Can the inverter power a house?

Whether the power inverter can supply power to a house depends on whether the rated power of the inverter is large enough. If you want to use an inverter to power a house, the size of the inverter should be selected based on the total power of the equipment to be operated.

Once you have determined the equipment to be connected to the inverter, you can calculate and purchase an inverter of the appropriate size. For example, suppose you want to connect a laptop, light bulb, TV, and printer. The first thing is to figure out how much power each device uses, and add them up: laptop 100w, light bulb 100w, LCD TV 250w, printer 50w, A total of 500w. Then in theory, as long as the rated power of the inverter is greater than 500w, the entire house can be powered. However, because the inverter has its own loss, we suggest adding at least 20% of the margin on the basis of 500w. That is, 500w+20%*500w=600w.

The power mentioned above is the rated power, and the peak power should be considered when selecting the inverter size. The starting power of some electrical appliances may be several times its rated power, so pay attention to the peak power of the inverter.

It should also be noted that the inverter is only a conversion instrument from DC to AC. The source of power supply is the power generated by the solar panel and the battery capacity. The time when the inverter supplies power to a house should also consider the power generated by the solar panel and the size of the battery And other factors.
