What does the peak power of the power inverter mean and what is the difference between it and the rated power

When determining how large a power inverter is needed, the difference between rated power and peak power must be distinguished.

Peak power is also called peak surge power, which is the maximum power that can be maintained in a short period of time (usually within 20ms) when the power inverter starts. Rated power is also called continuous output power, which is a long-term, stable power that provides continuous power for your load to work normally. If the total energy consumption of your electrical equipment is 1000 watts, what you need is a power inverter with a rated power of 1000 watts or more, and an inverter with a peak power of 1000 watts and a rated power of 500 watts is not suitable in this case.

Is peak power a tasteless parameter? no.

The starting power of some electrical appliances is several times the power required during normal operation, but it only lasts for a short time. The significance of peak power is to ensure that the power inverter can handle the spikes of such appliances and protect the power inverter, thereby preventing the spike from damaging the power inverter.

Xindun DP series power inverter 1kw-7kw, its peak power is three times the rated power, can better handle electrical spikes. Welcome to inquire.
