Re: CHAdeMO bi-directional

I might be interested if the power specifications meet my needs. Is the output 3-wire 120/240 volts, 240 volts only, or 120 volts only. I trust that it is a true sine wave inverter, correct? What is the capacity in kW?

$4000 for a power inverter?

I cannot see this as mass produced product.

I can go to Harbor Freight and get a $50 1500 watt inverter for my 12 volt battery on the leaf..

may not last for weeks, but days?
Limited market which could change rapidly if we get the right forces moving the proper direction. Its like the $500 VCR, enough demand and the price will drop. I think as coal drops off with NG to follow, having this kind of option might be more attractive.

I've learned that Nissan will void the battery warranty on vehicles that are being used for power export. Obviously they can't tell on the 12V side. No idea if the BMS logs V2G/H sessions. I believe Nissan is working on a certification spec for under 10kW so you can do V2H while still keeping the battery warranty intact.

That said, Princeton Power went out of business last year (they did the hardware for the V2G trials at LAAFB), so your current options are the Setec or up-and-coming Wallbox. :| In Japan they have a few other options, but all of them are very pricy.

That's what I figured.

Co-worker w/an (ICE) DeLorean told me about the virtual meets they do now. He told me about an EV conversion of one in Japan.

I've only had a chance to watch part of https://youtu.be/ZuCkvbwm4cs, so far on it. It has a CHAdeMO inlet and can do 2-way power, as he shows at ~3:31. At ~2:50, he starts talking about CHAdeMO on his car.

The PeugotRenaultVolvo V-6 that was OEM wasn't great, but I hope he manages to get a better than 25kw motor into it eventually! I'm guessing that he kept the transmission to help make up the power deficit. If ever there was an ICE car that should have been an EV from the start, though, it's the DeLorean...

He has plenty of kW motor with that orange flux capacitor on top of the battery pack

I now have captured the details on the 0x200 V2X messages that are present on 2013+ AZE0 LEAFs. This should help during development of DIY solutions: https://github.com/dalathegreat/leaf_ca ... 16d1030c00

Attached is the V2X section of my 2021 Leaf's manual. Not much description, but alludes to an "option" of V2X. Is it possible that there is a correlation between this "option" and inclusion of these messages in the new Leaf's programming? I'm hoping to hear back from the US rep that handles V2X questions - but have my doubts I'll learn much!

All 2013+ LEAFs are capable of V2X. It is just the ZE0 2011-2012 version that is only Chademo v0.9 compatible, this one needs a VCM update in order to support V2X.

Depending on your LEAF generation, they allow different amounts of discharge. Here's some data I've found for minimum SOC:
2013-2017 LEAF, 62%
2018+ LEAF, 7%
eNV200, 77%

So Nissan definately allows for a more usable V2X solution on the ZE1 models!
