Linking four(maybe8)24v DC Motors to work together...also possibly a 72v motor as well for a small EV...is it feasible??
Is it possible to connect four,or more(maybe8-even possibly 16!!!is that crazy???) 24 volt dc motors together to run a small ev?The motors were used originally to drive hydraulics on tail lifts at 145bar pressure.Also i have a small 72volt motor as well....can all these motors be linked and run together.To get there'power' to the wheels is a different bridge to be crossed at a different time(so says I optimistically...LOL)!But basically can it be done and how?Is it even feasible?.I will be using the same controller I intend to use for a 48v 120amp DC motor in another EV-the controller runs at 144v and 500amps,but will be enquiring about doubling this.The 24v motors are guestimated to be about 12" in circumference and about 11-12"high(possibly slightly smaller by inch or so).I am not an electrical engineer but am mechanically minded.I also have had a lifelong fear of electricity since being blasted with 240v when i was 6yrs old!!SO PLEASE BE GENTLE!!I know that there are more then enough intelligent and knowledgeable people out there who can maybe help me with this problem which is why I chose to use this forum/site.I really really need your help people.I would be very very grateful for a loan of your knowledge and kindness for doing so.Many many many thanks for your time,your help and most importantly your patience....its very deeply appreciated.Again many thanks.Warren
