Re: [EVDL] BLDC Motor Availability (Was: Q for Lee Hart)

Assuming that you do get a working BLDC controller, (I have no
doubts that you will :) what motor would be available for hobbyists
like us to obtain at a reasonable cost (~$2k) in that 60 to 80Kw
range?

That's sorta why I said that 'if anyone was interested'... I have
a pair of 25 or 30kW BLDC's so I am doing up the controllers for
my pair of motors. If anyone else has them then great, but if
anything, I just need a pair of controllers for myself.

Please don't get me wrong, I am very interested *and* I also don't
already have a motor. I think that BLDC is really the way to go
except perhaps ACIM as a second choice. I would love to have a BLDC
system in the 40 to 60kw range with regen, etc.

Would those Ford surplus motors work?
