# Simple 100W inverter circuit

Description.

Here is the circuit diagram of a simple 100 watt inverter using IC CD4047 and MOSFET IRF540. The circuit is simple low cost and can be even assembled on a veroboard.

CD 4047 is a low power CMOS astable/monostable multivibrator IC. Here it is wired as an astable multivibrator producing two pulse  trains of 0.01s which are 180 degree out of phase at the pins 10 and 11 of the IC. Pin 10 is connected to the gate of Q1 and pin 11 is connected to the gate of Q2. Resistors R3 and R4 prevents the loading of the IC by the respective MOSFETs. When pin 10 is high Q1 conducts and  current flows through the upper half of the transformer primary which accounts for the positive half of the output AC voltage. When pin 11 is high Q2 conducts and  current flows through the lower half of the transformer primary in opposite direction and it accounts for the negative half of the output AC voltage.

Circuit diagram.

Notes.

• B1 can be  a 12V/ 6Ah lead acid battery.
• Q1 and Q2 must be fitted to a proper heat sink.
• T1 can be a 9-0-9 V primary, 230V secondary, 150VA transformer .
• Do not expect much from this circuit. The is very simple one suitable for low grade applications.

sir what is the use of resistances R1 and R2?AND WHY THE VALUE GIVEN IS 330 OHM AND 1 KILOOHM?

• naeema nataj
November 8, 2015

dear preeti
R2 is for led protection to limit its current and can be form 1K to 3.3K and if you put higher value the LED lighting
will dim .
diode D@ is for protection of the chip CD4047 from revers polarity of the battery
R1 is for current limit of the CD 4047 and it is better to be 100 ohm 1.5 W

• March 5, 2015

You are using irf 540 as switching mosfet, of course the center tap will be positive, if you use Transistors 3055 then also it will work or use irf 540 this also work, but irf 540 has higher amp working.

is that circuit works properly.
How is the output of MOSFET, square wave or sine wave.

• naeema nataj
November 9, 2015

it is a very simple inverter and the output is square without feedback so there is no regulation for it which means if you connect higher load to it the voltage will drop .
good luck

pls sir. i built 100 watts inverter the output is 210v when i connect load on it the voltage drop to 11o vols pls how can i solve this problem, pls help me.

• naeema nataj
November 9, 2015

dear mensah
this is a very simple inverter so there is no feedback from output to input to regulate your voltage . about the voltage
drop i can say first your transformer ratio is higher than 12 volt and second your load is higher than the switching
current . use a battery with more current capacity and check your transformer

hi setharaman when i checked the output of this inverter it showed 295v ac ,but i want to use it for my laptop charge ,for my laptop charger the max input voltage is 100-240 volts only ,is it safe to use this inverter wont it damage the charge by giving over voltage

• seetharaman

hi setharaman finally managed to get 200w of output with suitable transformer ,but can i power my laptop charger ,is it safe

• Seetharaman

You can power any device. Ensure you use through surge protected supply sockets as the inverter is a square wave one. ( they call it commercially as computer power supply distribution board with filter and transient suppressor )

• naeema nataj

dear vasudev
yes you can connect your laptop charger to it and as you may know laptop chargers are switching mode so can work
from 150V to 280V without problem .

does excess of gate current destroy the gate region of mosfet

• seetharaman
June 29, 2014

Excess drive voltage can kill, but with zener diode it can be protected. Within the drive voltage range there can be no over current

• vasudev
June 27, 2014

hi setharaman if we increase the gate current does the output power increases

• Seetharaman
June 28, 2014

As the gate current increases the drain current in turn will increase hence more current through primary winding of the transformer, which will increase the power output.

