As at Feb 2017 the 2nd set of 3 coils has been mounted by extending the high voltage cables and forcing the mosfets to carry double the current. This works but still the motor is not powerful enough to rotate at a speed suitable for Guide Wheel retraction. The whole Guide Wheel setup has now been changed. A central Spoke Wheel
has been built and installed and connected temporarily to the Rotor. The existing motorized Guide Wheels have been removed, but will be fitted to the Spoke Wheel later when the motorized Rotor can be tested to a suitable speed. Another set of 6 coils has been fitted, using a Low Side only switching
arrangement. The Spoke Wheel has considerable air friction, but testing so far has achieved 7 MPS or 1 RPS or 60 RPM. More power can be applied by motorizing the Spoke Wheel and this is currently being done.
