Question: Regarding Topic #4, what specific motor size/class/frame is targeted in order to apply the NEMA standards?
Answer:  The benefits of wide bandgap technology are known to be more advantageous with higher power motors, and so the higher the power, the better.  With this in mind, a proposal for a 50kW motor (or higher) would be appropriate.  Proposals with intended results that are scalable to 100kW or higher after the project is completed would be beneficial.
