Indian Is a country where power is always a issue .In My home state Punjab We Have Power Shedding [ Power Cuts ] And They Are Really Long .Survival Is Very Important As All Household And business Activities Are Halted During a Power Cut .As We stay In Mohali a Small Town In Punjab We Have Large And Long Power Cuts Here .The timing Is So wierd That Our Battery Powered Inverters Are Also Not charged .Have a Look At a Example :
Power Cuts Example :
- Electricity Goes At 10:00 Am To 12:00PM
- For 2 Hours Battery Based Invereters Are Drained Out
- Electricity Comes At 12:00PM and Remains Till 3:00 PM
- 3 Hours Is Not suitable For Recharging Large Batteries .
Also My Wife Needed a Solution To Her Business during These Conditions As Her Machinery Is a Little Heavy And Does Not Run On Inverter Power .So I Decided To Buy a Generator .
Our Home Inverter
The Massive 150 AH Battery To Power 500 Watts Of Home Load Just Bare Enough To Run Some Room Lights And Fans In The Hot and Humid Environment In India .The Worst Issue Is When The Voltage At the Back Drops ,This Prompted Me To install a 4 KVA [Overkill ] AC Stabiliser To Stabilize The voltage Comming To The Inverter Otherwise At Night and Many Parts Of The Day Even When Electricity Is There The Inverter Used To Be On Battery Mode.I Am Planning to Replace the AC stabiliser With a CVT Soon .
Buying a Generator Was a Very Frustrating Experience .Have a Look Here - > The Frustration
