Differentialities Between the Inverter Technology as well as Power Inverter



It’s been some time that have passed since the inverter Air Conditioners (and fridges) were introduced to India. At first, the public was skeptical of this new technology however, in recent times, people are now embracing it. There is no doubt that this is because Inverter Technology air Conditioners help save huge amounts of energy. However, there’s one huge misunderstanding (or it could be an untruth) that has been circulating among people: that air conditioners equipped with Inverter Technology have power backup similar to an inverter that powers. For a long time, we’ve been taught that inverters are required to provide power backup. This is why the advent of the Inverter Technology has only added an element of confusion. What does the reality tell us?

What is an inverter?

Technical (Electrical Engineering) terms In terms of electrical engineering, an inverter is an electrical device which converts Direct Current (or DC in short) to Alternating Current (or AC).

The reason why it is important?

The electricity we use from the grid of electricity is AC (also known as Alternating Current). Our forefathers long ago decided that it was more secure to distribute electricity in AC rather than Direct Current (or Direct Current). Because all distribution was done in Alternating Current appliances we use in our home (like refrigerators, air conditioners as well as fans,) all operate using Alternating Current.

However, in the event of an electrical failure (or the electricity is not distributed through the grid) then we require an emergency power source (or storage) which can allow us to operate the appliances. Humans invented the concept of a battery. The battery is able to store electricity and is utilized at any time we require it. But there’s a problem: a battery can only hold DC or Direct Current. However, all of our appliances utilize AC (or Alternating Current).

That’s why we need an inverter (or an appliance which converts DC into AC) to be placed between the appliance and the battery.

In the end, inverter will not store electricity. Rather, batteries store electricity. Inverter simply converts DC to AC.

How do you define Inverter Technology?

All the confusion about Inverter Technology is due to the fact that it’s called Inverter Technology. Another term to refer it to is Variable Frequency Drive (or VFD in short). The incoming alternating power that is available in India is at 50 Hz. Scientists have developed an adjustable frequency motor that can alter its speed when its frequency for the alternating current changes. In order to achieve this variable-frequency rectifier, a rectifier is employed to transform the incoming alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC) and then pulse-width modulation within the form of an electronic inverter to create AC with a particular frequency. This leads to improved efficiency as well as savings in electricity.

What is a solar inverter? will the Inverter Technology Air Conditioner be operated by solar?

This is yet another issue that can confuse consumers often. The Solar Inverter works similar to a power inverter as explained in the previous article. It is only different that it charges the batteries with solar power instead of grid power. In a conventional inverter the battery is charged with grid-connected power. The rest of the functions of a solar inverter is similar to power inverters that are used in regular. It draws DC from the battery and converts it into AC for use by the device.

An inverter Technology air conditioners operate with alternating Current (or AC), and a solar inverter can offer AC (by the conversion of DC generated by batteries into AC). So inverter Technology air conditioner (or refrigerator) does not require a the solar inverter. In fact, if are looking to get the most eco-friendly air conditioner (that is powered by renewable energy, does not use electricity , and is also the least expensive to set up) the most efficient option is to install an inverter Technology Air Conditioner that has the Solar PV unit.


Inverter Technology is now accessible for use in Air Conditioners, Refrigerators, Washing Machines and Ceiling Fans. It’s distinct than Power Inverters and does not provide any power backup. One should not think that they will function in power outages.
