You are the one putting forth the hypothesis; the burden of proof is yours. My experience tells me that your second quote in my post #5 is an invalid conclusion drawn from what may be a completely valid paper. I am not arguing the paper.* edit: I just rechecked your paper and see that the paragraph to which I object is in fact included as 5. Conclusion. So I guess I do take issue with your paper.


Have you noticed that the torque to power ratio differ between different motors?
That the ratio gets higher as the motor gets bigger?
Do you agree that its beneficial to have a motor with high torque to power ratio?
Do you agree that its beneficial to have a generator with low torque to power ratio?
