I've loaded my motor with my dummyload so that a torque is required to perform startup.
When I command 90A of motor current, the motor remains stalled. Shoving the rotor results in the motor running leisurely at "only" 35A. IMHO, the VESC6 should be able to startup this motor from standstill in sensored mode. What do you think?
The load is not quite perfect at "constant torque" but pretty reasonable. The torque required to get things running (my shove) in this situation is quite small.
Here you see "idle", then commanded 90A current, then a shove that starts the motor and a few seconds of easy-running at just over 30A motor current.
The odd thing that I'm seeing is that the motor current is reported negative. How could that be?
The current measured going through the phases is nowhere near the 90A commanded. The motor also makes funny noises when stalled like this.
(For my final application, the stalled-startup performance is VERY important)....
