Jason asked me to test out the Enertion Vesc-X in a lab environment. http://www.enertionboards.com/?afmc=1o
TLDR here are the results:
was able to pull 40A at 50V before the motors would saturate and got a 30degC temperature rise. To go >40A @ 50V I would need to change up my motor jig to load up the system even more. So that’s 2000W constant, and the Vesc-X temperature only raised to 50degC. That means there’s another 50degC headroom and could probably handle up to 90-100A @ 50V constant!
Now my setup:
-15KW power supply -Master-slave motor jig, slave motor has all phases shorted together (this motor was already burnt), the master motor drives the salve -The slave motor will dynamically load up the master motor until it saturates, in this case the maximum load was [email protected]
I will try to find some bigger motors to ramp up the current even more… but do i really need to?
