IIT Ropar researchers invent pen-size inverter


PATIALA: Researchers at IIT Ropar have invented a pocket-size inverter, which is almost the scale of a pen. The researchers claimed that the inverter would price round Rs five,000, which may be very reasonable than any commercially to be had inverter.

The compact sized inverter is useful for UPS, electrical automobiles and renewable power power conversion programs. Owing to the rising destructive effects of pollutants and depletion of herbal assets, generation of electrical power the usage of renewable power resources and insist for pollution-free electrical vehicle applied sciences is the will of the hour.



Having dimensions of 14×five cm, the designed inverter is 4KVA, which is able to driving as much as 5HP field machines. The researchers claimed that if compared, this pocket-size inverter can supply the ability four times more than the home UPS inverters. The researchers said that inverters being utilized in houses may convert and supply power as much as 1.1KV, whereas this new compact design is able to supplying power as much as 4KV.


Its design accommodates two-layer printed circuit board (PCB), the place the elements are accommodated on two sides of the board. “The batteries should be hooked up in a similar fashion as it is used with other inverters. However, our newly designed inverter is four times more robust than the home inverters. One can lift this compact inverter, having current ranking as much as 10A, while travelling in automobiles,” said A V Ravi Teja, assistant professor at electric engineering division, IIT Ropar.


The analysis has been performed via Teja and his PhD scholars Ashwani Kumar Rana and Muddasani Satyanarayana in the institute.
