will be enlightening.
There are a number of different ways to deal with this, depending the exact equipment
you have on board. If you are willing to get rid of or not use or put on a separate inverterted circuit any equipment
which is really sensitive to the frequency, then you can simply transform the voltage at the source, using for example a Victron isolation transformer, and Bob's your uncle.
OR, if you want the whole boat to have pure, perfect 110v/60hz power, you can produce that with an inverter
or gang of them. Feed the batteries
with a separate dual voltage battery charger
. And once again Robert is your uncle.
I have a boat with a whole lot of AC electrical
equipment on board, and the second thing is what I would do. I have a Victron inverter/charger, through which my normal 230v/50hz shore power
, as well as generator
power, runs. If I were venturing to 110v/60hz land, I would simply add a Victron Orion battery charger
with its own shore power
inlet for 110/60. And that would suit me fine. For any periods where I need more power than the inverter will produce, I would just run my 6.5kW generator
That's kind of a thumbnail; in the archives
you will find much more detailed and technical discussion.
