    This DIY 12V to 220V DC to AC converter is built with CMOS 4047 that is the main component of this small voltage converter that transforms a 12VDC into 220VAC. 4047 is used as an astable mutivibrator, at pins 10 and 11 will have a symmetrical rectangular signal (square wave) which is amplified by 2 Darlington transistors and finally reach the secondary coil of mains transformer (2x10V/60W).

    Video Presentation 1 – without load

    Video Presentation 2 – with load (light bulb)

    With the help of P1 the output frequency can be adjusted between 50Hz to 400Hz. Although this is not part of any professional dc ac converter it can be used quite effective on some home appliances. Be aware that the output signal is square and not sine wave. So you cannot use it for powering TV, Laptops, monitors. Use it only for lighting, power tools and other non-expensive equipment.

        I thank you very much for this educative site. My question is how do I purchase this ICI CMOS 4047. Or is it available every where.I will like to know the total cost for the circuit components. Thank.

        It is very cheap, CD4047 around 2$. The most expensive component is the transformer, I think is around 20$. The total cost of this 12 Volts dc – 220 Volts ac is around 50$, depending on your location.

      Jens, don’t get me wrong, but I’m pretty sure that CMOS 4047 it is not a micro-controller either a plc, is just a monostable/astable vibrator, there is no program for this IC, the only thing is to do some soldering and done.

      May be you are confused with other IC?

Worked very well till I took her to her limits and burnt up my 3055′s But now I know and will build another with a second step on the 3055′s to handel more current draw,,or find more powerful transistors.

        is a slow blow fuse
        The ‘T’ comes from the German Traege
        They set that ‘DIN’ standard long time ago.

        IC CA3130 is a 15MHz BiMOS operational(8pin) amplifier with MOSFET inputs and CMOS output.Gate protected MOSFETs are used in the inputs so that the IC has very high input impedance. It is very sensitive and requirs very low input current.It is a general purpose Op-Amp which is commonly available

      • You can find this circuit by “Googling” “12Vdc to 120Vac sinewave inverter circuit schematic. I too was wanting to build one, but found the circuit a bit to complex for my limited knowledge and experimental funds. So for now,,just little steps. The sinewave you are looking for is graduated squarewave steps, still square but the peaks/pulse intensifies up a few steps to the desired peak then down in equal steps then up again and so on. Done with microprocessor to manage the pulse train

      • zener used for breakdown voltage if you want to clampdown particular voltage u can do that where as mov is used once high voltage occurs at particular say mov for 220v more than that occurs it shorts and there will be know power beyond

        and let me tell you, that i have also used a 12V transformer and yes my circuit has worked very well. i had also mistook the impedance coil with fuse before. but later i understood…

      • Dear friend,

        Your idea use of a solar panel for the 12V to 220V is good and naturally. When you have such idea, you must have a concept on the Solar panel, i.e., How it works, When it works. means it delivers its maximum Current when the sun is in full illumination. 2. It is not source of Static energy like a battery. 3. A converter/ Inverter of above type always requires a study DC current, to give a study VA output, i.e., your load applied to the converter. So now you can easily imagine the use of solar panel.

        Coming to the Transformer details, a transformer with 12-0-12/5A=6Amp rating is needed for the above circuit and the transistor BD699

    117. a refrigerator compressor has nearly always an under-oil induction motor, which is started by an auxiliary winding. This is quite normal and usually you would use a capacitor to generate the phase shift between main and auxiliary winding. But in order to save it, the refrigerators have a resistive auxiliary winding. The capacitor is replaced by a resistor, and also this is saved by making the winding partly bifilar. There is a starter relais, which switches the aux winding shortly on and very quickly off again when the motor is running. This starter relais reacts on the main winding current. During startup it is high and the simple relais activates the auxiliary phase. When the current drops, this auxiliary phase is switched off.
      That means a high current peak during startup. I have measured up to 10A on a 120W compressor. When connecting the refrigerator to the inverter (similar as above) the inverter voltage broke down, and the motor did not start. It tried again, did not succeed etc. This instability damaged the contacts of the starter relais without ever starting.
      I solved the problem by using a 600W inverter for the 120W compressor and putting a large capacitor in series with the auxiliary phase to reduce the current at equal phase shift. I think it was around 20uF MP type.
      In your case I would guess you need an inverter of about 300W and the mentioned capacitor to handle the start problem.

    119. …well, I wrote so much to give background info. So that you have a better start when solving the problems which will certainly come.
      Yes, i recommend to use an oversized inverter at first, then try the capacitor. It needs to be put into the auxiliary phase. Also, I recommend compensating the motor to reduce the current, and take care that there are strong freewheeling diodes in the inverter, else it cannot handle the inductive load of the compressor motor.

      This diagram worked out for a 220v 50Hz. 20 watt motor without any load.
      Alas for my projects it didn’t work out properly, the voltage collapsed when I pulled up the frequency.
      I need a stable 220v ~ at a higher and adjustable frequency (50 to ± 200 Hz.)
      In the Capstan motor ( Papst 220v.50Hz 2.5w ) the magnetic field collapses when the voltage drops.

