An inverter can be defined as an electric power converter responsible for:
Every INVERTER is rated in VA and Volt. VA is the capacity of an INVERTER to run peak load and volt specifies the battery voltage for which the inverter is designed. The battery which is used in INVERTER application is lead acid battery with voltage in multiples of 12 Volt. Each lead acid battery has 6 cells of 2V each which gives the total voltage as 12V. Hence, a 12 Volt INVERTER means that it is designed to operate with 1 battery. A 24V inverter means that it is designed to operate with 2 lead acid batteries.
The primary job of inverter is to transform the DC power stored in the battery to AC power in order to run appliances during a power cut. The major difference between Sine and square wave inverter is in the output waveform received from the inverter. A square wave inverter produces an output that switches between positive, negative and zero volts whereas a sine wave inverter uses filtering to closely approximate a real sine wave which is similar to grid like electricity. Most of the household appliances are designed to work on sine wave which makes sine wave inverters safer than square wave. Also, sine wave inverters are reasonably quiet and no humming sound is observed from the connected load devices like fans, bulbs etc. However, sine wave inverters are little expensive than the square wave variants.
The best inverter for your house depends on your needs which may differ from one house hold to another.
Total load to be run on the inverter: As technology has improved, so have the inverters. These days, Inverters are not only capable to handle Fans, lighting and small appliances like TV but even larger appliances like Room Coolers, Refrigerators, Water purifiers, mixer grinders, electric iron, microwave and even air conditioners. Calculate the total load that you would like to run on the inverter at one time. You can refer to the Load calculator on the Luminous website to calculate the right inverter for your home.
Below are features available in the inverters these days.
LCD Display: Inverters with LCD display show the Backup time remaining in case of power cut and battery charging time in case when grid supply is normal. It helps user to plan activities efficiently and effectively. Zelio, Optimus and iCruze series are equipped with LCD displays.
Fast Battery charging: In areas where there are frequent power cuts, it becomes imperative for inverter to charge the battery faster so that maximum backup is available in the next outage. Shakti charge, Eco Volt neo and Eco watt Rapid are fast battery charging inverters
Smart and connected inverters: these inverters can easily connect to the smart phone via an application and share real time inverter battery performance statistics. Smart inverters are available in both Bluetooth and WiFi technology. Zelio –I and Zelio WiFi are smart inverters

Sine wave is an improved and advanced technology which supplies grid like power to your home during power outage which increases the performance and longevity of the connected devices. Square wave produced heat and humming sound which decreases the life of the connected devices. Sine wave inverters are recommended if users need to run sophisticated electronic appliances like TV, Refrigerator, mixer grinders etc.
In areas where there are frequent power cuts, it becomes imperative for inverter to charge the battery faster so that maximum backup is available in the next outage from the battery. In areas suffering from low input voltage, the charging current from inverter to battery decreases which causes extremely slow charging of the battery thereby increasing the total charging time of battery. Therefore, while buying inverters keep in mind the charging current at low input voltage and maximum charging current of the inverter. Shakti charg, Eco Volt neo and Eco watt Rapid are fast battery charging inverters
