If you find a test motor, let me know the rated current and I will see if I have a motor in the same range. It could give some starting numbers?

When I get my controller, I will match up one of the 75 HP motors from the day job (30 HP @ 208, should be about 75 HP @ 575). The oldest and least efficient one that I can find - my 30 HP surplus test motor is about 20 years old.
