| Wow, thanks for the help ..... could I assume you are not a | proffesional electrical engineer being three was no actual help in your | reply?
There's a lot of stuff I can figure out with electrical systems. But when it comes to something beyond my education and knowledge, then I hire a professional or specify to my clients what needs to be handled by someone else (engineer, electrician, etc). I do computer systems, not motors. Usually I'm not dealing much with the power. But when it gets to be a big setup (e.g. 2000+ computers), power is not a trivial issue, nor is A/C. Been there, done that. I'm certainly not about to stick my neck out on electrical power systems.
For fun and theory, I do ask (often quite off the wall) questions here. I like to debate "what would have been" scenarios, and make plans for my house wiring and high current toys. But when it comes to wiring up data centers, I just make specifications about the power and cooling needed ... with knowledge about the code so I can understand complications that might happen and head them off before they do ... and let someone who has the experience, licensing, and bonding, deal with those things in the end. I'm not an electrician. I could wire my entire house, but I can't even replace a receptacle legally at work in most jurisidictions.
If your motor is a toy (and BIG motors could be fun toys for people into motors), getting help here seems reasonable. For work stuff, hiring a professional when you are out of your league _is_ _the_ correct advice. If you or your business doesn't have the money to do it, then maybe you shouldn't even be doing this project.
