I am currently programming a microcontroller to handle the startup and shutdown procedures of my inverter. Hit start and it will auto pre-charge and so on. This will also handle temperature/fan control and over-current/under-voltage shutdown. I am just not sure what set points I should set. How hot should I expect the heatsink to get with a full 5Kw load and at what point should the fans kick in? I was also going to measure the temperature of the big transformer which I assume would take a really long time to heat up with that amount of copper, again what would be too hot?

Something I haven't wired in yet are an AC line filters. Should I and have others recycled the ones from the Aerosharps?
