The higher the voltage, the faster the motor can move and the faster it can accelerate. This is a good thing but in conjunction with that, the higher the voltage, the closer to a peak voltage for over-voltage breakdown of the controller. Also, the higher the voltage, the faster a rate of change of current can occur. It is a risk with any application to get faster response by moving towards a higher voltage. Typically speaking, it is the dynamics of sudden changes that increases risk by a "x^2" factor whereas the continuous load risk is only a direct ratio increase.

This is because rate-of-change in current is proportional to acceleration which is the square of velocity, i.e. x^2. For safety sake, a 42VDC supply for a 48VDC system gives good margin with little speed losses.
