I'm running a battery, so maybe no need for a cap? I will try one regardless. What you described is pretty much my plan, run a cap with my single-phase setup and try a few configurations until I get the current/voltage balance I'm looking for. The battery is 2.3Ah, so I think I will just set up the system to be efficient at 10k rpm, which is where it lives whenever it isn't idling.
