Inverter and Converter: The unsung hero behind energy transfer.
What is a converter?
A converter is a device that converts electrical energy from one form to another, either DC to DC, DC to AC or AC to AC.
A converter works by converting and regulating the input electrical energy through the control and switching operation of electronic components. There are many types of converters, including boost converters, buck converters, and lift converters.
What is an inverter?
An inverter is a device that converts DC power into AC power. It is typically used to convert the output of a DC power source (e.g., battery, solar panel, etc.) into electrical energy that can be used by an AC-powered device.
The input of an inverter receives a DC voltage and converts it into a high frequency pulse signal through internal electronic components, which is then filtered and adjusted appropriately to produce an AC output with the desired frequency and amplitude.
What is the difference between a converter and an inverter?
Typically, an inverter uses an AC power source as an input to produce a specific output voltage, while a converter usually uses a DC power source as an input to produce a specific output voltage.
In addition, the output voltage of an inverter is usually adjustable and its principle of operation is based on converting DC power to high voltage AC power through high frequency oscillation. In contrast, the output voltage of a converter can be constant, and the magnitude and type of output voltage depends on the design and purpose of the inverter.
What are the application scenarios for converters and inverters?
Inverters are widely used in portable electronic devices, solar power systems, wind power systems and other scenarios that require AC power, such as factories, homes and camping.
Converters are used in electronic devices, power supply systems and industrial controls for power conversion, signal transmission and data monitoring of electronic devices.
