Winding update

It turns out that I made an error in assuming that there must be an even number of slots per pole. There is a method of winding called lap winding (as opposed to concentric winding) that allows almost any number of slots per pole by winding coils with constant pitch. I will post more as soon as I learn how to do that in this case.

Hi. Has Kermit totally stopped progress or will you get back to it at some stage?

I'm still making progress but I haven't updated the blog in a long time. I've been advancing on two fronts, charging and motor controller, and will post soon about both of those. For now, it looks like you and I are headed in similar directions-- modifying a VFD to be more suitable for EV use.
