How much power to produce for BLDC x4

I wish to power 4 BLDC motors using gas generating system. The motors have a max amp of 400A and max voltage of 140V each. How much power do I need to surpass the volts and amps needed?

Are your motors going to be running at full power all of the time? 56kW (70 horse power)?

No they wont, they will be operating somewhat like a drone.

Then you will need enough power to run the average, whatever that is, and enough stored energy to cover the peaks, however long they are. Does that make sense? mike
