Today we worked on the charger. We wanted it more user friendly. Having it more "automated" allowed me the safety officer and head electrical engineer for the project not have to be there to charge the pack up. We were lucky to find a power supply at our school that would allow analog signals to control the charger. We have been trying to get the DAC's on the control board to work. Getting I2C to work on the dsPIC is not fun. We are also interfacing with a 4D 4" display to show battery info. More work needs done on the algrorithem but it is close.
