    Hello .
    I have a 1000w motor and a 2000w powersupply. I was wondering if i can safely run it on 2000w
    Thanks

    Hi
    Welcome to EP :)


    probably but before a definitive yes

    What is the voltage required by the motor ?

    What is the output voltage of the PSU ?

    Let me add:
    In case the 1000W is the rated output power of the motor.
    What is the efficiency of the motor?

    Is 1000W the power consumed at normal running speed? Peak power needed at motor start-up could be much higher.

    A 2000 Watt power supply does not put out 2000 Watts necessarily. It can put out UP TO 2000 Watts. Less is okay.
    Providing, as stated, voltage and all is correct.
