We all remember the terrible news coverage of November 2013. Typhoon Haiyan created thousands of victims and enormous damage. From all that was in the path of the heart of the storm, about 70 to 80% was completely destroyed. Victron Energy took the faith of these people to heart and that is why the company, in December 2013, donated 60 mobile chargers with batteries. All units have been put in use. Read full article
MultiPower Hybrid: blue is the new green!
The life of a typical low power diesel generator is miserable. While sized to handle the highest load that may occur, the average load is often less than 20%.
The result is excessive fuel consumption, elevated exhaust pollutant levels, and soot formation in the cylinders; increasing maintenance and reducing engine life.
The MultiPower Hybrid combines synchronizing inverter/chargers, a generator, a battery and a control system in one container.
Generator use can be minimized with a MultiPower Hybrid. The generator will run only when the batteries need recharging and during periods of peak load, when the combined generator + inverter power is needed.
Whenever the generator is online, it will run at its most efficient load point.
Experience has shown that installation of a MultiPower Hybrid will result in:
Generator run hours can be reduced even further by adding solar and/or wind power to the system.
Two AC inputs with integrated transfer switch. The Quattro can be connected to two independent AC sources, for example shore-side power and a generator, or two generators. The Quattro will automatically connect to the active source.
All Quattro- and several Multi inverter/chargers now have two AC outputs. In addition to the standard no-break output, an auxiliary output is available which disconnects the connected load during battery operation. It is, for example, the perfect solution for preventing an electric water heater from discharging your battery.
