I am hoping to make a project EV and am planning on making my own motor controller from an Arduino Uno R3. I am using a 350W 24V 17A Brushed DC Motor that I want going forward and not backward so no need to worry about reverse. And x2 12V Lithium batteries that I will have wired in series to supply the motor with the 24V.
I was advised to use something like a P30NF10 MOSFET within the circuit to provide the necessary power to the motor without burning out the board. In preference I would like to use a breadboard to work on but doubt it can hold the power.
I created a basic schematic (attached) for what I think I need to do but not too sure if it will work or if there is a better solution out there for this. I’m also curious as to whether the resistor will support this circuit and if not, what would I need instead?
I hope to have a LCD Screen displaying the motor power % or RPM in the future and/or potentiometer to control the power output to the motor however I am happy with a simple Depressed Button.
Thank you in advance and any help and advise would be much appreciated.
