Question
Dear ZZ

Is it possible to design and construct a exhaust fan with batteries?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes, of course. But it may not be a wise thing to do.

The fan motor would need to be a DC motor or if an AC motor a DC to AC converter would be needed.

Since the fan needs quite high input power the battery would need to be very large and expensive in cost. Therefore the use of battery power would not be a practical solution.

OK?