• vasudev
June 23, 2014

if we increase the gate current does the output power increases

• vasudev
June 19, 2014

hi setharaman out of all other different types inverters,i found this is the best,reliable,strong enough inverter but connecting mosfets in parallel to increase output power did not work properly (the output power did not increase),i connected 3 mosfets in parallel ,ie totally i used 6 mosfets with 9-0-9v 5amps transformer ,the output is still 45 watts only

• vasudev
June 18, 2014

hi can i directly connect this inverter to 30ah car battery,doesn’t the gate region of mosfets or ic(cd4047) will blow due to inrush current.i am asking this question because, i have destroyed many mosfets & ic before by doing so

• Seetharaman
June 19, 2014

Should not give problem in this application, provided you are not using a higher rating transformer and try to draw higher output than the above design.

• vasudev
June 16, 2014

hi setharaman check this website -www.circuitsgallary.com (simple low power inverter),here they have used 12-0-12v 5a transformer.i tried this circuit with 12-0-12v -5amps & it was a good quality transformer too,but it did not give 60w output

• Seetharaman
June 17, 2014

The source drain drop will be approximately 0.6 to 0,8 volts, hence balance voltage of 11.2 to 11.4 will be available across primary winding hence the output voltage will also will be less at 200 volts instead of 230 volts. Check whether each winding is rated for 5a ms that is 12 volt 5 amps and 12 5 amps that is total VA rating is 120VA. not 60 va. In India if they say 12-0-12 @ 5 amps means it is only a 60 VA transformer. with an efficiency of say 60 to 65 % it can produce only 36 to 40 watts output.

• vasudev
June 10, 2014

hi setharaman what is the necessity of resistor r1,will it decrease the output power ,can i decrease the value. why i am asking this because ,i was testing this circuit with 30ah car battery ,it was working well yesterday but when i started it today it did not work at all & like this many ic’s are damaged .can u give me a solution for this problem

• vasudev
June 9, 2014

hi i have found an alternative for connecting mosfets in parallel ,i.e to use even more power full mosfets like irfz3205 ,which can handle upto 600w of output with suitable transformer

hi i want to use just 7-8 amp transformer because,i saw (in youtube)a guy running his tv,music amplifier,hifi,etc with just 7amp 9-0-9v transformer .he said he used ne555,cd4017& 6 mosfets in parallel ,he powered them all with 7ah battery

• vasudev
June 9, 2014

he also told that it gave 500w of output,is it true

• Seetharaman
June 9, 2014

How it is possible to get >500VA from a 72 VA transformer. Not practicable. No transformer can have 7 times over load. 25 to 30% over load is possible not greater than that.
To increase the drive current from CD4047 (it is limited to 2mA appox) use NPN transistor like 2N2219 between IC out put pins and the MOSFET. (CD4017 is capable of 6.8mA drive current)

• vasudev
June 7, 2014

hi how much power can i expect if i use 9-0-9 volt 7-8 amps transformer with 2 mosfets in parall,i amp using 30ah car battery

• Seetharaman
June 8, 2014

Hi Vasudev your transformer capacity is only 7 to 8 amps, say maximum of 72 VA alone can be expected why 2 MOSFETS in parallel? 1 pair itself can take care up to 150VA. If you want 300VA you can use 2 in parallel (that is 4 MOSFETs) Then your transformer must be rated for 25Amps @ 9-0-9 volts

• vasudev
June 6, 2014

hi setharam i used a good quality 12-0-12v transformer with 5amp rating instead of 9 volts transformer ,it did not do well at all ,i expected a 60w output & it is not coming ,can you tell me why it is happening. i thing using 9-0-9v at 5 amps is the best idea

• vasudev
June 5, 2014

hi setharaman i used 9-0-9v transformer with 5a rating, it worked well & gave 40 watts output but that cant do for me .so i wanted up to 200watts of output ,you suggested me to use more mosfets in parallel what should be the value of r3 & r4 . in the link you suggested the values are not properly given

• Seetharaman
June 6, 2014

It is shown as 220 per MOSFET If you are using 2 MOSFETs 220 / 2 = 110 ohms say you can use 100 ohms per MOSFET. If it is 3 MOSFETs 220 / 3 = 73 ohms use 68 ohms for each MOSFET etc etc.

