I'm not sure if this is is where I should ask this but is it possible to use the VARIAC as a DC motor controller from a DC battery source? The thing goes like this: The 48V, 3kW DC motor is connected to the VARIAC. The VARIAC is then connected to the 48 V battery source.
The idea was actually from a Chinese guy and I'm not sure if it's possible. I have consulted with my professors and they don't believe it would work. I am also researching about this but there are not enough articles and forums to support this.
Thanks for anyone with an answer.
