Nothing special just only web presence, here I gathered some
information regarding myself and my work, I am not professional
website developer so don't expect a professional quality business
level website :)
I request to you to kindly visit my blog and let me know how it
is and yes if you have some thing to share through it, I will be
very much happy to included your article, news, update, even job
Click here to visit my linked in profile that is not complete but
some day I will done it ...

12 V DC to 220 V AC Inverter
Now a days when electricity is getting expensive
and at some remote areas it is totally not available. This simple
circuit is the answer to the problem.
R1 and R2 are of 10 ohm, wire-wound and at least
5 watts. Cooling should be increased if you decide to beef up
output. For D1 and D2 any power diode can be used.
The 68uf Tantalum capacitors were chosen
for their endurance). electrolytic capacitor would over heat and
The power is determined by the transformer (T1)
and power transistors Q1 and Q2. Assume a transformer of about 15A
and the chosen transistors 2N3055 (15A) type, the inverter
can supply about 300 Watts with the parts in this circuit.
If you are good with electronics all you have to
replace transformer accordingly for more output. NTE 181
Transistors can be used as it carries 90 volts and dissipate power
200W. It is mandatory to mount power transistors to proper heat sink
plate and add a cooling fan.
You should include fuse to both stages (input and
output) and project should be completed with proper casing and it
would be good to have a cooling fan in casing.
I made it on small PCB by heavy prints with 1 A
general 220 to 12 V step down transformer. During testing circuit
worked OK at 100-150 watts load :)
Photos would be uploaded soon....
