Hi Guillermo, welcome to the forum. It's always nice to read that people are developing DIY vfd.
Regarding this thread, I'd like to ask what would be better when filling a stator slot:
1. A smaller number of bigger diameter wires or
2. A bigger number of smaller diameter wires.
I know the smaller diameter wires will fill the slot better but let's assume the both methods fill the stator the same amount. Which method would mean less amp draw at cruising? What would be the difference performance-wise?
