This MOSFET R/R is still a shunt design right?
So if the losses are less in the R/R and the resistance of the stator is unchanged,
then total circuit resistance is lower and the max. current would be higher ... thus creating MORE i^2 * R heating
in the stator due to the higher current....

Or am I AFU here?
Isn't stator only one way? So higher Max output of RR Means less draw on stator = less heat.
