The Freedom Won Lithium Installation
now begins following the Xmas break and with the surge of Omnicom, hitting the Philippines
now, I am doing the installation myself, to keep safe.
All design decisions have been made with the help of Broadwater’ s Victron and Freedom Won consultant and I begin on Tuesday:
Decided to keep 4 of my Fullriver AGM
Batteries as a Backup 24v House Bank and the other 2 will replace the Main Engine
As we live on board, first job was to create a temporary backup for AC and 24v/12v services, so did this by using the extra 2 AGMs and the GEL Radio Battery
plus the AC Sub Panel to make a clean sweep inside the electrical
locker and upsize the Inverter
Breaker on the Main Panel
This will pay dividends in creating a much cleaner, more accessible electrical
locker, now that I moved the main DC Buss from a high up and in the corner location to right beside one of the access doors.
This is how I have now arranged the backup 2007 Multi 3Kw; the new Multi 5kw; the AC Sub Panel; a new Skylla-IP65 charger
and the 3 x Manual Transfer switches that will select either Shore/Gen or Bypass and a 4th MTS that will select either the Multi 5kw or 3kw will go to the main Board.
Nick from Jedi did a far more sophisticated system, but a MTS I understand and spares are easy to carry.
Next post will be on the plan Overview for connecting.
