Down-to-Earth Theory: The Full Wave Inverter

Sept. 26, 2017
The inversion process is the procedure for changing DC voltage into AC voltage

The basic theory column has covered rectification of an AC sine-wave, so now it is time to look at the inversion process. That is the procedure for changing DC voltage into AC voltage, which is performed by a full wave inverter. An inverter can produce a many different waveforms, but we are only interested in the sine-wave. The device can produce output voltage and frequencies are controlled by the inversion process. Typically, the output voltage is connected to a transformer matching system it is feeding power into.

This month’s Transpower New Zealand explains how process takes place and builds on the previous material.
