In order to change direct current (or DC) to alternating current (or AC), you will need a power electronic circuity or device, that may be entirely electronic or uses a combination of mechanical effects such as a rotary. The design of the specific device will determine the output voltage, input voltage and frequency. DC to AC converters are mainly deployed in electrical power applications whenever high currents and voltage are present.

How do you determine the start up wattages of your electronics, and figuring out what size power inverters will run different types of devices? If you are unfamiliar with power inverter technology, this is a basic technology that allows you to use DC current from a car, truck, boat or even a standalone battery and convert it to standard 120 volt AC current. This will allow you to run your standard household electronics off a battery sourced. DC to AC power inverters are available a large variety of different sizes; You can find the smallest at 50 watts and largest at 6,000 watts. With 6,000 watts of power, you’ll be able to power 50 amps worth of devices, which means you’ll be able to power pretty much any type of standard household electronics.
First thing you want to do when determining which size power inverter you’ll require for your system, is to take a look at all the electronics you want to power with the DC to AC power inverter and check the power rating label found on each device, then add up the wattage and amperage displayed on those devices.
If you’re uncertain of the startup wattage of a specific device, it’s always a good idea to contact one of our service professionals at Geoman Electrical DNY to assist you further
