Inverter Generators provide portable and emergency electrical power for commercial and consumer applications.
A shown in the diagram Inverter Generators first rectify the AC output from the generator and then invert it back to a Pure Sine Wave AC signal out. The dsPIC controller performs complete digital control of the inverter that provides a Pure Sine Wave AC power output as well as general system control for the unit. The has many benefits over traditional generators because it can vary the power being generated to perfectly match the load conditions.
Devices that are well suited for solar invterter applications include ones from the SMPS and Digital Power Conversion family such as the dsPIC33FJ16GS504.
