Inverter or home UPS is an electrical appliances which converts D.C. (Direct Current) to (alternating current) so that you get uninterrupted power in your home in case of frequent power failures.
How it works
An Inverter requires external lead acid battery to store power. When there is electricity available, it charges the battery, when power fails, It supplies electricity from the battery. That’s how you get 24*7 uninterrupted power from inverter in your home and office.
How to Select Inverter for Home?
If you are planning to buy Inverter for home use for the very first time, it is important for you to choose the electrical appliances that you wish to run when there is power failures. Selection of inverter depends upon consumption of power and backup time when electricity is not available. You should consider consumption of power for these electrical appliances
Types of Inverter
As far as the technology is concerned, there are two types of Inverter:
Pure Sine Wave
Pure Sine wave Inverter is the latest technology product and a square wave is the baseline product. A pure sine wave inverter does not create humming noise from fans and it will not let sensitive appliances heat up such as a laptop adapter. Pure Sine wave UPS is considered to be the best quality UPS.
Backup time of an inverter depends on the number of batteries an inverter supports. Inverters are rated in VA (Volt Ampere). 12 V inverter supports single battery as all lead acid batteries are usually 12V design. Similarly, 36 V inverter system requires 3 numbers of battery to be connected in series.
Number of batteries required
1 – Battery
2 – Battery
3 – Battery
4 – Battery
8 – Battery
If an inverter system is connected with 150 Ah lead acid battery, the backup time will be around 3:00 hours if power consumption is 400 watts.
Inverters and Home UPS Price
Price of Inverters depends upon Inverter Capacity (VA rating) and technology type. Luminous Inverter price starts from ₹ 3550 and goes up to ₹ 72500. When an Inverter Capacity (VA) is Higher than the cost of inverter will be Higher, Similarly, If it is a pure sine wave inverter which is indication of latest technology inverters, the prices will be higher compared to square wave inverters.
