Finishing the hardware

This is the first update for a couple of weeks. I was very busy working on my thesis and the hardware for my project. I've almost finished and installed all hardware in the car. Next steps are to finish the software.

Nothing happened

This is the tenth week and nothing really happened. I'm currently writing my on my thesis so there is no picture to upload or information to write. I've ordered some parts I need for implementing the BMS into the eBuggy. I hope they will arrive soon. Maybe I can post some progress next week.

Test with three stacks

The next has passed. This is what happened in my ninth week.

First system test and some upgrades

There was no update for quite a while, but I was on holidays for one week. I'm back with an entry about the eight week of my thesis. 
I could finally solve all problems on with the BMCs and could ran a first system test with simulated cells and real batteries.

Programming the XC and case for the CAN display

This is the seventh week and a lot of cool stuff happened. The BMC is partly running and the CAN display is ready for integration into the eCar.

I also did the first system test.

CAN display prototype and finally finishing the first BMCs

This is the sixth week of my thesis. Nothing new happened, but I could finally finish the first BMCs and worked on the CAN display.

I'll start programming next week and maybe I can show some nice results.

Problems with customs, still soldering and some paper work

This is the fifth week of my thesis. I know it's annoying, but I'm still not finished with the soldering. The last parts have arrived on Friday, so I'll hopefully finish the BMCs next week.
During waiting, I could work on some other issues.

This is a CAN display I'm currently working on. Everything can be found here.

This is the fourth week of my thesis. It's still soldering time, but I got some nice pictures and the first prototype is almost done. 

There are still some parts missing, but they will hopefully arrive on Monday next week.

Let the soldering begin

The third week has passed and not much happen. I'm still missing some parts for the top layer of the BMC borads, but I've already started with the bottom layer. 
All three BMCs are soldered on the back (that are 64 of 240 parts for each board).

In parallel I've started with the writing part of my thesis and figures. 
This is the first concept of, but it's not the final one.

Well, that's it for now on. Stay tuned for the next week entry.

Still waiting for parts, MAX186 12bit bipolar ADC, LEM with CAN 2nd prototype

The second week has passed. Unfortunately I was busy with a lot of other stuff and hadn't much time for my thesis.

But what I have done, can be found here.

Next week I'll focus on my thesis and hopefully all missing parts will be delivered - fingers crossed.
