The word "inverter" occurs by truncating fromthe words "invert", which means "turn", "turn over", "convert". The inverter most often acts as a technical device, but this term has other meanings.
Let us consider in more detail what an inverter is.
What is an inverter in computer science?
The inverter in programming is a logical element in computer technology, which is necessary for performing a logical negation.
What is an inverter in electrical engineering?
Inverter - the device that is used forconvert DC to AC with voltage and / or frequency change. It looks like a generator of periodic voltage, in a form similar to a sinusoid. These inverters can be used as separate devices or be part of systems and uninterruptible power supplies.
What is an inverter in electronics?
The inverter is an element of the computer, where certain changes in signals are made. There are two types of inverters: digital and analog.
An analog inverter is a function block,where the output y (t) and the input x (t) are in the dependence: y (t) = - x (t). This inverter is used in the AVM structural form, when for the structural diagram it is necessary to change the sign of the quantity to the opposite one.
A digital inverter is a logical element thatperforms an inversion - logical negation operation. Typically, inverters are made from active elements with the formation and amplification of the signal at the output. This inverter is used as an integral part of the device, which performs a certain logical function.
What is a welding inverter?
Welding inverter is a new generation welding machine, in which the voltage conversion takes place several times.
Feeding standard voltagetransforms into a constant, and then again into an alternating one, but with a frequency of the order of 200 kHz. The resulting voltage is applied to a transformer which, compared to a transformer for a normal voltage of 60 Hz, is several times smaller in both weight and volume.
After the transformer, the voltage is againis converted into a constant one and fed to a welding arc. In the welding inverter, electronic current control is realized, which makes the seam clean and smooth. Also this device is characterized by very low consumption.
