Many of you who use inverters know how irritating and sometimes frightening it is if it overloads. Your first instinct is to switch the inverter off if it happens.
However, have you ever wondered why it happens in the first place?
Here’s a brief explanation of why inverters, in general, tend to overload.
Reaches peak point power
You may wonder why this happens because inverters are known to withstand about twice the peak power. The problem happens if and when you simultaneously start multiple devices.
These gadgets generally consume slightly more power when starting. While the inverter can compensate a surge from one device, the power surge of multiple devices can exceed the inverter’s peak power output limit.
It, in turn, can lead to an inverter overload.
Being connected to too many appliances
There is a higher chance of true sine wave inverters experiencing a power overload and disconnecting if you use too many appliances. It’s when an overload happens in this scenario that you have to switch off both the appliances and the inverter.
You next have to unplug the electrical appliances that consume maximum power. You can then safely confine using the other devices once this is done.
Looking at these two reasons, it is quite inevitable that you have to keep a tab on the number of appliances the inverter powers. Their collective power requirements should basically not exceed the inverter’s peak power limits.
However, f you have to use numerous devices all the time, it’s better to invest in larger 2k watt power inverters. Your executives at Exeltech will guide and help you choose the right sized inverters for your power needs. It in turn helps avert any unnecessary power overloading.
Invest in only pure sine wave power inverters to power sensitive and expensive equipment like audio or medical equipment. They generate a lower frequency current that’s smoother than the output of modified sine wave inverters. Besides, the electricity produced is nearly as smooth as the power emitted at standard wall outlets.
