Simple Pure Sine Wave Inverter Circuit - 500 Watt Pure Sine
Posted by Swagatam Majumdar

+8 Recommend this on Google

The post explains how to make a pure sine wave inverter using ordinary components and yet get reasonably
outstanding results.

The circuit basically uses a push pull topology through a couple of 24V batteries. The use of two 24V
batteries allows lower AH batteries to be incorporated with higher efficiency and wattage.

12V batteries can be also tried however the power output would be reduced to half.

Since a dual supply is used the connected transformer does not need to be a center tapped type, rather a
two wire ordinary transformer becomes suitable here.
The couple of designs shown below are all that would be required for implementing this simple pure
sine wave inverter circuit.
The first circuit is the basic sine wave generator which becomes the feeding input to the main sine wave
amplifier or the output stage.
The sine wave generator produces a pure sine wave output with the shown components at about 50Hz, for
other frequencies the 2.5K resistor may be altered, and tested in a simulator for fixing the desired results.
The sine generator circuit should be supplied with +/-12V, and not directly from the 24V battery supply as
that might damage the IC permanently.
The opamps used in this sine generator are from the IC TL072
The next diagram shows the output stage of the proposed simple pure sine wave inverter circuit. As can be
seen the design is not at all complicated.
All the involved components are standard, and easily available.
The mosfets are IRF540n and IRF9540n which compliment each other to produce the required push pull
effect over the attached transformer.
With a 0-24V/25amp transformer, and a couple of 24V batteries the circuit would be able to generate as
high as 600 watts of pure sine wave output at the relevant voltage.
The output across the right hand side opamp of the sine generator is to be connected across the input of the
second circuit for initializing the proposed operations.

Thanks Girish,
the transformer here is 0-24V, but you can also use a 24-0-24V to make it a 48V transformer,
but the batteries will have to be 48V x 2nos...this will make the inverter 1KVA rated.

Hi Swagatam
There are two questions I would like to ask:
1. Efficiency of this inverter
2. If I use salvaged power transformer (heavy iron core type, 50hz) from an APC UPS 650, how it can be
used in 12V+0+12V circuits since its windings are 8 to 9 volts each instead of 12V. How am I supposed
to use such transformers in schematics mentioned at your site, would u like to suggest any change in
schematic etc.?
Swagatam Majumdar

May 6, 2013 at 5:44 PM

Hi Sam,
I am not sure about the efficiency because I haven't tried it yet.
8 to 9 volts in each half winding is in fact perfect for most of my designs as it would provide a
little higher than the rated 220V, so even at lower input voltages the output would stick
around 220V.

Anonymous May 8, 2013 at 11:32 AM

Hi Swagatam
Thanks for your quick response. However I have two more question:
1. if salvaged transformer winding is 8-9 volt then 12-14 volt from a juicy battery is going to damage the
winding by overheating it since it was wound for a lower voltage.
2. Moreover if salvaged transformer is from a sine wave UPS then a modified square wave or square
wave inverter may slowly damage it due to extra transients since it was made for a sine wave and not
for square wave. I think square wave transformers are made with extra winding (head room for
transients) but am not sure what do you say?
Swagatam Majumdar

May 8, 2013 at 1:13 PM

Hi Sam,
A transformer is a solid state device which is made up of metals.
It would get damaged only under conditions where it gets very hot, otherwise I don't think you
can damage an iron-cored transformer through any other means.
9V is just under 12V so it would make the transformer slightly warm, not much, moreover it's
the wattage consumption at the output that may be responsible for heating up the
transformer, if it's controlled appropriately, things would be all right.
You may incorporate my circuits which have a 555 pwm controller attached, this would give
you an option of controlling the RMS so that the transformer is not operated under incorrect
voltage parameters.

Anonymous May 28, 2013 at 5:12 AM

Hi Sir,
Your skills building inverters are amazing.
I've seen inverters that do not rely on the transformer to make the output, instead, they first transform
low DCV to high DCV (H-bridge)using FETS and small HF transformers, and then modulate for pure
sine AC through another H-Bridge i think.
Is it possible that you can give us such a design, cause it seems one can get outputs over 2000W using
small transformers.
Hope you take my proposal under consideration
Swagatam Majumdar

May 28, 2013 at 1:28 PM

Such inverters are not difficult to design except the output ferrite transformer which requires
specific calculations therefore becomes a fairly complex parameter to handle.
Due to this reason I haven't posted any of these circuits.

Hi Mr. Swagatam,
I find this design very similar to what I am looking to build for my project.
First, I need to step up 12V DC input to 240V DC output through a Flyback converter. Then, I need to
invert that output to an AC form. Can I use this circuit?
Swagatam Majumdar

Hi Mr.Weizhuan,
This circuit is not what you are looking for. The above circuit makes use of iron-core bulky
transformer, so it won't suit your application.

