Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

A couple of procedural questions: 1. Do you push the button on your Android device to take screen snapshots of the CaniOn display during your trip or do you employ some other technique to record and subsequently display the CaniOn information? 2. How did you produce that great altitude and speed vs...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Is the bottom part of the hill (between mile 5 to 17) on an interstate? It seems that going 60-67 mph uphill would be using a huge amount of energy. Of course it doesn't really matter too much because you know you can always coast or regen as necessary to make it back home--but what an awesome clim...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

You went up the hill and used X amount. You regenerated going down the hill at about the same speed and got a little less than 1/3rd of the amount of energy you used climbing the hill back by regenning. I understand that part and agree the return is certainly less than we would like . . . . but it ...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

I'm sorry if my conviction level hit you wrong Joes. I get frustrated with supposition being held up against fact. For people who are not tech savvy, really can't see the difference. I appreciate your clarification of your viewpoint on the most efficient way to drive. Enclosed is a dizzying amount o...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

I'm providing a proposed conclusion born of extensive data collection which all matches up well. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=287&p=36475#p36475 You are putting forth a supposition based on your convictions only. I invite you to take it to the street and find this mythical h...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

b) All other constraints aside , arriving a the bottom of the hill while continuously regenerating will result in a higher battery State of Charge than coasting down the hill exclusively in Neutral; ergo, in ideal conditions, I contend that we can go further regenerating instead of coasting in N. I...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

So, let's revisit this without limiting constraints - For any serious downhill, we have two competing conditions, and are asking which is the more efficient: Coast in Neutral vs. limit car speed using Regen 1. One argument is that the car's electronics draws significant power when the motor is enga...

Re: Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

Shifting to N while at max regen is probably a dumb move--there is a lot of energy stored up in the rotating magnetic field that will need to be dissipated, and blowing up the MCU would increase operating and repair costs beyond any benefit from this mod... Yes I agree, I do a lot of shifting from ...

Re: Supplemental cooling for the charger.

The 2014 OBC looks different than the 2012--is there a small EMI filter box bolted to the lid toward the rear of the car? If you get a chance to open the cover and snap a picture it would be interesting to compare the interior. I'm not sure where you are referring to exactly. I'm not up for opening...
