I have an idea rather still a questiom in my mind to make such a power setup at home to run a 1.5 Ton AC with low power consumption.

Basically, if I run a 1.5 Ton AC on 220V it takes 4-6 Amperes in running position while starting at 8-10 Amperes so it makes high electricity cost.
I was watching a video on youtube about a 20KVA 380v step up transformer with 220v supply. I posted a question there that how much load will be taken from 220v outlet if a 1.5 Ton AC is run on this 20KVA transformer. i.e., will it make any difference in power consumption as compared to the power consumption when directly run on 220v outlet?
Another.video showed running an AC on 6000w inverter connected to a 150AH battery. Could this battery be replaced with a 12v 150A Dc supply?

Internet is full of bulls***t videos.
Trick is to have enough experience /sense to know what is what.
In this instance, yes, crap.

There is nothing you can do with transformers or an inverter that will reduce the power consumption of the AC unit, as they just convert electrical energy from one form to another.
All those techniques have an efficiency of less than 100%, so they will actually increase the energy required to operate the AC.

The only way to reduce the AC energy consumption is to buy a more efficient AC unit.
