I've found an industrial 15kW three-phase AC induction motor, and I'm in the market for a VFD to run this thing. It's a Baldor GDM2515T rated at 20HP, 230/460V, & 48/24A ("Full load amps"). It's weight is great for it's power and I like the fact that it's AC.
I've found a...
Has anyone tried using a voltage multiplier, boost regulator or charge pump to get to the high voltages required to run some industrial motors?
Mine requires a nominal of 600V, and I'm working on a boost regulator that can boost from a 120VDC battery pack to a voltage of 600 to 700 volts.
