3000W with >90% efficiency?

Post by sven_nilsson » Jun 18 2014 5:29pm

I just found this:

http://www.uumotor.com/wp-content/uploa ... V3000W.pdf

It looks interesting, and there is nothing obviously bogus about the results. However, the high efficiency occurs at very high (~1000) RPM, which makes it not very useful unless you have smaller rims.

Comments? Does anyone have experience with this motor? I'm looking for a more lightweight and less powerful (~1000W) motor with a similar high efficiency, but they seem very hard to find.

Just a Cromotor clone. similar to quan shun 3000W. It is a good motor

Sure, at no load full speed, efficiency is great. ( if the winding isn't saturated) It's producing close to no torque at that point.

I might get dope slapped for this, but my impression is that a wider magnet stalls less at slow speeds, so my big motor seems much more efficient under heavy load, at half no load speed. Hard to prove this, but the big motor climbs a hill faster at 1500w than a small one. The difference is not huge though, since 1500w only does but so much when climbing a steep hill.

Similarly, a gear motor running at 1000w seems to climb a hill much faster than a dd with the same power. The gear motor stalls at a much slower speed due to the reduction gearing.
