PSpice Lab Series Video 5 - Batteries In Parallel

Maybe you've got an RV or a boat with four or more house batteries used to power an air conditioner, oven, electric grill, etc. Maybe you've got a cabin off the grid and are harvesting solar energy to charge a battery bank. Ever wonder what those batteries are doing and how they are hooked up?

In this video I use PSpice to demonstrate how multiple batteries are connected in parallel in a power inverter, solar hybrid inverter or UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to increase capacity and run your ac, oven, etc longer on a full charge.

For more PSpice laboratory simulations, visit my YouTube PSpice Playlist.

Want to learn more? I’ll be teaching a Systems 1 course online in the fall and a Systems 2 course in the spring at Holyoke Community College. If you are anywhere in the world and interested in taking an online course with me drop an email to Both courses will transfer to most university electrical engineering programs in the United States. 

Hope to see you there!!
