I am working on a pocketbike conversion and I have a motor that is only rated for 28 amps. My controller is a KDS48100 - so it will do short bursts of 100 amps and then constant at 60 amps. I am trying to limit the amps to avoid frying my motor. But no luck! I used the Kelly configuration program, limited "maximum armature current" to 28% which should have put my at 28 amps, right? Yet I keep seeing 45-50 amps on my ammeter. What gives?
I am using a video camera to gather data, so here is what I am talking about:
Thanks for any help!
