SetCommand(_GO, 1, 500)
power1 = getvalue (_P, 1)
print ("Power =", power1 , "\r")

I see something weird on motor power.

I run my code and power's value is 500. If I set motor at 1000, power's value is 1000. It is the same value of "setcommand" ? .

Power is always in Watt. P = V*I, with P = 500 and I = 3.5 A (Current applied on motor is 3.5 A) => V = 166 V. My input voltage is 12 V, it isn't possible to have 166 V .

The power is the motor power being applied. So if the power applied is +500, then the pwm output is 50% and at +1000 it is 100% pwm output.

There should be a sample script that shows you how to calculate that.

It's in the sample scripts under powertest.mbs.
