Simple is Nice
While I am waiting for my transmission Flex Plate to arrive on Thursday I decided to take another crack at PIC programming for the second edition of my controller. It's actually not nearly as hard as I originally thought. I am trying a few tutorials and getting the basics down, but this controller will be simple to start. I am taking two inputs, monitoring them and then sending out the PWM signal to the IGBT driver. The inputs are Throttle and Current sensing. In the future, I will add a digital thermometer to monitor the temperate and hopefull an LCD screen for status. But that's only after the basics are done.
