An inverter generator is a type of portable generator that produces AC (Alternating Current) power, like a conventional generator, but converts it into DC (Direct Current) and back into a cleaner and more stable AC power using clever electronic circuitry.
This makes the output of an inverter generator more stable and reliable than a conventional generator, with less distortion (variability in the power supply), less voltage fluctuations, and noise.
Distortion: When a generator produces AC (Alternating Current) power, the voltage and current produced should ideally be perfect sine waves, with a smooth and uniform pattern over time.
Distortion means deviation in these output power waves from the ideal waveforms.
Distortion can mean voltage spikes or dips, frequency fluctuations. All of which can lead to less-than-perfect power supply.
Alternating current (AC) is a type of electrical current that continually reverses its direction (back and forth), at regular intervals.
AC power is used for most electrical applications, including lighting, motors, appliances, and electronic devices.
It’s the type of power generated by power stations and distributed to our homes, businesses through the power grid.
Direct current (DC): unlike Alternating Current, Direct Current does not continually change direction, but flows in one direction only.
It’s used in many small electronic devices such as phones and computers and household electronics.
But it can’t easily be transmitted via power lines over long distances, which is why it’s not used in the national grid.
Inverter generators are designed to be more efficient and quieter than conventional generators, making them ideal for recreational activities, camping, festivals and other outdoor events.
They are also suitable for backup power for homes and small businesses, as they can run sensitive electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, and medical equipment.
As more people are concerned with energy blackouts inverter generators are becoming increasingly in-demand devices for homes.
Inverter generators use fuel-efficient engines and have lower emissions compared to conventional generators, making them more environmentally friendly.
Inverter generators can be a good choice for homes as backup power sources or for use in areas of the UK which don’t have reliable access to the national power grid. They are also increasingly in-demand in areas which suffer from power cuts and electricity blackouts.
Inverter generators are generally quieter, more efficient, and produce cleaner power than traditional generators, making them well-suited for residential applications such as powering smartphones, medical equipment and computers.
Another popular use of inverter generators is the great British get-away: camping and caravanning.
As inverters are generally lightweight, portable, and produce quieter and cleaner power compared to traditional generators, they can be the ideal solution for portable power.
They’re great for powering small appliances and electronics such as lights, fans, laptops, and portable speakers, making them a convenient source of electricity for trips within the UK or abroad.
They’re also popular amongst the boating community for use on barges and riverboats.
Keeping the power flowing is essential for all small businesses. Inverter generators can be used as backup power sources during power outages or provide the portable power that many on-premises services businesses need as they visit their clients in remote locations.
They’re ideal for powering essential appliances such as light industrial machinery, recharging power tools, powering computers and laptops, charging phones and other communications devices.
Inverter generators produce a stable and clean output waveform, making them ideal for powering sensitive electronic devices and appliances without causing damage or interference.
They are designed from the ground up to be extremely fuel-efficient. They take advantage of advanced electronic circuitry to adjust the engine speed to match the power demand. This reduces fuel consumption and extends the runtime of the generator.
In a noise-sensitive world, inverters are generally quieter than conventional generators, making them ideal for use in residential areas, camping trips, and outdoor events.
They are typically lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport and store. This makes them a popular choice for camping trips and other outdoor activities.
Inverters produce lower emissions and consume less fuel compared to conventional generators, making them a more environmentally friendly choice.
