Solid State Motor Drivers
As promised, the attached essay is my account of the developments made at New Forest & District Sailablity for several sailors over the last 10 years after I tired of repairing standard equipment. Prototype was proved by Keith Harris at the HANSA Nationals held at WPSA in 2014 and it continued in use for the following 2 seasons. The current version of this equipment now resides in David Durston's LIBERTY.
Anyone who is a professional Electronics Engineer will undoubtedly have comments and I welcome any observations or inputs for future improvement. I am only an Electronics hobbyist myself who started in the era of valves and magnetic amplifiers where my professional colleagues still chanted “Tune for maximum smoke” (If it works, don't knock it !)
I hope this is of interest to the community.
