DC-AC inverters are electronic devices used to produce mains voltage AC power from low voltage DC energy sources such as from a battery or solar panel.

Most inverters do their job by performing two main functions: first they convert the incoming DC into AC, and then they step up the resulting AC to mains voltage level using a transformer.

The goal is to have the inverter perform these functions as efficiently as possible so that as much as possible of the energy drawn from the battery is converted into mains voltage AC, and as little as possible is wasted as heat.
