Lots of neat ways to mix high tech inverters, batts, aircon, gennies, etc into a very efficient system. Lots of fun playing with the configurations and tweaking designs to fit a need.

Downside is cost and complexity. Added all up and the high tech system is much more expensive than a dumb gennie and simple induction motor aircon.

Just did an investigation on a boat damaged by a lightning strike. Amazing how expensive that became replacing engine ECM's, electronic helm controls, aircon controls, helm electronics, etc, etc. Anything digital was fried.

Still neat stuff.
