Re: Doomed from the start
I think that's key, we're talking about just the DC/AC converter. Given the constraints it makes sense that it is the only thing being considered, wire in @ 2kVA - DC/AC converter - wire out @ 2kVA * .95+, that's it. They aren't interested in loads, breakers, switches etc. and it's likely they want to put it in something to make a complete package which may explain why liquid cooling is out. At least that's the way I read it since we're talking about a 1" thick box that's 6 5/16" square.