      So I’m working on this one now ,with thanks to http://www.circuitstoday.com and Nickk.
      Got all the parts here,want to buy the PCB from NICKK.

      http://www.circuitstoday.com/pwm-inverter-circuit

      —————————————————-
      I use The PWM output (0-10v DC) of the PLC to generate a resistor parallel over potmeter R1 (100K)
      with a LED shining INTO the LDR using the LDR as variable resistor depending on the light output of the LED. http://led.linear1.org/1led.wiz

      The LED/LDR are in an enclosed housing.
      this works , is tested with THIS Oscilloscope http://www.sillanumsoft.org/prod01.htm (THX Alfredo)

    123. the voltage needs to rise about linearily with frequency when driving a motor with variable speed.

      In the schematic according to the link above, are 3 transistors as darlington, this costs a lot of voltage drop, roughly 1.5V are lost in fully conducting state, so the transformer should have a reduced voltage winding.

      The LED-LDR will work. In 1981 ELV had an inverter where they used a small lamp and an LDR together in a closed casing and called it “effective value coupler”.
      Because the lamp lights as bright as the effective value of the voltage is, no matter if rectangular or sinusoidal.

      I have just made a 160W inverter. If someone likes to have the schematics pls mail me, will send them. The IMGUR picture platform is down.

        Hey Joribo,

        That’s why there is potmeter R9 on the feedback from the ‘created’ 220v ~.
        I might have to do there something similar as what I do with R9 in conjunction with potmeter R1 , we’ll see.
        That’s the beauty on this inverter, adjustment of voltage .AND. frequency.
        Nickk made an addition to it, up to 5000 wattt !!

        http://www.instructables.com/id/250-to-5000-watts-PWM-DCAC-220V-Power-Inverter/

        See also the pictures a bit lower in that page.

        I first have to build and try it out.
        If this inverter doesn’t do the job I got a circuit with pure sinus laying around as well.
        Alas , ‘Time’ :/

    124. You should remember when cascading power transistors in an invertor like this the output Q(impediance) becomes lower to the point where an almost dead short can be applied to the the output of your invertor also note that the current now controlling your invertor can make your power supply go up in smoke if the parammeters is being exceeded. Also note the Q on the primary winding should be updated as well where some guys rewind a microwave transformer where 2mm wire is being used the thickness of the wire should rise proportionally to the amount of cascaded transistors being used….

        Hey Philip ,
        You’re fully right about the wiring sizes.
        On Instructables , the site where the circuit diagram came from , Nickk has also noted this under
        tab 7>
        You can also see it on the pictures of the transformers.

        For me that is less important ,
        I need only 2.5 watts output from the inverter
        at a steady 220 volt with a variable frequency.
        Even starting the motor will be from the standard 220v. mains and then completely taken over, when needed, with interlocked relays. (both ~ .AND. N )

      Hi, wonderful circuit. Will it work for 100W fan ?
      Please help.

      Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    126. ..if the fan has an induction motor, it will run at both rectangular and rectangular-with-gaps voltage, but at reduced power. The motor should be compensated to relief the inverter from unnecessary reactive current. For example, I have operated a laundry spin-dryer.
      If the motor is a “universal motor”, which is a series-wound DC motor with commutator, the motor will run well. But if there is a phase-cut control unit for speed control, this will not work.
      If the motor has an auxiliary winding with capacitor, the capacitor size needs to be changed by test and trial. And the power is reduced.
      As a special problem, it might happen that an induction motor runs up to a partial speed and stays there and becomes hot. In this case it helps to use an LC filter (L in series and C in parallel to the motor) to round off the sharp edges of the rectangles. This will reduce the harmonics content.
      Refrigerator motors are something special and very difficult to operate on inverters.

      Yes it is just like in India, it has a capacitor in it which has value of 4.3uF, 250V.

    130. ok then it is an auxiliary phase induction motor, will run on the inverter but with reduced power, higher losses and needs two small modifications.
      One is to compensate the motor by adding a compensation capacitor in parallel to the whole motor (basically to the secondary side of the transformer), and the second is to optimize the capacitor which is now 4.3uF. It might need to be enlarged a bit. I would start with the compensation capacitor and try to get best possible operation with least current. Rough estimate for starting: 10uF.
      The 4.3 uF is the phase shifting capacitor, that may be better with 5 to 7, but I can just guess as I have not seen the motor. Aim of this capacitor is a 90 degree phase shift in the winding currents between main and auxiliary winding. You can optimize this quickly if you have a 2-channel oscilloscope. Else just need some trial and error.

      Thank you Joribo, secondary side of the transformer is which one! 12v or 220v ??, because in this circuit stepdown transformer is used in revers.

      And also what would be the value of this compensation capacitor ?

      Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    132. It belongs to the 230V side (in some countries 220V). The reason for this compensation capacitor is to neutralize the reactive current of the motor. If this is done correctly, the inverter will supply only the needed power to the motor and not additionally a lot of reactive power, circulating around. This circulating around of reactive current happens through the transformer and the freewheeling diodes on the 12V side into the battery and back again. Although the reactive power is no real power which is consumed, it makes real losses when circulating, so we try to avoid it. I would roughly guess as a starter value for experiments that 10uF might be ok. (pls try some 5 to 20uF)

    135. Amature,professional regardless the situation it still is a nice little circuit to experiment on most of the ppl on this site is not professionals nor do they have doctorates in electronics thus leave the kids let they play with their electronics.

    136. Yes, true (old technics)
      But this is why I like this forum.
      There are many other electronics websites, and often on high level. But we need something to help the beginners to climb up the ladder. And we need explanations, because the electronic device has few value. The value is KNOWING HOW IT WORKS and there it is good to start with simple things.
      Next step would be a sine-inverter. I have tried some circuits at home but I am not yet fully safisfied. When it runs well, will put it here (sorry, some delay due to my work).

    137. hello….
      plzz tell me how to convert 150v(8.3amp)dc to 230vac…plzz rp fast.

    138. No simple solutions on this one –there are two means:

      1. A 1:2 115 to 230VAC 60HZ step-up transformer driven by a bridge inverter consisting of (4) high voltage MOSFETS.

      or
      2. A 1:2 boost converter to generate 325VDC, and a 230V bridge inverter using high voltage MOSFETs.

      High voltage bridge inverters work –I have done this for AC motor controls, but they are very unforgiving if not EVERYTHING is done properly –not recommended for the casual experimenter.

      • Good info from joribo

        I forgot to mention IGBT power devices –they are preferred over MOSFETs as high voltage switches. Big issue is how to drive the gates –International Rectifier has nice half-bridge drivers. And a microcontroller is required to generate the “6 step” or PWM waveform and handle voltage feedback & current overload issues.

        Also, this is considerable power involved –1.25kW!

    139. …two reasonable ways:

      1. Like the above mentioned 12V to 230V inverter, but using high-voltage MOSFET’s as switching elements. The transformer should be an autotransformer (if you dont really need the galvanic separation), so there are two windings with 150V and on top of this winding the rest to make 230V. The transformer operates at 50 Hz and has a metal sheet core. Preferred is ring core or U-core.

      2. Like most of the far-east inverters. The 150V is switched with ca 25 to 40 kHz to a transformer with ferrite core. The output voltage is rectified with fast diodes. A DC smoothing capacitor makes smooth DC. Detail: dont use electrolytic but foil capacitors. Now you have DC which shall have a voltage level of the output peak voltage. Now comes an H-bridge (four MOSFETS) which alternatively switch over cross with a zero time in between. At the output you get a rectangle with gaps, same as with proposal -1.

      1 is simple and needs more space, is heavier.
      2 is more compact, lighter, tricky, needs some filters against EMC, and is sensitive to capacitive loads.

      Both 1 and 2 give “modified sine” which is just a rectangular wave with gaps, providing both correct effective and peak voltage values. If you need pure sinusoidal output, its more complicated. Recommended reading (german):
      Franz-Peter Zantis: SCHALTNETZTEILE, published by ELEKTOR (= ELEKTUUR), page 173 ff.
      FUNKSCHAU Nr. 9 -1991 they published a four page article with schematics and PCB for a small sine inverter, from which the power part could of course be modified or enlarged.

    140. how can we use power supplies for water purification ?

      Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    141. what can be done with dirty water water:
      1. normal filtering (no energy besides pumps)

      2. active carbon filter (no energy besides pumps)

      3. desinfection, alternatively or in combination
      3.1 generating Ozone with a high-voltage power supply and mixing this into the water
      3.2 passing the water slowly through a quartz glass tube inside of a transfer mirror which has elliptic cross-section, in one focal point is a strong UV-lamp and in the other focal point is the water tube.
      3.3 mixing up desinfecting substances into the water, usually based on chlorine.

      Suitable power supplies can do this job, but the above mentioned 12V / 230V inverters are not especially designed for just this purpose.

    142. What voltage is condensatoru.

      Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    143. Which one?
      the smoothing capacitors which are in parallel to the supply (usually battery) should have a certain safety in voltage because in case of inductive load the freewheeling diodes push some current back into them with 2 x operating frequency. This gives additional stress. An electrolytic capacitor does not like strong charge/discharge. So, for 12 V supply you can select 16V or 25V rated capacitors (standard values) , and in my private opinion I would use 25V just for safety.

      A capacitor on the secondary 230V side to supress voltage spikes should be rated at least 400V better 630. This is a foil capacitor for example type MKP.

      The capacitors for running a motor on the inverter will usually be MP (Metal-Paper)types and should be rated around 400V. For getting the right uF values please browse for STEINMETZ-circuit or HILGENBERG-circuit.
