Certainly it implies an advance yet "The loaded current at 350rpm increased from 3A to 11A with capacitors" is of no benifit if the power drawn from the motor is 4 times as much at that rpm....

As commented with Brucedownunder's test bed, power OUT has no valid reference for comparison without an accurate power IN comparison.

Without that data I can only say the wave form is pretty, but does pretty charge batteries better? Edited by Gill 2008-07-06
was working fine... til the smoke got out.