• Seetharaman

No the loss will be quite high and the MOSFETs also may get damaged as the transformer impedance will be quite low. Still it can be used provided you take care of the maximum drive current through the MOSFETs. Make a 500 watts UPS as there are lots of circuit available on the net.

• LordB1
June 3, 2014

if I could recall, you made a statement about an inverter on which factors it depends on.. (i) the driven maximum current of the transistors and (ii) the transformer maximum current rating. now assume we have in the above circuit the required current rating and we want our inverter to produce more at the output, you said we should include mosfet in parallel?? sorry to ask, the leads how do we get to do that in parallel?? but a question I want to ask, why not in series?? though the question is ridiculous knowing the fact it has three leads… like I said earlier, sorry to ask. I just want to know how and why it has to be the way they are

• Seetharaman
June 4, 2014

Please see the reply to Vasudev. Since we have to increase the current drive to the transformer we require more MOSFETs in parallel. Each MOSFET will share the current drive. Say each can drive 10Amps 2 in parallel can drive up to twice the current of one that is 20 AMps. So the energy available at the primary of the transformer is 12 volt X 20 Amps instead of 12 Volt X 10 Amps. The transformer rating should be taken care.

Connect drain together and for Source use say 0.22 ohms for each Mosfer (source and -ve supply or common)and for gate individual drive resistance. You may have to reduce R3 & R4 values. Use the following link as a guideline.

• Seetharaman

Add a suitable driver transistor between IC output and MOSFETS. Use more MOSFETS in parallel to improve drive current to primary of the transformer.

• vasudev
May 31, 2014

why is c3 capacitor required,though we are giving pure dc

• Seetharaman
May 31, 2014

The power should not become a common impedance which will lead to instability, (due to power supply lead resistance etc) to avoid we have to decouple the power supply nearer to high current drawing device.

You will get 100VA for little more than 1/2 hr. 500VA UPS also uses this same battery only, it will operate just for 5 minutes, the time for you to save the file on which you are working and to exit, when power fails during operation of PCs.

Description.

Here is the circuit diagram of a simple 100 watt inverter using IC CD4047 and MOSFET IRF540. The circuit is simple low cost and can be even assembled on a veroboard.

CD 4047 is a low power CMOS astable/monostable multivibrator IC. Here it is wired as an astable multivibrator producing two pulse trains of 0.01s which are 180 degree out of phase at the pins 10 and 11 of the IC. Pin 10 is connected to the gate of Q1 and pin 11 is connected to the gate of Q2. Resistors R3 and R4 prevents the loading of the IC by the respective MOSFETs. When pin 10 is high Q1 conducts and current flows through the upper half of the transformer primary which accounts for the positive half of the output AC voltage. When pin 11 is high Q2 conducts and current flows through the lower half of the transformer primary in opposite direction and it accounts for the negative half of the output AC voltage.

Circuit diagram.

Notes.
◾B1 can be a 12V/ 6Ah lead acid battery.
◾Q1 and Q2 must be fitted to a proper heat sink.
◾T1 can be a 9-0-9 V primary, 230V secondary, 150VA

• Seetharaman
April 3, 2014

Both the MOSFET are alternately switched on use a scope across one of the primary windings. with a multimeter on AC range measure at the transformer secondary for 230 volts. If not check the 4047 circuit fo proper oscillation at 50 Hz check with a frequency meter.

• Jamey
April 5, 2014

I did not understand the part ‘use a scope across one of the primary windings’ !
I haven’t connected any transformer yet,I wanted to make sure the output from the inverter without transformer is 12V AC first, cause 12v DC from battery should be inverted to 12V ac,but its showing only 0.25!

• Jamey
April 5, 2014

Is there any other alternative to not using the 0.1uF 600V capacitor in the transformer section, cause its risky and my university is not allowing me to order it. I bought the transformer though

• Seetharaman
April 6, 2014

Trough the transformer alone the MOSFETS are getting the supply without connect it you will never get any output at its Drain as it becomes an open drain circuit.

