In just a few steps you can calculate your energy deficit or surplus by entering your loads and charge sources. The results will show in the "Running Totals" box as you add values.

Step 1 (Optional). Adjust default voltages and efficiencies by clicking "Defaults" above. The defaults are set for a 12V system with average efficiencies.

Step 2. Begin entering your existing loads and charge sources by clicking "Next" above or skip to any load or source by clicking the corresponding button in the "Running Totals" box.

Do you know your total daily loads?

If so, enter the value here in Wh or Ah.

If not, click "Next" above to enter loads individually.

Input your daily AC loads that run off your inverter such as AirCon, water heater, watermaker, laptop/iPad, etc.

Do not include AC loads that you only run off your generator or shore power.

- Enter the name of the load under "Description".
- Enter either its amp OR watts rating.
- Enter the estimated hours of use each day (if less than an hour, enter this as a fraction - e.g. 15 minutes = 0.25 hours).

Input daily DC loads on primary battery bank such as lights, autopilot, DC fridge, DC watermaker, pumps, etc.

- Enter the name of the load under "Description".
- Enter either its amp OR watts rating.
- Enter the estimated hours of use each day (if less than an hour, enter this as a fraction - e.g. 15 minutes = 0.25 hours).

Input daily DC loads on auxiliary battery bank.

- Enter the name of the load under "Description".
- Enter either its amp OR watts rating.
- Enter the estimated hours of use each day (if less than an hour, enter this as a fraction - e.g. 15 minutes = 0.25 hours).

Input your renewable charge sources such as wind or solar.

Enter their output in watts or amps and estimate how long the source is running during a 24 hour period.

For solar, either enter the total rated output in watts or the total output of the controllers in amps (if you have had the ability to measure that in good sun conditions while in use). In both cases, enter "3" in the hours column.

If you have a water generator, assume no output below 5 knots of sailing speed; between 5 & 10 knots, assume an output equal to the boat speed. For any speed above 10 knots, assume 10A. If yours is a 24V boat, cut the amps number in half.

Input your non-renewable charge sources such as alternator, AC/DC charger (from genset), DC genset, etc.

Enter their output in watts or amps and estimate how long the source is running during a 24 hour period.
