I have an electric wheel designed for an electric bicycle conversion. By my understanding, the wheel is essentially a 48V, 1000w rated brushless DC motor. It comes with a thumb throttle and kill switch built into a break lever.
I am looking to set it up as part of a stationary rig to do some testing and want to run the wheel on AC power. The wheel has no regenerative breaking so only draws power from a battery (not included in the kit).
Instead of wiring the positive and negative terminals of the motor to a battery, can I wire them to the appropriate terminals of an AC-DC transformer adapter such as this one and plug this directly into mains?
If not, what extra components do I need to include?
