Here in the forum an example was brought to get a high inverter
power, e.g. to cook with an induction cooker. The Victron Quattro, Multiplus / Mastervolt Power-Assist is designed to boost weak shore power
power. This can be used theoretically (or by forum members here in practice) to connect another inverter
instead and increase its power.
I have therefore contacted Victron. The guy there went directly to my throat in the figurative sense. He insisted, that this leads to problems (which are not covered by warranty) but did not want to say what kind of these vague problems are. Instead, he almost yelled at me that I absolutely have to buy two Quattros for parallel use instead. (each over 3000,- $).
Mastervolt also refuses to connect other inverters to their powerassist function without any explanation, so my dealer told me.
What is this all about? Does anyone know what problems this can lead to? No generator
produces directly 120 or 230V AC, which means that the AC from an AC generator always comes from an inverter.
Is this just a "particularly clever" sales trick, or is there really something in it? It is clear that energy saving functions or other controls of the connected inverter can be switched off, but then exactly the same current
comes out of a 12/120 or 12/230 DC/AC as from the shore connection or the generator. Or not?
Any ideas what the problems might be?
