I've been using a VESC 4.12 for my eBike since two years now and upgraded recently to the new firmware and the new gui.
I also swiched to a more powerfull motor, so I tried to ramp up the current step by step to see the capabilities.
The VESC 4.2 should be able to handle 240A continuous, from the IRFS7530 datasheet (with proper cooling, I know). Currently it's configured at 100A and is doing pretty good, not warming up too bad as I have a fan forcing fresh air in the case and temp monitoring.
I'd like to raise the motor amps limit to something like 150-180 amps to get a starting boost but the GUI is not allowing me to push the max motor current above 100A.
I understand the issue with sine waves and peak current, square root and stuff. So 169 amps should be the maximum for a 240 A peak max.
I can modify the code in the GUI and eventually the firmware but I thought that if the GUI is limiting it's for a good reason. Do you know why ?
Hoping you'll be able to provide an answer,
