Starting to research setting up my own solar energy system and I'm looking at appliances. Clearly it pays to stay mostly in 12v instead of inverting to 120vac. Mainly I've been wondering about converting a fan (or other 120vac motor to DC) Theoretically, this should be doable since most motorized AC appliances don't have true AC motors, but DC motors connected to a rectifier. However, the rectifier puts out 120vdc. So I should be able to strip out the rectifier and run it on straight DC, IF I can bump the DC voltage from 12vdc to 120vdc. Is this possible? Is there even a device to do this? Anyone know? Thanks in advance.
