What is inverter
Inverter - a truly multi-valued word. This term denotes some quite similar to each other devices used in various branches of engineering. Some of the inverters you use every day, it is not aware of it.
Historically, the first device, dubbed the inverter gate began performing negation, or inversion. Therefore it is called differently by NOT. If the file is input logic one at the output of zero is obtained, and vice versa. Man, far from the electronics, but is familiar with electrical engineering, remember relay with normally closed contacts. Can we consider it an inverter? Certainly. Modern technologies allow to make this device very tiny. For example, a tiny IC chip placed K561LN2 their entire shest.Danny gate can be used for other purposes. Of the two elements are not, if they are to add a resistor and a capacitor, obtained square-wave generator. It is easy to calculate that on a single chip K561LN2 can build as many as three of the generator. And this is - a chord! And if you place the inverter in a linear mode, the bias will turn analog usilitel.No there are other inverters. The second meaning of the term - a voltage converter. But not all but only such which both the input and output voltage is constant (and, whether it is greater or less than the input). It consists of a transmitter generator and rectifier. The former can be mechanically - or umformerom vibrator or electronic formed on any suitable active element. The second can also be any dvuhvyvodnym nonlinear element, suitable for current, voltage and frequency. Thanks to the work at high frequency in modern inverters, in spite of the higher power, apply a very small-sized transformers. So tiny that because of the great power of concentration at times they have to be cooled by fans. Take a look around. Blocks of computer power, TV, cell phone charger - all inverters. And in order to be able to feed an alternating current, they all are equipped with filters on the input rectifier. A firm Panasonic - is the only one that uses such converters in a microwave oven that allows you to make them less severe. But it will take a little more time on this decision expired patent, and produce such furnaces will all proizvoditeli.A's inverter air conditioners are called as such is not entirely correct. The fact that the transducer used therein, intended for changing the frequency of the motor supply voltage, has a rectifier at the output. This means that the definition of such an inverter converter is not suitable at all. The same applies to devices that produce from the DC side of the vehicle AC, suitable for domestic electrical supply.
