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/

Charger Fan failed!
The faulty fan.
Fortunately for me there has been a large project at work that used these 40mm, 10mm thick 12V fans so I asked today if there were spares - and there were (thanks Brian). The replacement is 0.8W and the bad one is 0.06A (0.72W) but the extra 6.7mA should be OK.
The new fan.
