DC motor speed controller questions Answered
In the early stages of planning an electric kayak build. Im Brainstorming ideas on how the propulsion system will work and have a few questions when it comes to DC motor speed controllers.
First off i plan on using a 100W 24v DC motor from a old electric scooter.
Not sure on the type of battery yet but it will be a 24V
Now i am fairly experienced with RC Aircraft electronics, but this appears to be a different ball game!
After some research it appears i want a PWM Speed controller that can handle at least 24V.
Amps wise i think i want at least 4 Amps. (Assuming my calculation was correct based off the Watts and Volts )
So this is basically more of a "am i barking up the right tree" question!
As i said earlier this is just early planning stages of the build and i want to make sure i don't make any silly mistakes!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
