regeneration

  1. Regeneration modes

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    When in each of the regeneration modes, what is the range of charging output? Assuming an ever-lasting hill, running in 'B' mode, how long would it take to fully charge a Volt battery? Surely there's an engineer out there that would love to crunch these numbered!! :cool: Eric
  2. Regenerating as AC or DC?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hadn't seen the info to know whether regeneration occurs as generating AC to the controller which would change it to DC for recharging the battery - or is regeneration capable of directly producing 'DC' going directly to the battery? I know in 'motor' mode the electricity is AC from the...
  3. Theoretical Max Battery Range?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey folks, This morning traveling over the Altamont Pass here by Livermore, CA, I was re-generating the battery thanks to the massive downhills. When I left my house, my battery showed a range of 41 miles. When I ended up in downtown Livermore, the battery showed a range of 55 miles. It was...
  4. Top Speed While Driving in Low

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    When I think of Low gear ("L"), I think in the traditional sense--a low gear ratio with limited speed. With the Volt, I like using L for regeneration. I'm becoming addicted. So, is there a top-speed when driving in L, or is it the same top speed I would get if driving in "D"?
