Inverters and Batteries: Mutually Beneficial

In a resource competitive world, things like electricity play a major role in how productive and advanced a country is. India has a population of over 1.2 billion people, and a majority of them do not have access to electricity. This is only worsened by the fact that only about 21% of the total population gets access to electricity.

Despite these numbers, India happens to be the world’s third-largest producer of electricity and the fourth largest consumer of electricity. For a developing country whose needs and demand far outweighs the supply, appliances like batteries and inverters play an important role. These two work in tandem to power up areas which are generally known to receive very little to no amounts of electricity. Most of these places are rural areas and the hard to reach regions of the Northeast, Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan.

Inverters are devices that convert DC to AC, 99% of all the common household appliances use alternating current and not direct current. It is designed this way as AC is easier to carry over large distances as compared to DC. In case of a power outage or a lack of power supply, an inverter comes really handy. The input voltage, output voltage and frequency along with overall power all depend on the design of the circuit.

Inverters can be entirely electronic or a combination of mechanical arms (rotary apparatus) and electric circuitry. Static inverters do not use moving parts. There are various types of inverters that can output different voltages depending on circuitry. All the different types of inverters do require one common thing, which is a stable DC power source.  The output waveform from an inverter can be of many types such as sine wave, modified sine wave and square wave inverters. The most common one is a square wave, it is used in most households and one can readily buy online high capacity inverter in India.

The runtime of an inverter is entirely dependent on the battery’s power and the power being drawn from the battery at a given time. The power supply depends on the amount of equipment that is using the inverter; the more the equipment, the lesser the runtime. To prolong the life of an inverter, one has to connect multiple batteries to the inverter.

When trying to connect multiple batteries, there are two methods for installation which can be followed; the series and the parallel configuration. In the series configuration, the goal is to increase the overall power of the inverter. One can daisy chain the batteries. However, if one battery fails to operate, the whole series dies. In a parallel configuration, the goal is to increase capacity and prolong the runtime of the inverter, batteries are connected in parallel. This increases the overall ampere-hour of the battery set. In this configuration, even if one is discharged, the others will continue to function.

To have a longer inverter runtime, one can choose from these configurations and order a luminous high capacity inverter online at the click of a button.
