First Drive with new LiFePO4 batteries:
After several months of work on replacing the batteries,
finally managed to go to the first test drive.
The main purpose was to verify the operating range on one
charge and at the same time to make the first deep discharge cyclus.
S T A R T
The batteries were charged at full (3.8 V per cell)
The first stage of the journey raid entrance on the highway D8
Lovosice direction. Car with no problem reaching the speed of 130km/h.
Drive 40km on highway D8
The ends of the highway - exit Lovosice was achieved with
an average speed of 100km/h. Capacity gauge was calibrated
before the race, so the pieces on the scale correspond
exactly to the actual capacity of batteries.
Drive 70km end of highway D8 EXIT Lovosice
After successfully climbing the mountainous landscape
finally discovered TABLE indicator Teplice city.
Drive 100km entry to Teplice city
Capacity gauge needle was a one scale before the mid.
Drive 100km entry to Teplice city - Capacity one scale before the mid
Now comes the last very steep climb through the village Dubi,
Fortunately, all that remains is only a few km to mid test runs.
Drive 104km entry to Dubi village - last very steep climb
Capacity gauge has been less than half of the piece.
Ride 104 km transit Dubi village. - Capacity gauge has been still less than half of the piece.
Finally reached half test drive, Dubi 1 under the
border crossing Cínovec / Zinwald Germany
Half of the route.
Drive 108km Dubi villge half of the route
Last long-drawn Hill reduced the capacity of the rest of the piece.
Needle indicators were pegged right in the middle of the scale.
108km - Capacity gauge needle was exactly in half
Way back strong energie recovery began driving down the hill,
which added some power to battery. No problem has been made a
raid on the D8 highway in Lovosice direction to the Prague.
Drive back 160km after The raid on the highway D8
Drive back 180km on highway D8 direction to Prague.
By that time still conducted with the full electric power.
Drive back 180km on highway D8
At the end of the highway for about 200 kilometers lit
"low voltage indicator" on. (2.7 V per cell).
Next the control unit limited power engine to 50%.
After driving another 16km to the Prag - Čakovice,
the main contactor OFF, and otherwise the vehicle is stopped.
D8 - exit Čakovice - Prag/Čakovice - the end of the journey, the main contactor is disconnected.
