Re: Electric Conversion log for Kahleesea
Don't forget that Volt batteries need their liquid cooling hooked up to safely do anything close to their rated output. That widened bit at the bottom of the long edge of the packs contains the cooling-plate inflow and outflow. They're designed for Dexcool 50/50 mix and it's PROBABLY okay to forgo the whole communications bus that allows reading of the temperature in each cell-pack and just meter the temp of the coolant prior to a heat exchanger. As long as it stays between about 40 and 90F (Gee, ocean temps -- how convenient) you won't need to run the raw water circulator, just the coolant circulator.
