Re: Moto-fraud: first rider caught
You do realize that most motors don't just plug into the wall, right? Most motors have a motor controller that create an appropriate voltage DC bus that is used to generate the correct waveform and frequency for the attached motor. You definitely could build a reluctance or induction motor that runs off a DC source. Here's a practical example: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/spra420a/spra420a.pdfsamhocking said:Induction motors (motors without permanent magnets) can only be run from AC. You can't make an AC battery or DC Induction Motor - basic electrical foundation class Freddy! Maybe they plug the rider in using invisible flex to the national grid around France lol!
