A Power inverter converts the DC electricity from batteries, solar, or fuel cells to AC electricity. The electricity can be at any required voltage; in particular, it can operate AC equipment designed for mains operation or rectified to produce DC at any desired voltage.
Power failure and emergency breakdown may happen any time due to short circuits, damage to electric transmission lines, substations or other parts of the distribution system, storms and other bad weather conditions, etc. In this case, an emergency generator or battery backup can be used to restore the electric power to the home and other connected appliances. In some cases, it is very important to restore the power as soon as possible like in Hospital ICU, military, intelligence and security systems & offices, etc. This is where we use the generator and Inverter / UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) system with the help of backup batteries and inverter.
There is only one thing that is Battery is available by which we can store electrical energy for use during load shedding. But we know that battery is a DC source. In our home, all electrical equipment is made for a 230V AC supply. So we need 230V AC supply to run our electrical equipment during load shedding. The inverter in our house is a device that takes 12V DC supply and gives 230V AC Supply. So Inverter is a circuit, or you can call a device that converts DC to AC.
Basically, they are devices that turn your vehicle battery’s direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) – the kind of electricity you have in outlets in your house that is connected to the energy grid.
Having a power Inverter means you can plug in your appliances and devices and power them as you would through an electrical outlet in a house.
In your car, you can get USB adaptors for your cigarette lighter so that you can charge your phone or plug in your satnav. But for larger gadgets and electronics with proper plugs, you’ll need a Power inverter.
