Hey Don, Joseph, Kevin thank you for directing this back to practical useable discussion.
Sean I have no interest in embarsasing you with your obviously very inexperienced beliefs. Go out and stall load, and watts starve enough of all types of electric motors to “burn-stink” learn that AC, DC, brush type, brushless type all bow to “counter electromagnetic force” realities that is engineered into properly selected and used electric motors.
Burn up a few skillsaws. Burn up a few deep well pumps. To learn this cheap.
Burn to learn on the job will loose you that job! Guaran-damn-tee you.
BillS and I have have directly corresponded for a few years now on his projects.
He knows what I use and recommend for these kinds of projects.
1600 watt AC output Redi-Line brand of 12volt DC input co- axizl wound pm motor-generator converters.
30+ years of proven usage in hard commercial all climate useages. Well able to start up real use working electric motors of all types with a 2x surge wattage.
Still available NEW for under $2K USD. $200 - $800 used USD. Craigs list and E-bay. (Ha! Some stolen so do not ask sources)
Only the long lifed brushes ever wear out. Occasionally the 40 watt load sensing electronic turn on-off electronic controller will go bad. Deep six that then for a cheap twist clock timer switch and just keep on walk away generating.
Spares? Set of brushes. A couple of constant duty solenoids.
Real Smart. A second, third complete unit like I have.
" Only one deep of anything really needed is just one step away from having no capabilty. A back-up second capability: once the first is lost and the second back-up put into primary use then you are back to square one. Double redundancy gives you time to get that first in-use, repaired, or replaced"
Past three levels (double redundancy) . . . well that is just impractical anal.
The resources squandered then means you will be without somewhere on something else needful for true Praticals living. Yes Verginia a felolw can certainly have too many guns and too much ammo when he cannot then afford to keep the lights on and the refrigerators refrigerating! His only recourse then is to become the steal it grasshopper scum.
You answered this BillS with three different ways able to potentially generate now. Willing to burn up sacrifice the least capable as a hands-on learning tool.
Much respect. Keep it up man. Talk, and Net quoting is cheap. And worth just what it costs. Cheap and not practical use-proven. Intellectualizing itch-scratch jabber.
Proven results are always expensive. And worth every thing payed to get it.
