The ESC is rated at 50 Amps continuous with a max current of 150 Amps. I am confused how this BLDC motor doesn't constantly exceed the 50 amp rating.
The BLDC motor is rated at 2900W and can be run from 18 - 42V. If I am going to run the motor with a 36V battery (building an electric skateboard) then the amperage would be 2900W / 36V = 80A when I have the throttle held all the way down. I like traveling at high speeds so most likely I will have the throttle held down all the way for most the ride.
Does this mean I need a higher rated ESC? Or is this fine?
