I’ve been using the JVN custom one speed drive calculator for a gearbox design. I understand the spreadsheet outputs a “pushing” current draw per motor (pushing up against a stationary object). But is there a way to calculate current draw during normal driving, say during constant velocity and periods of acceleration?
Currently working with:
2 gearboxes, 1 CIM motor each, 12.76:1 gear ratio
4" diameter wheel, Coefficient of friction=1
Robot weight 50lbs
Currently giving me a “pushing” current draw of 28.90 Amps. Can I calculate current draw while not up against an immovable object?
