Re: Greatest boxers of all time ?

So you are sayinf Mayweather wasnt even the best boxer to pitch against McGreggor !

Re: Greatest boxers of all time ?

But didnt Mayweather distroy MMA champ McGreggor, in Vegas. ? Let's see mayweather give it to McGregor in the octagon without queensbury rules the fact he stood toe to toe with the best in weight class is no easy feat. McGregor was picked for his style of fighting, a ground and pound expert would n...

Re: Hover board motors for mountain board

Don't expect to much continuity between them I had 4 motors and only 2 were identical, all the cases had the same pattern size and shape but internally there was different bearings used with differing OD on the stator and the end caps used differing casts. It leads me to believe the manufacturing of...

Re: The tipping point is just a few years out

Problem we have is POLITICS. The tipping point has come and gone the issues are more to do with what nipple we are used to suckling on, if the oil had dried up in the 90's do you think we would be immobile 20 years later ? Nope things would change over time as they always do but the main issue we ha...

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

Induim gets doped with iron to make it magnetic for industrial uses so my educated guess is that over time the Induim will become magnetic at least on it's surface, I don't know if you have look at the galvanic corrosion properties but it's the enamel on the winding that will have to form a seal for...

Re: Pre charge Resisitor?

Yes you need to switch the resistor in then out and over to the main breaker after the system has precharged, you may want to monitor voltage with a multimeter to work out how long the capacitive side of the controller takes to charge if you don't have a volt/amp meter installed.

I Think the encapsulants accelarated mass needs to be considered to as well as that extra mass increasing the no load current what a massive juggling act.

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

I came to that conclusion keep the switching frequency low as possible for the mosfets switching efficency but high enough to be well clear of the L/R time constant. The Torque/current in the motor is self regulating in normal running circumstances the faster it's spun the larger the back emf become...

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

I've had a think about what's going on. There's two frequencys, the pwm frequency that has a duty cycle to control the amount of voltage the coils see. Then there's the erpm, the voltage that the motor sees from the pwm signal will spin the motor at a certain rpm that is then calculated by the amoun...

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

I think iron will be needed in this motor at least for the great increase in magnetic strength it brings. But the casted zinc? I’ll be seeing what resin I can find that could be vacuumed into the winding first and hopefully not breakdown w the heat of the casting. 650c. Almost heat resilient enough...

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

If an ac current were being fed through the coils at a fast enough frequency to produce eddy currents the iron teeth would be heating up especially as it’s feromagnetic and would be heating through hysteresis as well as Eddys. But they don’t heat through these and the frequency is not fast enough. ...
