Introduction and Application of the Split Phase Inverter

The split-phase inverter is a power transformer that can convert Direct Current (DC) to three-phase Alternating Current (AC). It is primarily used in industrial production scenarios, such as motor drives, welding machines, and other equipment.

The operational principle of the split-phase inverter involves processing DC power through components such as thyristors, converting it into high-frequency pulses, then smoothing it through circuits like filters, finally yielding stable three-phase AC.

Compared to traditional converters, the split-phase inverter presents distinct advantages such as small volume, high efficiency, and strong reliability, and thus it has been extensively promoted and applied in the industrial context.

The use occasion of the single-phase inverter

Single-phase devices are often used in scenarios that require higher power demand.

  1. Home power systems: Here, the Split Phase Inverter regularly pairs with solar photovoltaic systems changing DC into AC for home device use.
  2. Commercial power systems: Larger commercial facilities use Split Phase Inverters to convert DC sources into AC for commercial use.
  3. Vehicle and RV power supplies: Electric vehicles or recreational vehicles frequently use these devices for converting battery-provided DC into AC for electric device usage.

The classification and uses of phase inverters

Single-Phase Inverter:

  • Operational principle: A Single-Phase Inverter commonly utilizes a DC link to provide power, typically derived from solar panels or batteries. It uses switching technologies, like MOSFET, IGBT, etc., to adjust the voltage of the DC link, in turn producing an Alternating Current (AC) output.

Through speedy switching of four stages, the inverter can generate an AC output resembling a sine wave.

  • Applicable place: Single-phase inverters are the most common types and are frequently used in homes and other small facilities. They convert DC sources into single-phase AC power, mainly used for small electricity requirements, such as household electricity, fans, refrigerators, etc.

Multi-Phase Inverter:

  • Operational principle: Multi-phase inverters are more complex. However, their fundamental principle is similar to that of single-phase and three-phase inverters; it just includes more switches for generating more phases. Each switch pair corresponds to one phase, each phase equally staggered from other phases.

    Applicable place: Multiphase inverters are not common in daily life but are utilized in specific applications like airplanes, electric cars, and certain special power needs where multi-phase power is required.

Three-Phase Inverter:

  • Operational principle: A Three-Phase Inverter operates principally like a single-phase inverter with the primary difference being the use of three pairs of switches instead of one. These three pairs of switches are offset by 120 degrees from each other, generating three AC outputs staggered by 120 degrees.
  • Applicable place: Three-Phase Inverters cater to larger capacity loads, like industrial power applications. This inverter type can generate three-phase AC power, thus able to supply high-power devices. In an industrial setting, motors, electric generators, and machinery utilize this equipment.

Multi-Phase Inverter:

  • Operational principle: Multi-phase inverters are more complex. However, their fundamental principle is similar to that of single-phase and three-phase inverters; it just includes more switches for generating more phases. Each switch pair corresponds to one phase, each phase equally staggered from other phases.

    Applicable place: Multiphase inverters are not common in daily life but are utilized in specific applications like airplanes, electric cars, and certain special power needs where multi-phase power is required.

These inverters contain switches in the circuit driven differently to acquire AC voltage at the load end.

Simply put, single-phase inverters generate single-phase AC output, three-phase inverters generate three-phase AC output, and multi-phase inverters produce multi-phase AC output.

rechargeable inverter Introduction and applicable place

Rechargeable inverters are a type of chargable inverter device, mainly used to convert Direct Current (DC) into Alternating Current (AC).

This device is usually equipped with a charger and can be charged from the mains (or renewable energy sources such as solar panels). Its main advantages are easy to carry and use, and it can provide electricity without fuel, and it can usually be directly plugged into a standard power socket. This can provide a steady and stable power supply anytime and anywhere.

The following are some common application scenarios:

  •        Residential applications: Many households use solar-powered inverter systems as a primary or backup power source. This is very useful especially in areas where power outages are frequent. It can instantaneously cut off the grid, preventing household appliances from being damaged by sudden power outages.
  •        Commercial and industrial applications: In many commercial and industrial environments, a continuous power supply is crucial. For example, medical facilities, data centers, factories, and other areas all use rechargeable inverters as a stable power source to avoid serious losses and interruptions.
  •        Portable and outdoor applications: The rechargeable inverter can also be used for camping, field investigations, etc., providing us with portable power sources.
  •        Emergency systems: After natural disasters or sudden events, rechargeable inverters can serve as emergency energy sources, ensuring the operation of important equipment, such as medical devices, communication equipment, etc.
  •        Electric vehicles: Many electric cars also use rechargeable inverters. Their use maximizes the utilization of electrical energy while also improving the endurance of electric vehicles.
