 Low Power Electric Motors Explanation:-----------------------------------------------------Note added at 15 mins (2006-09-04 20:49:30 GMT)--------------------------------------------------Electric Motor Power Watts --Heat---- Brakes---- Batteries The power rating of an electric motor is determined by its operating voltage (volts) and on its current handling capacity (amps) at that operating voltage.

The amount of power a motor can handle for a short period of time (seconds or minutes) is called ‘peak’ power and the amount of power the motor can handle continuously (hours – days) is called ‘continuous’ power.

The continuous power rating is the rating most useful for electric scooter/bike applications.
The higher the wattage of the motor the higher the voltage or current has to be.
The device that must supply the motor with all the voltage and current it needs (watts) is the battery.
A motor powered by a battery has a capacity limited to the power capacity (voltage x current output per hour ‘ah’) of the battery.
