Power consumption limits and total motor power in FRC drives
Investigates the theoretical effect of limiting of total robot drive power consumption on drive performance.
The effect of adding more motors to a FRC drive is subject to some interesting subtleties when considering the limitations of the FRC batteries and common current-limiting implementations. A particularly-counterintuitive effect is derived and discussed, and some directions for future inquiry are highlighted.
