What are Inverters?

An Inverter is a device that is used when we don’t have access to direct current. It generates alternative current that replaces the direct source of current.

Types Of Inverters

Power Inverters:

In case of a power inverter, the inverter does not generate any current but it comes from the direct source. The frequency, the overall power handling and the voltage differ from from appliance to another. These inverters can tend to be completely electronic or can be a combination of mechanical effect and chemical circuitry. The output waveform of this includes that the inverter can produce different kinds of waves. An inverter can produce a square wave, modified sine wave, pulsed sine wave, pulse width modulated wave or sine wave depending on circuit design of the inverter and its model.

Common types of inverters produce square waves or quasi-square waves which are among the various types of waves produced. One measure of the purity of a sine wave is the(THD) which are the total distortions produced. A 50% duty cycle square wave is equivalent to a sine wave with a medium percentage of THD [3] Technical standards for commercial power distribution grids require less than three percent of THD in the wave shape at the customer's point of connection.

Standards recommends less than 5% THD for systems connecting to a power grid. The best suited for low intensity application is the square wave which is one of the simplest designs an inverter can produce by itself. A multiple step waveform is created by a sine wave. Whereas a power inverter substitutes for standard line power, a sine wave output is important because many electrical products are engineered to work best with a sine wave AC power source. The standard electric utility provides a sine wave, typically with minor imperfections but sometimes with significant distortion but still is widely used in electronic appliances.

Solar Inverters

It converts a direct current source to an alternative source of power. There are further types of solar inverters which are as follows:

Stand Alone Inverters :

Are a type of solar inverters that are used in isolated systems where the inverter draws its DC energy from batteries charged by a kind of array which is photovoltaic in nature. Many stand-alone inverters also incorporate integral chargers primarily battery chargers to replenish the battery from an AC source, when available. Normally these do not interface in any way with the utility grid, and do not need to have anti-islanding protection.

Grid tie Inverters :

Are a type of solar inverters which match the phase with a utility-supplied sine wave. Grid-tie inverters shut down automatically upon loss of utility supply and that workd wonders for safety reasons. They do not provide backup power during utility outages.

Battery backup inverters :

Are a type of solar inverter that are special inverters which are designed to draw energy from a battery, manage the battery charge via an onboard charger, and export excess energy to the utility grid. These inverters can also supply AC energy to selected loads during an outage, and are required to have anti-islanding protection.

Hybrid Inverters :

Are those that manage photovoltaic array, battery storage and utility grid, which are all coupled directly to the unit. These modern all-in-one systems are usually highly versatile and can be used for grid-tie, stand-alone or backup applications but their primary function is self-consumption with the use of storage.

Solar Micro Inverters :

These inverters are a version of solar inverters that work on a single model of PV. There are various advantages to using a micro inverter that include single panel power optimisation and the independent operation of each panel. Plug-and play installation, improved installation and fire safety, minimized costs with system design and stock minimization are the few other advantages of using these solar inverters as compared to using regular inverters.

Top Brands that sell Inverters

APC Home and one of the popular models being ‘UPS 850VA Sine Wave BI850SINE'

This inverter is light and compact and is known to be the best for Indian household power conditions wherein the fluctuation of power happens on a pretty often scale. It is manufactured by Schneider. The maximum power output capability of this is 500 watts.

Microtek and one of the popular inverter being ‘Static Converter UPS SEBz 1100 V2 Sinewave Technology’

Microtek is very well known for the manufacturing of consumer appliances such as inverters. They are a Taiwan based group and have gained immense recognition in the Indian market for their products.


Luminous is a brand that is very well known in the Indian market for manufacturing and is one of the top when it comes to inverters as well. The inverters come both with a attached battery or in some cases we need to purchase one seperately. It has a neat looking LED display to it which indicates the amount of remaining power in the inverter. The inverters by luminous are a little higher in terms of price as compared by other companies but it serves the purpose. Once you purchase it, you wont regret your decision. It has a very popular model called ‘Zelio 1700 Sine Wave UPS’.


Exide again is a very well known brand. It has a strong consumer base since it has been in the market for quite some time now. This inverter is fitted with a microspeed processor and a processor that is Digital in nature. It has a very popular model called ‘Exide 850VA Pure Sinewave Home UPS Inverter’ which currently has good reviews and sales in the Indian market. It has a pretty long battery life and can be trusted when it comes to long hours of power cut.
