Boat Bits With Brian

System Overview for solar, wind, and lithium batteries – Electrical Boat Tech

A compete, high level view of the electrical system on a modern cruising sailboat. I put together a gigantic diagram and talk in detail about each component of the system, and how everything interacts to supply the electrical demand on a modern cruising sailboat. Topics covered in this video:

1) A project recap of the installation of our LIFePO4 Lithium Batteries, inverter, battery monitoring system, and switching to electric induction cooking on a sailboat.
2) A complete walk through of the electrical system of a modern cruising boat. Starting at the power sources (wind, solar, hydro, generator, and dock) Brian explains each part of the system and how everything works together.
3) We discuss the role of charge controllers and how important of a role they play.
4) How much power can we generated with wind and solar?
5) Just how noisy are wind generators?
6) 1 Year review of our Induction Stove and Electric oven and how it’s worked out.

Installing Lithium Batteries on a Sailboat!!! Part 1- Sailing Vessel Delos

Our Mission- Get rid of propane and move into the 21st century with induction cooking! We install a bank of Lithium batteries, a big ass inverter, and an induction cooktop. This video covers the installation process and what tweaks we made on Delos to get the system working.

Check out https://svdelos.com/lithium for some FAQ and more info on what we installed.

I think I will do a Part 2 that covers the rest of the configuration of the charge controllers, and what we do to replace the old propane oven. Stay Tuned, and thanks so much for all your support that makes these videos possible 🙂

Hope you enjoyed, and learned a little something like I did. For more of these types of videos please give the video a LIKE! Or buy us a beer ha ha 🙂 https://svdelos.com/beer

WATT the hell is an amp hour?
