Hi Bryan, I don't get why you want to use welding cable. That seems very excessive for what you are doing.
From what I read in your posts you are sending AC from the generator shed to the other shed. Then charging batteries with that.
So there must be an inverter at the shed where the batteries are.
My thoughts are that you would be better off adding a capacitor bank in parallel with the shed batteries to help with starting current.
Maybe I am not understanding your setup.
The price of welding cable, even if you could get it in 100 metre lengths would be astronomical.
Also why three cables. is your converted motor 3 phase?
