5 thin strands doing 10 turns each is the same inductance as 1 big strand doing the same 10 turns pretty much, as apposed to one thin strand doing 50 turns and greatly reduce the kv

Inductance decides kv and the resistance produced is an unfortunate by-product. A correlation you find works in a specific motor design with specific parts but if you compare other motor designs (axial or transverse) or using different conductors (aluminum, multi strand, carbon), or maybe even different sizes, I think you will get a different ratio which I'd like to see. But even with the same parts it's possible to get greater or lesser inductance with the same conductance depending on how well the wires are wound. If you do a bad job winding and the turns are messy the inductance is not as much.

I think it's interesting info and valuable to a degree but it's not a causal relationship or one that reveals a relationship between conductance and inductance universally

Motor:

-Delta

-100kv

-50 turns

-1 cross section

-1 copper volume

-0.08300 ohm resistance lead-to-lead (0.0415 ohm VESC detection)

-12.04819 siemens conductance = 1/0.08300 ohm

KV Formula For Motor:

100kv = A x 1.73205[Delta] x 50

KV = 100

A = X = Constant(motor)

B = 1.73205 = C(termination) <- Must be 1 for Wye Wiring or 1.73205 [sqrt(3)] when Delta Wiring

C = 50 = turns

This formula can be rearranged to:

A = 1.15470

Therefore:

Formula For Test Motor:

100kv = 1.15470 [A] x 1.73205 [B -- Delta] x 50 [C]

100 = 1.15470 x 1.73205 x 50

B = 1.73205 = C(termination) <- Must be 1 for Wye Wiring or 1.73205 [sqrt(3)] when Delta Wiring

-4.01606 siemens conductance = original 12.04819 siemens / 3 = 1 / 0.249 ohms <- 1/3rd as much conductance

Formula For Re-termination of original Test Motor From Delta to Wye:

57.735kv = 1.15470 [A] x 1 [B -- Wye] x 50 [C]
