This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum:

Vector Mode fully Stable

Due to a series of straight out mistakes I actually didn't have the shaft encoder wired up correctly.
Last night I wired it up properly, enabled it and ran the motor flawlessly in Vector mode.
Now to put in my configuration for accelerator control. I guess I'd better build the mount for the accelerator pedal sometime soon.

Later edit (so I have these documented somewhere).
The motor values I entered into the controller for were:
22kW, 2960 RPM, 100 Hz, 41.3A, 440 V, 0.78 cos theta.
Param  Value
22     88.5 Motor MaxA
23     50 Gen MaxA
81     22 kW
87     2960 RPM
88     41.3 Nom. A
89     100 Hz
90     440 V
91     0.78

Which resulted in the controller's auto-tune setting these values:
Param  Value
82     0.044
84     97.77
85     0.9
92     17.8
