EMotor Wire Turn Calculations Help Please

  1. Mar 27, 2017 #1
    It's been like 3 or 4 years since I've built an electric motor & I've forgotten mostly everything and need some help getting this worked out for those that don't mind.

    I'm trying to build a 48V 40-60A eBike motor. I'm using 200C 10AWG Magnet Wire.

    I have a 24 pole stator core. The stator core will be around 1.5" thick with a 5" outer diameter. I can expand it to around 8" diameter & 5" or so thicker and wider if needed though. I'll likely be doing coils over every 3(1" coil, 4.5" per turn wire length) or 4(1.5" coil, 6" per turn wire length), for 8 or 6 total poles.

    I'm trying to figure out how many turns I'm going to need so I can determine the final stator core design & motor diameter and all.

    Can someone help me with this?

    I can provide any other information needed, thanks!
