What is an Invertor Generator: Why Would you Choose One

Inverter generators produce electricity in a different way to conventional generators, and they have some specific advantages.
Let’s take a look at how inverter generators work, how they differ to conventional generators, what they can be used for and why you might choose one.

What is an Inverter Generator and How do they work?

Inverter generator produce electricity in a ‘pure sine wave’ format – that is, in continuous smooth waves. Conventional generator technology delivers power in choppier square waves.
Inverter generators produce power in three stages – high-frequency AC (alternating current), DC (direct current) and stable AC. This differs from standard conventional generators, which only produce AC electricity.
Conventional portable generators deliver higher output than the inverter types. However, the result you get from inverter technology is a cleaner power delivery that adjusts up and down according to load, with minimal harmonic distortion.
This makes inverter generators very suitable for sensitive devices like mobile phones, LED televisions, audio equipment and laptops, as they prevent overheating and overload.
The lower output of inverter generators can also be doubled by connecting two generators through a parallel connection.

The main difference between a generator and an inverter

When compared to conventional portable generators, inverter units provide the following benefits:

  • Less distortion due to cleaner voltage.
  • Greater fuel efficiency due to lower fuel requirements.
  • Lower carbon emissions, making them more eco-friendly.
  • Smaller size and lighter weight, making them easy to transport.
  • Quieter operation.

In terms of purchase cost, inverter generators tend to be pricier than conventional ones in the same power range, due to their more complex technology.
However, this can be offset by their lower operating costs and other benefits.

When would you use an inverter generator?

Inverter generators are often a popular choice for situations where power requirements are relatively low (e.g. compared to a full-size house) and where quiet operation and portability are important.

This means that as well as being great for recharging your laptop or phone, an inverter generator might be suitable for:

  • camping trips
  • fishing trips
  • outdoor adventures
  • running caravan air conditioning
  • for us in the home to keep things ticking over during a temporary blackout
  • as a power source for a mobile food or coffee business
  • or to power outdoor lighting for a garden party.

Needless to say, there are many use cases for an inverter generator both for recreation and home or trade use.

Inverter generators can be useful during a grid-power planned or unplanned outage – especially if you live in an area prone to regular blackouts.

What size inverter generator do you need?

There are several steps to consider for this:

  • Look up the power needs of the appliances you want to run, including how much they need to start up. In many cases, wattages of both will be the same, but it will differ for items with a heat element or motor (e.g. air conditioners, hair dryers, fridges, toasters, coffee machines and electric tools). Some of these items can have up to four times the power requirement to start up as they do for continuous running.
  • If you are going to be running several appliances at once, add up the power requirements of each to arrive at a total. This will enable you to get a generator with the right capacity for your needs. Let’s say you are going on a camping trip and you want to be able to run a camp fridge, laptop, recreational air conditioner, TV and coffee machine – possibly at the same time on occasion. In this case, you will likely need a 2,000 to 3,000-watt inverter generator capacity to allow for start-up and running.
