First power up of boost power supply

First power up of boost power supply
Exploding batteries and the boost power supply
I finally got the controll board working, and the fans and mounting base made and tested. The first full power run was disapointing, and resulted in one of the prius batteries almost exploding.
I switched to the tired 12 V trojans, and got a good 20-30 minutes of playing. The load I used was the same plastic oven as the other power test but the nichrome ribbon had broken. Not very safe.
The 10 diodes are each dropping nearly a volt each, which seems to be limiting the maximum voltage.
More experiments needed, but the circuits are working. I got up to 13A and 145V.
