I am a Motor Mechanic for almost 30 years and I want to change to Electric Motor Vehicle. But I want to construct a Cheaper Method of ConversionI have already designed and configured my drive line to attain high speed using Low power input. I am using a light Motor for the Conversion AC 3.7KW Motor with 3.5 Amp Single Phase. I am also designing the Alternative Charging Controlling mechanism to and input controller to top up the Batteries. Using only 6 x 12v 100 am Batteries, I know its low but the Motor will be consuming such low power that it would not need extra Batteries. Now my question What Electrical components, Required I am using a 12 v 1000 w Sinewave inverter, with wellsee power control now setting up the Curtis Electronic Pedal for the variable drive, what mechanism can I use and disconnecting the power in high speed and switching to the alternative power source. Any suggestions.
