in the case of the use of 200 motor amps,

-the single hub motor had 0.0415ohm windings

-battery was assumed ~35v nominal under load

-desired available wattage electrical at all possible rpms was 1660 watts

-settings used were 48/200/200 batt/motor/absolute max

48 batt amps x 35v pack volts = 1680w

200 motor amps x 0.0415 ohm resistance = 8.3 pwm effective volts

8.3 pwm effective volts x 200 amps = 1660 watts

(8.3 pwm effective volts / 35 pack volts) x 100 = ~23.7 duty cycle @ full throttle standstill

in simple terms 200 motor amps & 48 battery amps would have been reached in the event of full throttle standstill.

(less than 200 motor amps possible above ~0rpm)

i witnessed hummie ride around san francisco for as i recall at least a week on these settings.

if he didn't press the throttle fully with the board loaded close to 0rpm it's possible he didn't reach 200 "motor amps".
