Power.... Current.... wattage.... Many people use all three terms as a common denominator. The article quoted use technical specificity " Dumping Current, not power" That is somewhat strange as we all know that current is measured in amps, and power is watts which is volts x amps, so in that equation it still ties a drain to the frame. It in fact does such with a variable ( volts) Bottom line as the article states amps goes to ground, in part through the stator and some through the RR, they both heats up. This is the excess current, which at a certain volts driven or regulated carries a certain amount of power ( watts) is shunted to the frame. The article states nothing we did not already know. The excess current ( amps @ a certain voltage, and so in reality power ( watts)) is shunted to the frame. This being the case the stator is always running at 100%. The floating part is how much goes in the way of system, extras, and frame. It is a very efficient, basic and predictable system. The only drawback is that it always produces 400 watts, which carries an amount of latent heat that needs to be dissipated. I believe our 800 is loosing that battle because of lag of oil cooling ( fixed at later models) and headers adding latent heat from the headers.
