Controller for 3 phase EV motor

What controller do you recommend for the 3 phase A/C EV motor, they do not make the Hughes Dolphin system, what replaces it?

Hi, Mark -

You can find them at Metric Mind.

Alternatively, there's a guy named Eric Tischer who's making AC controllers for EVs, and will be selling them on Ebay. You can google him, or read my interview with him here.

Update 2011: Eric's busy doing other things these days.

But good news, too: the Curtis 1238 can be programmed to control the AC-50 that HPEVS makes for electric cars, and this motor-controller combo costs a lot less. HPEVS sells them as a package.

Best of luck with your project!