Any alternative to the 0.1uF 600V rated capacitor? In our university lab, we only have capacitors of 25V capacity!

• Seetharaman
April 7, 2014

Hi Jamey you have to use 450V DC or 250 Volts AC capacitor only. Without transformer connected no supply is fed to the MOSFET drains, you will not get any amplification hence no output. You can try with a load resistance also for the MOSFETs, without transformer on an oscilloscope the square waveform will appear.

Seetharaman,Tell me the purpose of C4, what I think it shouldn’t place in parallel on out because it will short the output. In D.C we can use decoupling capacitor but in A.C if u use it in same fashion through capacitor C4 all the voltage will sink to the ground through it & output will become zero.

Hi you are right but here the value is very low and it is used for smoothing the sharp edges of square wave output of the inverter. Such that the square wave edges will get rounded, the harmonic output also will get reduced

• November 29, 2013

Hello,

I do not practice English fluently so I am forced to use online translation .
I am a modest French electronics and retired for 4 years , I have invested in renewable energy for personal use (2.5 KW Photovoltaic and wind)
Everything works fine . But less than 4 years , 2 3 KW inverters sine did not take the road as unreliable.
I decided not to buy expensive and impossible to repair converters. So for almost a year , I’m looking for a solution to build a converter 3 KW .
Currently , I experimented with a 555 + SA 4017 CD . Power mosfets IRFP 250/ 260 IRFP . The transformer is a 3 KVA new. Several mosfets are connected in parallel when the development will be effective .
The result is insignificant. Look here:
http://libre-infos.eklablog.com/electronique-c19781471

Do you think the use of CD 4047 will improve the power expected .
What is the width of the pulses delivered by the 4047 CD , compared with the 4017 CD ?
Watch here the draft very temporary mounting with a 120 W lamp that lights the secondary half . 120 volts measured with a digital controller.
If you wish, thank you to tell me what you think.

Regards
Marcelin

Hi Manikanth if you increase the AH of the battery the inverter will work for a longer duration. say if you use a 12 volt 7AH battery for this inverter you will get the inverter going for 45 minutes if your load is 100VA. if you use a fully charged 12 volt 40AH battery it will work for 4 1/2 hours without needing for recharge for the same load.

Here we are using ic4047 as astable or monostable multivibrator.Can we replace with 555 timer.please reply me sir

• Anish
January 15, 2013

555 timer has only one output. But 4047 has two outputs which are compliment to each other. Similar to a flip-flop. Moreover, conversions like this – DC to AC, AC to DC etc has more power loss. 4047 is a CMOS IC and hence consumes very low power compared to the TTL 555 timer. Any way the obvious reason may be the two kinds of o/p offered by 4047 and also, it uses minimal external components than 555.

hi, you can use normal transformer which in E,I core.transformer always works on ac voltage.you can use 9-0-9 ac transformer with 10 amp.if your monitor wattage is less than 100 w than you can use this circuit.transformer can work both sides if you give input 220 v ac than it become step down 9-0-9 ac and if you give this side 9-0-9 ac then it can give us 220v ac and called step up transformer.so same transformer can work both things.

Hi Kirthik your transformer should be low loss type. If you want 45 watts out put say at PF 0.8 then the VA at secondary should be 56VA and if the transformer efficiency is say 80% then the primary side requirement is around 70VA with 12 volt supply the requirement is 6 amps approximately. Your transformer should be for a primary of 10.8-0-10.8Volt and with a rating of 70 VA. Secondary should be rated for 230 volts. (a torroidal transformer will be a better choice)

hi seetharaman,im already build this inverter using 12-0-12/12va at primary..it can run 40w bulb but when i use 100w bulb it not run. should i change the transformer rating?

-tq very much for your advice sir 🙂

Hi Haidar the harmonics are taken care by the output filter capacitor C4 you can increase it to 0.47uF 630V AC. This is sufficient to take care of all harmonics hence can be used with computer, Solid state TV etc (sensitive electronic gadgets)

hi seetharaman, this circuit can run tv?
and how to reduce harmonic?

