Short context intro: I am mentoring a project at a youth makerspace, and we are building an electric vehicle from the ground up. We are tight on budget, be we have done an EV conversion project previously. Battery management was a failure point for our previous project though, and we want to do things right this time.
Spending $1000 on a BMS is not what we would like to do if we can build a custom BMS with LTC3300s and LTC680s, that would be a preferred method. (We have two parallel battery packs, and each pack contains 24 LiFePo batteries of 3.2V)
Our we out of our league on this though? We do have electrical engineers that can assist us and we have a fair amount of equipment at our makerspace also.
