A power inverter, or inverter, is an
electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current to alternate
The input voltage, output voltage and
frequency, and overall power handling, are dependent on the design of the
specific device or circuitry.
A power inverter can be entirely electronic or may be a
combination of mechanical effects (such as a rotary apparatus) and electronic
circuitry. Static inverters do not use moving parts in the conversion
Typical applications for power inverters include:
- Portable consumer devices that allow the user to
connect a battery, or set of batteries, to the device to produce AC power
to run various electrical items such as lights, televisions, kitchen
appliances, and power tools.
- Use in power generation systems such as electric
utility companies or solar generating systems to convert DC power to AC
- Use within any larger electronic system where an
engineering need exists for deriving an AC source from a DC source.
