Which AC appliances will run on DC? Answered
I am planning on constructing a completely self sufficient home, with the energy created in DC using a water wheel, windmill, and/or generator. I wanted to stay away from inverters (unless REALLY needed), and wonder if i can make dc plug sockets and plug the AC appliances into the DC (building rules and regs wouldnt apply) . They would mainly be simple kitchen appliances eg mixers, and a lot of tools. They would be run from a bank of 12v batteries. i would also use DC lights in the house.
i thought this may be possible from this instructables- https://www.instructables.com/id/Run-AC-Tools-on-Batteries-Directly,-without-an-Inv/
any help would be GREATLY appreciated!?
