How Inverters Work  

... batteries presented a problem in the past when people realized they needed to operate traditionally AC-powered devices in their homes, offices and so on but could not do so because of incompatible current requirements.  Manufacturers like Vector stepped up to solve this dilemma by working to design power inverters that would safely and efficiently convert DC to AC.  Their successful engineering has resulted in a wide range of compact, rectangular devices that connect to batteries and output the resulting alternating current safely through one or more standard electrical plugs.

Two factors determine how a  power inverter works: wave output and wattage output.  Wave output describes the physical appearance of electrical signals as they move across an oscilloscope.  Square waves appear exactly as their name specifies: like squares on a grid.  Pure sine waves, also called true sine waves, appear as visible waves on the screen.

Sine wave power inverters work better than square wave power inverters when uninterrupted power flow is a critical issue.  In fact, true sine output is sometimes slightly superior to that of public utility power grids!  Because of this, they are also the most expensive devices of their kind on the market.

Recent advances in technology have accommodated users on a budget with a hybrid design generally referred to as either a modified square or modified sine wave power inverter.  The technical differences that determine how a true sine car power inverter works and how a modified sine power inverter works are too minor to produce any notice.
