# i need 12V DC to 220V AC inverter circuit

1. ## hep 154 silicon diode

hi all

i need 12V DC to 220V AC inverter circuits.
plz give me with small working circuits which r not difficult to make

2. ## inverter schematic watts

Take a look at the attached circuit ..
You can modify it to suit your needs, but the idea is there ..

3. ## 12vdc to 220vac inverter

Have you ever wanted to run a TV, stereo or other appliance while on the road or camping? Well, this inverter should solve that problem. It takes 12 VDC and steps it up to 120 VAC. The wattage depends on which tansistors you use for Q1 and Q2, as well as how "big" a transformer you use for T1. The inverter can be constructed to supply anywhere from 1 to 1000 (1 KW) watts.

Schematic

This is a schematic of the Inverter

Parts:

Part

Total Qty.

Description

Substitutions
C1, C2 2 68 uf, 25 V Tantalum Capacitor
R1, R2 2 10 Ohm, 5 Watt Resistor
R3, R4 2 180 Ohm, 1 Watt Resistor
D1, D2 2 HEP 154 Silicon Diode
Q1, Q2 2 2N3055 NPN Transistor (see "Notes")
T1 1 24V, Center Tapped Transformer (see "Notes")
MISC 1 Wire, Case, Receptical (For Output)

Notes:

1. Q1 and Q2, as well as T1, determine how much wattage the inverter can supply. With Q1,Q2=2N3055 and T1= 15 A, the inverter can supply about 300 watts. Larger transformers and more powerful transistors can be substituted for T1, Q1 and Q2 for more power.

2. The easiest and least expensive way to get a large T1 is to re-wind an old microwave transformer. These transformers are rated at about 1KW and are perfect. Go to a local TV repair shop and dig through the dumpster until you get the largest microwave you can find. The bigger the microwave the bigger transformer. Remove the transformer, being careful not to touch the large high voltage capacitor that might still be charged. If you want, you can test the transformer, but they are usually still good. Now, remove the old 2000 V secondary, being careful not to damage the primary. Leave the primary in tact. Now, wind on 12 turns of wire, twist a loop (center tap), and wind on 12 more turns. The guage of the wire will depend on how much current you plan to have the transformer supply. Enamel covered magnet wire works great for this. Now secure the windings with tape. Thats all there is to it. Remember to use high current transistors for Q1 and Q2. The 2N3055's in the parts list can only handle 15 amps each.

3. Remember, when operating at high wattages, this circuit draws huge amounts of current. Don't let your battery go dead :-).

4. Since this project produces 120 VAC, you must include a fuse and build the project in a case.

5. You must use tantalum capacitors for C1 and C2. Regular electrolytics will overheat and explode. And yes, 68uF is the correct value. There are no substitutions.

6. This circuit can be tricky to get going. Differences in transformers, transistors, parts substitutions or anything else not on this page may cause it to not function.

7. Check out this forum topic to answer many of the most commonly asked questions about this circuit: 12 - 120V Inverter Again. It covers the most common problems encountered and has some helpful suggestions.

4. ## 12v to 220v inverter circuit diagram

hey use a lower voltage high current transformer....i think since u r using 12v ...use a 12 -0 -12 transtormer with high current rating like 5-10 amps....now use the secondary to step up voltage...always remember the power remains the same only the parameters voltage and current changes.....

5. ## 12dc to 220ac

Hello!! can someone pls tell me if this inverter schematic diagram is a working diagram>? does it produce sinewave? and how much watts it produce>?

8. ## circuit schematic 12v 220v

none of these is a sin wave generator

theseare square wave generators

i made one and it worked also but

the problem i got that due to heating effect components (capacitors,resistors)were lost

resisitors can be replaced by high valkued but dont know how to save capacitor fom burning

hi tayyabpak,

You try here circuit inverter 100W (very easy too).

goog luck. :D

12. ## 12v inverter circuit

Dear eanic,
The link you have indicated is not working. Can you suggest me an easy approach to build an inverter 12VDC-220VAC 250W. Please assist me in this regard with thanks for your early responce.

That is really not a simple circuit but really a very old technique, about 30 years or longer. It is really funny if anybody uses it nowadays.

re: i have tried my hand on this circuit and i found it alright. the frequency is very stabl

19. ## 12vdc to 220vac converter

Do you have the circuit values? The IC's looks like a 4060, 4013 and 4047 but what is rest of the values?

20. ## 220vac inverter

Have any of these been tried at 110-120 voltages?... And...
What would I need to do to make it 110-120volts? (use in USA)

Thanks
James
