pink line is based on the Kw-hr readings that the SIADIS program
gives. According to it, a 200 amp lap uses 62% of a 600 amp lap.
trying to refine our data, we have noticed an interesting anomaly.
Amps times Pack voltage By unit of time should give us Kw-hrs.
Yet when we took the raw information from the SIADIS program and
made the calculations, our Kw-hrs were about 5 % less (green line
labeled kw-hrs per mile). Why? And which one is right?
orange line is the kw-hrs used without subtracting the energy
recaptured by regenerative braking.
The blue line is only the energy recaptured by regenerative braking.
We were unable to retrieve the data for the 600 amp run.
regenerative braking data (blue line) seems strange. The regenerative
braking level was never changed yet most energy per mile was captured
at 200 amps, the least at the 300 amp level and in between at
the 400 level.
theory is based on the order the runs were made. First the 300
amp run. Then the 400 amp run. Last, the 200 amp run. I think
I just got better at using the regenerative braking pedal as I
data gives us reason to hope we might do better. The SIADIS readings
may be 5% pessimistic. Properly used, I may be able to recapture
136 watt-hrs per mile at this regen setting.
the other side, these calculations ignore any kind of pseudo peurket's
effect. It is likely that we will not be able to get all 22.6
kw-hrs out of our pack at high amp draws.
