Joe, What figure are you using to convert from Watts to Horsepower? I used 746W/HP
and I came up w/a figure of 1119A per motor at full power. That's assuming that all 125 cells are on line in series supplying the motors with 250V.

With these numbers, one would assume that you could run AK Voraus for almost 10 hours, but you can't draw the batteries down to nothing, and you've also got lights, pumps and other gear to power as well, right?
