The issue I'm running into, which I don't fully understand, is that the motor is drawing 15 Amps while spinning the shaft at a constant 600 RPMs. My power supply won't go higher than 15 Amps, so I'm unable to increase the speed. This amount of current draw seems very high given that the shaft is rotating at constant speed. Note that I measured the no
