Oh I've already BTDT many times Jimmy boy.

A PWM motor speed controller is a DC-DC buck converter that uses the motor
windings themselves as the inductor, but it ALWAYS slows the motor down when
set lower than 100%.  You could drive a DC motor faster with the output of a
DC-DC boost converter but that increases battery amps.

Some VFD AC motor drives uses varying PWM to produce a sine wave, just like
a pure sine power inverter or a class D amplifier, but not all VFDs are PWM
based, some are cycloconverter based.

But Jim also mentioned that he's running 18V power tools from a 24V
source through the PWM.

Clearly, 24V will spin a DC motor faster than 18V.  So there's no
'magic' here, just Jim is using a different battery pack through the
tools existing PWM controls.

Curbie will post a chart on how that's not scientifically possible. He
will also argue that anything that falls on the floor goes into a micro
black hole. You just don't understand the principle behind it. These
black holes are all around us... :)

Well that's just as factual as you saying you can create energy from
nothing or 350 gallons will fill a 2000 gallon pool deficit.
More fairy-tails, from someone that truth or reality does not apply
