This is the code to use the AC controller as an inverter - like the ones that you get to run tools from 12V batteries, or from your diesel work truck.

This one will work at whatever voltage you use on your pack. If you use about 150V, paul says it will do a pretty good job of 120VAC. Paul said that it worked to do 240VAC .. but I have not seen that as yet.

I'd expect to use 300VDC bus for 240VAC output, but that's just what I've seen on other inverters.

I was going to try to run a sump pump on 120V output from a 48V pack on my carryall. If it pumps - great! It may need a boost stage to bring the pack voltage up to 120 - 150 VDC to operate properly .. not sure.
