### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

Your pencil has finite thickness. Your compass is not perfect, you have to visually set it to the right width. My calculator can EASILY outperform your not 100% accurate drawings Yes but use an infinitely fine pencil & perfect compass & use the same geometric steps to make the same drawing ...

### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

Look you can draw circles and squares all day, but I don't understand what you're getting at . @rew If one wants to represent the square root of 3 with 100% accuracy in decimal form this takes infinite paper volume (more paper mass than the entire solar system including the sun and jupiter... in fa...

### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

With 1/3rd the copper, you cannot get "identical performance". Because I think you can substitute thinner wire (but same number of turns) at no damage to the KV, it is easy to create a configuration with the same KV, but less performance. Thinner wire, or "less copper" as you sa...

### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

OK. Now I get it. Suppose I have two Y wound motors. One I rewire with thicker wire to make the end-to-end resistance 3x smaller. The second I rewire to delta. You will not be able to measure the difference between the two changed motors. Terminal resistance and KV will be identical. A useful insig...

### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

I guess i'm saying KV is inversely proportional to the number of turns. You're saying that resistance is related to the square of the number of turns if you keep the copper volume constant. True. So now KV becomes inversely proportional to the resistance. Call the inverse of the resistance conducta...

### Re: code to change the motor amp limit

@Rew-- lets compare your formula with my assertion that kv changes are proportional to the square root of conductance changes using only this information: KV = Constant(motor) * C(termination) * turns. C(termination) is 1 for Y or sqrt(3) for delta wiring. ^ @rew -- this formula appears to confirm ...
