Hey all, Vann here. If you have a background in Power Electronics, and are interested in acting as a consultant, mentor, or remote developer of our Power Inverter project, please contact me at [email protected].
We’re just starting and thus still defining our design parameters (in accordance to OSE Specifications), but the initial goal is to develop an inverter capable of taking up to 72V DC and outputting 120v AC, say up to 5000W. Eventually we’d like one with three phase power, perhaps expandable via modules. And we’d like to do all this using a (so-called) modern, high frequency design, to help keep component costs low.
So far we have Darren of Open Capitalist onboard, formerly of Intel’s Research & Development of Power Engineering, who’s offered his skills on an advisory basis. We also have the inimitable Yoonseo onsite here at FeF. Still, we could use more hands, specifically someone not only with the expertise and time, but also access to accessory technology we need to do this well: a real power supply, a network analyzer, and a programmable load. These things don’t come cheap, so borrowed use would be ideal.
