free as an open source project would be the best thing to do. The only caveats would be some kind of non commercial development clause and no liability as 400amps at 240V DC is a lot of energy to play with.
So I'm Looking for your thoughts, feedback and any interest in working on it.
