   AC  brushless motors have a non-linear response between supply
and speed, it's like a 220V lamp supplied from 180V to 220V, the
effect is negligible...a good but expensive choice is to modify supply
       Asimple solution is to use a DC brush motor and to modifie with
a triac (thyristor and bridge, or transistor ) the efective amplitude of
supply, using a PWM algorithm.
