Getting Hot Here

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

On the drive home, the BMS decided it was a) too hot, b) over voltage, c) under voltage and d) really confused as to the state of charge.  Sparky is hereby grounded until further notice.  🙁

So, what I need to do is figure out the following:

a) why are banks of communication failing during acceleration?

b) why are banks of communication failing during charging (different banks mind you)?

c) why is the BMS not remembering the state of charge?

d) why is the BMS not presenting the correct state of charge via the 0-5v output?

Lots of work ahead for me.
