It is impossible to "mess up" my threads
I apreciate everyones input.
You wound 9 turns on each tooth? (that is an easy fit with 1.6
) in rc motor terms I would call that: 18 turn DLRK....if you teminated as your diagram shows. Also you terminated in WYE. & yo are still seeing 129 for KV?
As an non schooled motor builder I hanen't really concernd myself with the finite analisis of the end results....phylosophy has allways been---wrap as much of the biggest wire you can get on the damm thing!...
I am now building motors that are capable of drawing way more current than my controllers can deliver....so its time to get a little more conservative. & trust the math, or learn about in-line inductors to be able to controll some ridiculasly low resistance motors reliably...my head is getting bigger but the more i learn the more I realize how much I don't know. (prolly fill a book!
My set up for winding is to get the wire lengths off the main spool & loosly coil it into a plastic 5 gal. pail. I mount the stator on an arbor & clamp it into a vice so I can really PULL the wire if needed.
14awg=1.63mm......I didn't think it was too terible, But I was wearing thin leather gloves that let me pull Wire with malice.
The last batch of magnet wire I bought has the toughest coating I have come accrost yet. (rated up to 200c) I couldn't use the asprin trick for removing the enamel....had to abraid the wire to make the connections.
My fiddle sticks for tightening the winds include a cut down nylon prop with the edges all polished & flamed, & wooden sticks (Hard rock maple & ebony drops from my real job).
About Square wire, I think it would fair well but keeping it from twisting as you wind will be a nusiance.
good Idea about the Kapton tape..I have a roll of very thin stuff I will use as needed.
tonight I will reassemble the stator & maybe re-wind it....we'll see what kind of progress I make. I will get it documented & post it here....
The UPS man droped off what i hope works out to be my World Challenge frame today
We'll see if I can build a 18kw power package I can get 15miles on 25ah's...under 70#s....
Alum frame, carbon fiber motor mounts & battery boxes, 20" wheelz full suspension......multi-championship winning rider (with internationl experiance if canada counts LOL
Hubs schmubs....GET SOME.
Back Later. Thud
