I believe the discussion was braking performance and your specific lack
of data on that issue--a lack of data which did not prevent you from
declaring that "braking distance was OK because I let the ABS kick in".
You are SUCH a tool...

"Electric AC Compressor in Dixie" is the thread title. Regardless,
I'll start a fresh thread once I get some technical details from the
vendor on their 1.5kW inverter.

I would sorta doubt that DC-DC inverter would sustain a 125A continuous =
unless there was some way to dissapate the heat. Some experimentation =
might be in order. Cranking up the current load until 125A is reached.
Have you ever looked into the idea of running an inverter off the =
battery? If so, what sort of current could the MG supply?

The DC-DC converter (not inverter) is part of the main inverter and is
He doesn't have to, that is what http://www.priups.com is for

With the 3 phase, you need smaller thyristors.
