I belive this was done a long time ago.crap wrote:The power capabilities could be verified by running it as a generator with a common resistive load instead of waiting for a working controller, if that is all that's needed.
crap wrote: It's admirable but perhaps out of place for the designers to take responsibility for finding the perfect controller. Especially since a low controller price seems to be so important, lets not forget that there may be several customers willing to pay for a kelly controller or better. The motor is after all big enough to be useful in larger electric vehicles (motorcycles, gokarts, buggys, small cars...) where the price of the rest of the equipment may dwarf that of the motor and controller.
If the continous power really is 12kW or higher, and a kelly controller can be made to work, it is no doubt usable in electric cars, where the price of a kelly is not an issue. In fact, for the european DIY EV market, EMC certificates are often required. Thus anything cheaper may not even be an alternative, since it likely lacks this important property.
Like I said, it is admirable of you to continue seeking verification of the motors capabilities and controller compatibility, but perhaps not entirely necessary. As soon as someone has managed to push it to satisfying power with whatever controller, I hope it will be made available.

Actually that was two

I am building a 40kW peak motor and I like to use a kelly for the first tests...

It would be nice to find something strong enough for that kind of rpm yet affordable at the same time...
