Hi Guys,
Could you advice on the minimum starting torque of the motor?

Moment of Inertia of the 1200mm dia cylinder is 52.5 Kg m^2
The cylinder is run by wheel that has 38mm diameter and runs at 230RMP

Is the cylinder attached to the wheel? In that case, it's the two moments of inertia added together. If one is driving the other (i.e. the wheel-cylinder interaction is like a gear system), it gets a bit more complicated, and since it's been a while since I had to do a system dynamics problem, I can't give an exact answer.
