What Inverter is, How Inverters Work and How to Choose a Good Inverter Brand

Inverters essentially are electrical appliances that primarily convert DC voltage to AC voltage usable on your electric appliances.They are usually installed such that they automatically provide backup power suppply in the event of power outage,virtually without any noticeable break in performance of these

Some of our inverter and battery brands include: Bluegate,Gaoxinqi, Genus, Luminous, Mercury, Numeric, Su-Kam, Zenith, others.

You can determine what size of inverter system and backup time you get by inputting the necessary values in the form below. To reduce your inverter installation cost, it's important you decide to use only energy saving devices such as an energy saving bulb,LCD or LED TV, and run only a few very important appliances during power outage.This way,your total energy required to be suppplied by the inverter system is drastically reduced,thus reducing your installation cost. You will see rated power of an appliance usually on the back in watts or just 'W'.
We can help you with a load survey and analysis of your premises.However,you may wish to do it yourself following the steps below.

Inverter Sizing Calculator:
Step1: Sum all the power consumption of your appliances in Watts (Total Load)
Step2: Enter the efficiciency of your inverter and the depth of discharge of battery bank before inverter automatic alarm and eventual shut down. Value for both is usually about 80%.
Note that the actual back-up time may vary depending on power consumption of the load connected,battery type and age of the batteries.Interestingly,actual back-up time have been found in most cases to exceed the values obtained here by more than 1 hour on the average.

A power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current
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 process.
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 power.
  • Use within any larger electronic system where an engineering need exists for deriving an AC source from a DC source.
