Speed controller and motor wattage

Post by Ramsart » Dec 04, 2017 11:50 pm

Hi,

Can anyone help my question i have 500 watt 36 volt motor can i use a 36 volt 350 watts speed controller

What are the disadvantage and will the speed controller have a shorter life span?
Is it better to use 500 watts controller instead?

Additional question whats the difference between sine wave and square wave which is better to use.

the 500 watt of the motor is the max, so driving it with a 350 watt controller is on problem.
the sine controller make less noise and can be smoother.