Hi Haidar all resistances can e 1/4 watt. You can use 9-0-9 75 VA transformer you will get higher voltage with low loads and at rated load it will be alright. 11-0-11 120VA is the transformer which suits better.
Hi Azrin you can use 12-0-12 but output voltage will be around 200volts with 230V secondary winding and with 250V winding the output will be 220volts.

hi seetharaman ,i have 2 question

1) can i use 1watt for each resistor
2)can i use transformer 9-0-9/230 , 75va

how much amount required for this project except 12v battery.

• seetharaman
September 12, 2011

Hi Nihar with a MOSFET transistor as their switch on resistance are quite low you can can use 12-0-12 transformer the right choice. dont use 9-0-9 transformer with MOSFET. use recommended transistors for 9-0-9 transformer use.

• September 9, 2011

i have a 9-0-9 transformer from an old u.p.s .when i connect the transformer to the mosfet ,the mosfet becomes hot at no load condition ,output is 280 volt,when battery voltage decreases it works properly.i changed the transformer to 12-0-12 ,mosfets are not heating, the output is 220 volt .this is suitable.please tell me how can i use the 9-0-9 transformer safely . thanks in advance..

Hi Dev with 9-0-9 you will get an output of 270volts with fully charged battery, if this is acceptable you can proceed.

hi, i have made this circuit at the pcb board(holed).
the current is passing through IC but there isnt any output at secondry winding of transformer . even that ihave checked the ckt. thrice and there isnt any mistake in connections . none of the joints is loose and each of them have been soldered. also please let me know an alternate transformer (with its current and voltage ratings) that can be used in same citcuit without alterations.please respond soon .also please send me its block diagram, would be really helpfull.

Hi Neo the battery voltage is switched on alternately to the primary of the transformer. The switching device is MOSFET the drop across them is negligible hence full battery voltage will be available across primary winding. if the transformer is 9 volt with 9 volt output will be 230volt square wave if it is 12 volt you will have 33% higher voltage at the output. without load you will get around 300 volt square wave.

Hi, I don’t know much about power electronics. I build this circuit with 9-0-9 v primary and 230 v secondary (115-0-115)transformer.
I get output 240 v at secondary when I connect center tap of primary to 11 v and much higher when connected to 12 v. what is this relationship, is there a formula that I can use to work out what voltage center tap should be connected for this type of transformer.

Hi Sankalp CD4047 is a CMOS IC iy can give an output of around 1mA which is not sufficient to drive the transformer directly, hence you require transistor take care of the high current drive to the transformer. The MOSFETs used are enhancement type they require bias to conduct. These devices require voltage drive ( around 2.5 to 4 volt)with very little current. cmos IC can take care of this.

• Sankalp
April 7, 2011

Hey, I tried to build that circuit. It’s the same problem again. Getting output pulses from the CD4047 IC but ultimately, getting nothing at the end…

and can anyone explain to me the working of the mosfets? I mean if i’m getting 23V AC from the 4047, Why not just connect it to the transformer directly??

Hi Darren you have to take saturation voltage of the final power transistor at 5 amps say it is 2 volt you require a 12 – 2 = 10 volt transformer (10-0-10). if you use 12 volt you will get 10 to 15% less out put voltage, if that is ok you can go ahead..

• Seetharaman
October 25, 2010

Hi Darren you can use 2nos mosfets in parallel or even more. you may have to add a driver transistor in between. Something similar to the following circuit

Hi Shashi One ceiling fan say 48″ it will consume 90watts, two CFL 18 watts so total requirement is 108watts say inverter efficiency is 85%. Then the primary requirement is 108 / 0.8 = 135VA if the battery voltage is 12 then the current requirement will be 11.25Amp. your battery capacity is 7AH so if draw 7amps it will supply for 1hr approx so if you draw 11.25 amps the battery can supply for 35 minutes. hence your back up will be for appoximately 35minutes
