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: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

So there will be a relay in between the DC-DCs and the 12 V Battery. The relay will turn on when the high voltage system is energised.
The two purple wires go to the coil.
I will try to get it mounted and partially wired tonight.
