Inverter circuit, 12V to 220V at 500W

This is inverter circuit 500W output. It will convert 12VDC to 220V 50Hz. You can build it easily and inexpensively.  Friends favorite this.  Because like working outdoors, or to backup storage to use when necessary. Most of this is circuit low power, which is not suitable for practical applications.

My friends said that he would be about 500 Watts. It is a good size. Use with television receivers and light bulbs as well.

How it works

inverter circuit 12V to 220V 500w

When looking for the circuit. I get headaches. If you are a beginner or I cannot buy expensive good quality circuits. Requires only one transistor. Or if you have free time. I want to build an old circuit is alive again. This circuit will accommodate all your needs.

It is a simple circuit. The same principle, I take battery voltage 12V to produce an oscillator about 100 Hz and pass to a two frequency divider circuit is only 50HZ. And drive a 10-ampere transformer with 10 x 2N3055 transistor in parallel. By a single transistor has 2A, when I use 10 transistors or 5 pairs of drive high current output.

The complexity of circuit, but the principle is not it, and it is the number of transistors on a basic, easy to buy. You may be modified 100-watt power inverter To the size of transistors and transformers as well.

1. Battery for these projects.
If you need 500 watts output. Your battery must be 45Ah. (500w/12V = 41A).
Maximum current for 1 hour.

2. The solar battery charger( 18 volts solar voltage)
Full sunrise power on a day about 5 hours.
So you need current from the solar is (45A/5hour = 9A)
or 9A x 18V = 160 watts.

Is it difficult for you? Let’s see an easy circuit better.

Make 555 Inverter circuit

555 inverter circuit diagram with MOSFET

Do you want to learn a simple inverter circuit? The output is about 50 watts. And using a few parts and a small circuit.

Here is an IC 555 inverter circuit. Because of using 555 timer and MOSFET as main.  I experiment it to work well.

DC to AC Converter circuit

Prototypes-of-DC converter to AC

Using CD4047 and MOSFET, transistors output max 60 watts
This way is easy to make, small.

The 12 volts of a Car battery and converted to AC 220V 60 watts. Then apply to appliances easily. And portability easy with Because of the small. In-circuit we use CD4047 and BD249 as the main part so is a mini circuit.

How to make simple inverter circuit diagram within 5 minutes

In the two Circuit diagram below, just use 2 transistor, 2 resistors, and one transformer only. They can convert 12VDC from battery to 220VAC or 120VAC to apply small light bulbs or lamps max 10 watts.

Also 500W inverter circuit for you

If you think that This circuit is not good enough. For your work. It is hard to find equipment. You do not have it now. These circuits may be viewed below. It may be appropriate for you.

1. Inverter 500W 12V to 220V By IC 4047+2N3055

Using this circuit you can convert the 12V dc in to the 220V Ac. In this
circuit 4047 is use to generate the square wave of 50hz and amplify the
current and then amplify the voltage by using the step transformer.


How to calculate transformer rating

The basic formula is P=VI and between input output of the
transformer we have
Power input = Power output

For example if we want a 220W output at 220V then we need 1A at the output.
Then at the input we must have at least 18.3V at 12V because: 12V*18.3 =

So you have to wind the step up transformer 12v to 220v but input winding
must be capable to bear 20A.

2. 500 watts MOSFET power inverter circuit

As 200 watts inverter circuit. We use Q1, Q2 is the mosfet acts as a power output. That can withstand currents up to 18A. According to properties listed in the table of Figure 2. If the circuit is fully functional with maximum power of 12V x 18A = 216 watts. But in practice, the circuit should work up, it may be damaged. Therefore, it is designed to operate up to 200 watts.

Since we want the current more than 40A. But the power mosfet single, able to withstand current is 18A, therefore have to be 3 pcs. And When designing a circuit in a push-pull model thus requires a power mosfet 3 pairs.

We have the output current up to 54A which can withstand more demanding than 14A. It is good for the operation of the circuit. Because each power mosfet will not be overburdened. And the heat of the mosfet least, the lifetime of the life circuit.