WeiZhuan July 23, 2013 at 8:53 PM

I see. I clearly got it wrong here.
What would you recommend for that application wish I seek to build? I've tried a H-bridge
inverter configuration. On circuit (I'm using Proteus) it works but when I implement on
hardware, it doesnt.
Can I send you an email with the simulation attached and perhap you could help me with it?

Sir Swagatam,I'm working on the circuit at the moment,but I have a some confusions which I'l be really
happy if you can clear me on. First is the use of "couple of 24v batteries". does it mean I cant build the
circuit and use single 12v battery?
secondly, The outputs in the first circuit, are two. Which of them do i connect to the second circuit as
input? If its the one on the RHS,where does the second one go?
Finally,how can i determine the Amperage of my transformer?
Swagatam Majumdar

August 8, 2013 at 10:26 AM

The above circuit works with two batteries, you can use two 12V batteries but the relative
power output will be 50% reduced than two 24V batteries.
Use the output from the green line, extreme right side.
for knowing the trafo amp apply 220V at its relevant winding, connect an AC ammeter set at
max current range on other side of the trafo for a few seconds until you get the required
current reading.

And if polarized caps are ok,how should the caps polarity be connected in the sinewave oscillator?.
Swagatam Majumdar

October 14, 2013 at 8:54 PM

you can try polarized types also, the negative lead should go towards ground symbol

Paul October 15, 2013 at 2:53 PM

Dear sir what is the voltage ratings of all the caps in your circuit sir? thank you very much sir.. and can
polyester caps be good sir? becoz i can't find 2uf nonpolar caps in electronic shops here.. thanks again
Swagatam Majumdar

October 15, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Hi Paul,
all caps are rated at 50V, yes polyester will do.

Dear Sir,
sir can i use 12v 20ah battery becoz i have issues finding 24v battery here in my country.. and is there
some modification in the circuit to be able to use 12v battery.. thank you very much sir..
Swagatam Majumdar

October 21, 2013 at 9:34 AM

Dear Paul,
12V will do, but still you would require two of them...and also the output would become half of
what could be achieved using 24+24V batteries.

Anonymous November 7, 2013 at 11:30 PM

Dear Sir, is it possible to shift the phase so the the output from the first IC TL072 and the second are at
120 degree? Iam thinking of adding a third OP AMP to get three outputs at 120 degrees shift. This will
allow me to connect the three sine wave outputs to a power stage and transformer in order to get high
power three phase.
Can it work by varying the capacitors? I can also see that the gains are different at each output so we
need to make them equal before feeding them to power stage. Could you please help with such design
Swagatam Majumdar

You will need three separate driver circuits for it, you may refer to the following article:

Hi sir i saw this circuit named Simple Pure Sine Wave Inverter Circuit - 500 Watt Pure Sine can this
circuit be use for all day? my second question is can i replace 2uf with 2n2 400v ( 2.2nf,) or can use
2.2/50v electrolytic cos 2uf cannot be found here i therefore cherish the hope that my question will meet

your kind consideration and approval thank you.

Swagatam Majumdar

December 21, 2013 at 11:10 AM

Hi Edward, yes the circuit can be used for all day long if appropriate heasinking are provided
to the devices.
2.2nF will not do, 2.2uF could work, but it's better to use a 2uF cap[, you can use two 1uF in
parallel for making a 2uF cap.

zinnaboy2 January 2, 2014 at 3:57 AM

to get 2uf or 1uf non poly,another question the second circuit 82pf also is very ok but sir
please i want you to help me in this circuit im not too much good in calculation so please don't
turn your back on me,in the first circuit can replace 104,103,102,the green one? or 2.2uf/25v
electrolytic cos sir in my country it difficultproblem can you tell me any value,3nd question all
the two circuit there is no pot i mean variable resister im just asking sir thank you im looking
forward to hear from you son. Simple Pure Sine Wave Inverter Circuit - 500 Watt Pure Sine

Swagatam Majumdar

January 2, 2014 at 8:37 PM

zinnaboy, you will have to make the circuit exactly as its presented, 2uF should be 2uF only,
any other value will not do, use two 1uF caps in parallel. This project is a difficult project and
is recommended for experts so please be cautioned.

zinnaboy2 January 3, 2014 at 4:12 AM

ok sir i understand but one thing is can 473nf or 104 the green cap be replace 82pf?
Swagatam Majumdar

January 3, 2014 at 12:38 PM

you cannot use other values in place of the recommended values, so please use only what's
recommended in the diagram.

