Many people think that they need a 80A power supply to run ODrive motors at 75A. This is not the case in general, since the motor current != DC bus current.

We should implement a DC bus current limit feature so that people can safely use not-crazy power supplies.

At the same time, we can make a note about how to dimension the power supply: using output power specification.
