I would like to run a 120 VAC compact refrigerator from a modified sine wave inverter. The fridge requires 10 amps to start, but less than 1.5 A to run. I would like to use a 400 W inverter and place a capacitor in series for the compressor start. Is this feasible and what type/size capacitor would I need to provide 10A VAC for 3 seconds.
Thanks in advance.
