Comments P.557 right column top paragraph: "Specifically, at high loads (low speeds) a motor can have up to 11 docked stators, whereas at low loads (high speeds) motors typically operate with only one stator (though [investigators] note that the experiments in (ref 13) reported that ∼25% of motors likely had two stators)." P.558 caption to figure 1: "An active motor can have between 1 and 11 torque-generating stator complexes."
