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:

Start/Run Control Circuit Diagram

The control interface to the Vogue has changed a bit over the past two years. It has got simpler and simpler.
Here is the almost-final circuit.
If the user tries to start the car with the Forward/Neutral/Reverse switch in either Forward or Reverse, it beeps at them. The contactors will only engage in Nuetral.
Also the contactors will only engage or stay engaged if the Intertia switch, Charger lockout and Manual disconnect are all closed.

Text in brown is wiring within the 8 way cable from/to dash to motor controller. Text in blue indicates existing wires in the Vogue loom.The multiple wires from dash to engine bay is because the SW60 contactors are on the passenger side of the engine bay whereas the DC-DC relay and EV200 is on the driver side.

(Note: Image updated 29th April 2011 and again 11th May 2011 when the Start/Run relay was relocated to the Engine Bay)
