I was out for a long ride today, with my VESC 6 and some heavy 97mm wheels. Very nice ride, the VESC 6 surely is amazing. I am using the Metr.at Bluetooth module to log every ride, and today I noticed something weird. According to the data, my motor is always drawing more current than coming from the battery.
Because of this high motor current I experience one “stop of acceleration” as I reached the max current setting of 50A. I was accelerating uphill, with a single Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6374-192kv. The max current was triggered at 17:33:40.
Is it normal that the motor current is that much higher than the current coming from the battery? As an upcoming electrical engineer this makes no sense to me
Any advice would be appreciated
