Planning for a Battery Backup System for Home Power
Background: Mike, a Homeowner from far far away (I just checked where you are from, and your right, that is far far away, good grief, but i’ll bet it’s very nice!)
Question: I just moved in a location in a corner of the globe that grid power is an extreme luxury.
I need some information about how to setup a battery backup inverter system and connect it to the main switch.
I need to support 3 light bulbs, a TV, a satellite receiver and a refrigerator.
The calculated operating amperage for the refrigerator is 4.5 .Â I do not know about the initial booting amps.
Thanks for your electrical question mike.
Mike, much more information is needed to plan this out. I installed a system like this on a very remote island in the Philippines a few years ago, there was no electricity at all so we set up solar panels with provision for a backup generator. I know that some of the technology has changed, but that does not change the fact that the voltage and watts or amp loads for the devices will be needed. I know that in your area of the world it is common to have 220 volt devices so that would need to be verified.
The Following links will assist you with your electrical question:

Wiring 220 Volt Electrical Outlet
Home electrical wiring includes 110 volt outlets and 220 volt outlets and receptacles which are common place in every home. See how wiring electrical outlets for the home are done.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