Prasad Aithal January 6, 2014 at 8:12 PM

hai sir.i want to ask two questions
1)For this circute ,what happens if i connect 12v 50ah singal battery?
2)can i change step up transformer 12-012 10amps instad of 0-024v.if the center tap is connected to
12v 50 ah battery possitive?
Swagatam Majumdar

January 7, 2014 at 1:03 PM

Hi Prasad,
Single battery will not work because the above design uses a single winding push-pull
12-0-12v will work, keep the center taps shorted and unused and use 2nos 24v batts.
The above design is not a center tap type inverter so center tap cannot be used here.

biannz February 17, 2014 at 8:45 PM

sir please sorry for disturbing you ok,sir please can i replace 105/400vpp in place of 2uf,can 18pf be
replace 82pf?. sir i want to ask you that where is the red line of the first circuit connect to cos it seem
out put of the circuit is 2 out put? sir that is all my problem thank you.
Swagatam Majumdar

February 18, 2014 at 9:07 AM

NO, you will have to do everything as given in the circuit.

red line goes nowhere. the green output is to be used for feeding the inverter.

ok sir why im asking you is my country don't sell tantalum capacitor, sir plse what bout electrolytic
capacitor 1uf/25v can i add 2 in parallel to get 2uf electrolytic it is going to work?thank you,

February 19, 2014 at 9:00 PM

biannz, don't try this circuit it's strictly not recommended for the newcomers, there are other
simpler versions you can try them instead

biannz February 20, 2014 at 5:32 AM

ok sir but i have build some of your inverters circuit some of it work very well but it not a pure sine wave
so if you said i should not go for this i agree but i need a pure sine wave inverter circuit so please refer
me to which is not difficult i mean a pure sine wave ok sir even this circuit is not difficult build but some
of the pats is not available here in my country that is why i to confirm from you if i can use this blab-la i
guess your understand what i mean,thank you.
Swagatam Majumdar

February 20, 2014 at 11:49 AM

biannz, pure sine wave circuits are difficult and only recommended for expert hobbyists, if you
are confident you can go ahead wit the above circuit.
all pats should be exactly as given in the schematic, you cannot replace them with other
values, it will produce wrong results.


biannz February 20, 2014 at 9:39 PM

thank you sir,please there is resistor connected to emitter of BD140 it 1k resistor? sir im still confident
to build it i have all the pats except 82pf that is the only one i don't fine anywhere.
Swagatam Majumdar

February 21, 2014 at 12:44 PM

biannz, you can use 100pf or any other close value


biannz February 22, 2014 at 2:51 AM

ok sir thank you,my question is in the first circuit TL072 should i connects the positive of the batt to pin
8 of tlo72 and same to negative or it don't need any power from the batt it should build the way it
presented?thank you.
Swagatam Majumdar

February 22, 2014 at 1:42 PM

biannz, please check the datasheet of the IC and find out the Vdd(+) and Vss(-) pins of the

yes, you can use two 12v batteries and connect them as shown

biannz March 27, 2014 at 7:06 AM

sir thank you sir please my question is in the firs circuit you did not show the positive sign of the
capacitor i can see the 1k and the 2uf show negative so what about the tw0 cap 2uf on top of the circuit
it the green lines a positive?
another question can use the firs circuit to feed my four IRF540N in series with 56 ohm resistor to the G
will it be work? third question can you please upload the full circuit of the diagram? thank you for
spending your time on us we very greateful .
Swagatam Majumdar

March 27, 2014 at 5:39 PM

biannz, use non-polar capacitors for those. you can put two 1uF non-polar caps in parallel if
you are unable to get 2uF.

Swagatam Majumdar

March 27, 2014 at 5:40 PM

i did not understand your second question.

I have already shown the full diagram in the 1kva inverter article.

biannz March 28, 2014 at 3:33 AM

ok sir but sir the two IRF540n got hot why sir? can i use only N- channel in the circuit or the 0.22 ohm
resistor should change cos i suggest it becos of combination of the fets that why it got hot or my
suggest is wrong? second what volt should the output of the TL072 be
Swagatam Majumdar

March 29, 2014 at 10:27 AM

biannz, the mosfets should not become hot if the cirucit is built correctly.
take the help of an expert electronic engineer who can schematics well.
how can a n-channel work for p-channel?? think before you ask.
0.22 are in fact for safeguarding the devices, so they are definitely not causing the heating
issues, it's surely due to some hidden fault in your design.
dont worry about the TL072 output, first make sure the inveter devices remain cool on switch.

biannz April 1, 2014 at 6:29 AM

OK sir but it IRF9540N a p-channel? if it is p-channel then it should go to the positive connection
right,or no? thank you

the green output is the sine wave output, the red one is square wave.
No, you cannot use the sine output with any inverter's power stage...that will not yield
sinewave output...that's why only the above circuit has been recommended
