Inverters are now widely used in every household and commercial complexes for its advantageous feature, giving uninterrupted power supply, in case of frequent power cut. This has given a boom to many new inverter brands and companies to produce various types of inverters for different purposes. This has made the task challenging to find the right choice of inverter for residential or commercial needs. There are many components to be considered while choosing an inverter such as to select tubular batteries of flat batteries, 800VA or 1000VA, half load or full load and many more details. Besides these considerations, the availability of multiple solutions for power back up makes the selection tougher.
Here is a guide to choosing the right inverter according to specific needs:
Output: If the utility power produces “Sine Wave”, then it is important to choose the inverter that produces same wave, which is very important to get long term positive effects on home appliances
Battery Size: Inverter batteries are available in different sizes such as, 3KVa, 5.5KVa, 600VA, 800 VA and 1400VA. This is determined on what type of home appliances you have. While choosing the size, it is important to know the wattage requirement for running equipment. If the equipment has only AMPS detail, then watts can be calculated using a simple formula: 230 volts X AMPS = Watts. 12V battery is commonly used for home inverter
Inverter Capacity: Before choosing an inverter, it is important to first understand what capacity is required for your requirements, which means power consumed by different electrical/electronic equipments. Try to calculate the power needed using the given formula. Calculate inverter’s capacity and battery required
Inverter Type: Inverters of three major types of available such as, Pure Sine Wave, Quasi Sine Wave and Square Wave. However, Sine Wave will be the correct Wave form, on which electronic equipments such as computers, TV are designed to function
Backup Time: This is an other major consideration, which can be calculated using:
Ah x 12V x PF x 0.9 / Loach VA Hours. Where, Ah = Ampere-hour capacity of battery, PF = Power Factor of inverter, Load = Sum of VA ratings of elelctrical load that is connected to inverter
For anyone looking for the quick selection of inverter, the 800VA Sine wave inverter with 130 Ah Tubular batteries will be the best choices as it gives maximum backup for up to 3 hours at 600 Watts.
