Engine Room Scale Layout
With circuit diagrams and electrical equipment selection coming together, I can start on the scale layout of how all of this stuff will fit and be placed in the engine room. The drawing in the picture is a scale drawing of the surfaces available for mounting equipment. The center region is what you would see if you were sitting in the engine room facing the port side. Surrounding it are the left, right, overhead and below counter surfaces. Layed out are scale images of battery chargers, transformers inverters, panels, etc. The pictures shows things as if everything were "kitted out" in Phase III.
The purpose of this exercise is to help determine wire routes and ensure there is enough physical space.
