AC Controller Project #1.wmv

Here's the latest video of Paul's AC controller.

Originally, Paul started a project of a homebuilt DC controller. With input from many other people, it turned into the fantastic Open ReVolt DC Controller Project. Take a look at for more info on that.

Since that project, many people have been asking about AC motor controllers (variable frequency drives.)
This video is the open source AC Electric Car Controller project that he has been working on since then.

If you are interested in kits for the Open Revolt, you can buy them through Pauls web page:

It's what my Electro-Metro wants to be when it grows up....
