The diameter affects torque in two ways.
First, the diameter relates to the radius and this affects torque linearly by simply providing more "leverage". Secondly, the larger diameter linearly increases circumference which in turn allows for more magnets or magnetic material. Together theese two make up the D^2 component. You do not have to change number of slots, nor do you have to change the magnetic polecount. It's just scaling like with the L. If you do change polecount, or the width of the teeth for that matter, you are obviously changing more than just D and then k would change. Same goes for changing thickness of magnets of airgap. 




Please keep this thread on topic
Folks,
It has come to my attention that this thread is getting off topic. So I will reiterate what this thread is NOT: 1) Not a place for "hey what's this motor?" 2) What motor can I use to fly a 250g heli? 3) General disagreements about formulas It is for motor formulas that are helpful for those who want to learn and understand the underpinnings of brushless motors. I will update the formula list as needed and I will delete those thread which do not belong here. Thanks, Bryan 



got iron dimensions, lack of electric related informations
Is there a way to calculate (or roughly guess?) what can you expect of
DIY motor, if you have following informations 1.dimensions of stator (diameter, thickness, number of poles, ...) 2.bell diameter 3.dimensions of magnets For example, I got these: 1. stator diameter 20,7mm, stator thickness 4mm bell diameter 27,5 magnets 12pcs 6,5x5x3mm total weight 28gram very small airgap you have to force stator to turn with formidable force stator is not wounded yet, but I can get my hands on wire of any thickness 2. stator 22,2mm, thickness 4mm bell 27,5mm magnets 12pcs 6x4x2,5mm weight 26gram very small airgap you have to force stator to turn with formidable force not wounded, 3. stator 22,2mm, thickness 4mm bell 27,5mm magnets 6pcs 5,5x4,5x2,5mm weight 24gram very small airgap you have to force stator to turn with formidable force not wounded, 4. stator 22,5mm, thickness 4mm bell 28mm magnets 6pcs 5x5x2mm weight 20gram bigger airgap you have to force stator to turn with smaller force not wounded, I have 0,325; 0,4 and 0,5mm insulated wire for transformer windings, but I could easily get any wire. I think this is a bit awkward approach, but, any ideas?

guys, this looks like graduate level formula talk how about a simple formula to work with since most of the data bases are way out of date.
Very simply, I have a 2505 ... 12 poles/14 magnets ... I'll wind dlrk. I want to turn a 10" SF GWS prop on 2 cells, on a 10 oz 3D foamy. I'd like around 10 amps. In my mind a formula would be # of turns ... awg wire ... and termination. Now that would be a formula I could get my mind around and use. Any help ... please 



People are always asking about turns and Kv. Here's the equation that relates # of turns (Tx) and Kv (Kvx) for a given motor and termination:
Kv1*T1 = Kv2*T2 = Kv3*T3 =...= Kvx*Tx = Constant Some common simplifications used by those who rewind motors: T2 = Kv1*T1/Kv2 Kv2 = Kv1*T1/T2 ...and to be sure, the constant is different for different motors. Different magnet numbers count as different motors here. Different terminations can be related with the root(3) rule, which relates delta Kv to Y Kv. The root(3) rule is already listed in the first post. Cheers, Kev

If you mean true LRK 6 coils (on 12 slots) with 14 magnets (14 poles) steel ring Scheme AbCaBc Delta connecting I would say Kv roughly 2000 rpm/V for 2208 stator size But the real world Kv depends also of magnet total volume and airgap if you mean dLRK 18 turns per tooth (36 wires per slot) Kv around 1000 Louis

T is the number of electromagnetically effective turns wound around each stator pole. For example, a multistrand wind with 3 parallel strands may physically have 36 turns of copper on each stator pole, but you would use 12 turns in the equation (to be consistent with EM theory). Same rule counts for half parallel and full parallel winds. Physical turns equals effective turns for a standard wind.
Kv is the specific speed constant of the motor (in RPM/V). One of the three fundamental constants that define motor performance. Kev 



I've looked at all these formulas and I never see anyone take into account the phase shift beteewn I and E and we know that as rpm increases so does the phase shift so it's no longer I times E as you nwould figure in a simple dc circut

who has a clear and simple motor/prop thrust /amp draw/cell count chart
thanks a bunch! Greg T
