A PURE SINE WAVE SINGLE PHASE 2.5KVA INVERTER. THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
1.1 Background of the study
Electricity power system is one of the economic infrastructural facilities that are indispensable to a nation’s economic development. The efficiency of the supply of electricity will not only influence returns on investment on existing enterprises, it also plays a major role in the creation of an economic environment which influences decisions on potential investment.
The electricity which is the main source of power for our domestic consumption, industrial development, centre of learning and medical centres should really be rehabilitated into enhancement of productivity.
However power failure has resulted in people buying generators for their own daily activity. Other businesses are also not functioning due to absence of constant power supply. These are the reasons that necessitate the designing and construction of inverter and other standby system that can deliver maximum output power to the load. As society grows from simple to complex, mankind began to spread all over the earth and so it becomes necessary to enjoy power using an inverter.
Statistics have shown that the number of business that have been closed simply because of power problem cannot be over emphasized, so mankind need inverter seriously in other to restore technology development, businesses, communications, learning centre and medical centres. However, the background of the study lies within the reason why the construction of inverter should be forwarded and factor that enhance inverter marketability.
Recent large prices increase of fossil fuels in addition to the fact that their reserves are of finite existence such that mankind reliance on them is only for a few more decades has led to the research on alternative energy source which would replace fossil fuel (which currently is the bedrock of power generation). Which brings us to the importance of generating power on the sides to compliment the power supply
Finally, the success of this study will be beneficial to the society at large. Mass production of inverters will lead to improve standard of living of the populace and the nation will move forward in its pursuit of technological development. Power inverters are used to convert direct current (DC), such as that from a battery, to alternating current (AC), such as what can be drawn from a standard wall outlet. These devices are used in a large number of applications, including conditioning energy derived from solar cells into usable power and supplying electricity to household appliances during power outages.
