INVERTERS
INVERTERSAn inverter is a device for converting direct current into alternating current at the frequency and voltage required for particular purposes. Certain systems and equipment in aircraft electrical or electronic systems require 26-V 400-Hz ac power, and others require 115-V 400-Hz power. To provide this power, it is often necessary to employ an inverter.Inverters are typically used on large aircraft for emergency situations only. In this case, the aircraft employs engine-driven generators (alternators) to supply needed ac power during normal operating conditions. If all ac generators should fail, the inverter would then be used to convert battery dc power into ac power available for essential ac loads.Many light…
