I’m hoping someone could help me:
I’m running a custom build of the BLUEROV2 with a 80V 60A power supply set to 19V ,getting up to 40A out of it, 50m cable, leaves about 15-12V during normal operation, which is enough for my use. This worked well on previous ROV’s with the r2 ESCs.
I ordered a new BLUEROV2, which came with the r3 ESCs preinstalled. Now with the new r3 ESCs The power supply shuts off because of OVP: I see the voltage spike up to 26V (where the OVP shuts it off, because I read the limit for the ESCs is 26V). So, I read up on the new ESCs: I believe they use regenerative breaking!
-Could this cause my problems? I couldn’t find any info on this for the older r2 ESCs.
-Is there a way to disable this feature in the new ESCs?
-is it safe to increase the limit on my OVP settings?
I think I connected everything identically to my previous setup. Triple checking the wiring now.
