What is a power inverter for?

power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The input voltage, output voltage and frequency, and overall power handling depend on the design of the specific device or circuitry.

In basic terms, a power inverter is a piece of equipment that can covert a low voltage Direct Current, better known as DC, to standard Alternating Current (AC) power. This conversion of power allows power inverters to operate electrical equipment by plugging directly into a car, truck or boat battery often through a cigarette lighter receptacle or 12V adapter. Power inverters are often lifesavers when it comes to keeping the energy flowing during emergencies, so you can keep using a phone, medical equipment or even a laptop.

The inverter draws its power from a 12 Volt battery (preferably deep-cycle), or several batteries wired in parallel. The battery will need to be recharged as the power is drawn out of it by the inverter. The battery can be recharged by running the automobile motor, or a gas generator, solar panels, or wind. Or you can use a battery charger plugged into an AC outlet to recharge the battery.

A new study shows that wind, water and solar generators can theoretically result in a reliable, affordable national grid when the generators are combined with inexpensive storage. Over the last few years, Mark Jacobson, a Stanford professor of civil and environmental engineering, and his colleague, Mark Delucchi of the University of California, Berkeley, have produced […]

A photovoltaic (PV)  junction box is an important part of the solar panels. The junction box is an enclosure on the module where the PV strings are electrically connected. The majority of junction box manufacturers are nowadays based in China. How is the junction box connected to the solar panel? A PV junction box is attached to […]

A grid-tied electrical system, also called tied to grid or grid tie system, is a semi-autonomous electrical generation or grid energy storage system which links to the mains to feed excess capacity back to the local mains electrical grid. When insufficient electricity is available, electricity drawn from the mains grid can make up the shortfall. […]

Grid-tied, on-grid, utility-interactive, grid intertie and grid backfeeding are all terms used to describe the same concept – a solar system that is connected to the utility power grid.

If you’re looking for a promising career, and care about the environment, consider being a solar panel installer. As CNBC reports, the economy is projected to swell by 11.5 million jobs over the next decade—and a significant portion of this growth will come from the workers who assemble, install, and maintain solar panel systems on roofs […]

We know that solar energy is definitely a good thing, but very few of us are aware of its benefits. Thereby, this blog post is all about some benefits of solar inverter. Why is this inverter considered as the most reliable home inverter? To get the answer, just read on: Eco-friendly and reasonable: Solar energy is the cleanest […]
