Power Inverter 60W 12V DC to 230V AC Using 2N3055

Power Inverter 60W 12V DC to 230V AC Using 2N3055 circuit diagram

This is low cost fully transistorised power inverter 60W circuit capable of driving medium loads of the order of 40 to 60 watts using battery of 12V, 15 Ah or higher capacity.

Transistors T1 and T2 (BC548) form a 50Hz multivibrator. For obtaining correct frequency, the values of resistors R3 and R4 may have to be changed after testing. The complementary outputs from collectors of transistors T1 and T2 are given to PNP darlington driver stages formed by transistor pairs T3-T4 and T6-T7 (utilising transistors BD140 and 2N6107). The outputs from the drivers are fed to transistors T5 and T8 (2N3055) connected for push-pull operation.

A 230V AC primary to 12V-0-12V, 4.5A secondary transformer (X1) is used. The centre-tapped terminal of the secondary of the transformer is connected to the battery (12V, 7Ah), while the other two terminals of the secondary are connected to the collectors of power transistors T7 and T8, respectively. When you power the circuit using switch S1, transformer X1 produces 230V AC at its primary terminal. This voltage can be used to heat your small electronic devices such as lamp, soldering iron, battery charger etc.

Somewhat higher wattage can be achieved by increasing the drive to 2N3055 transistors (by lowering the value of resistors R7 and R8 while increasing their wattage). Suitable heatsinks may be used for the output stage transistors. Transformer X1 is a 230V primary to 9V-0-9V, 10A secondary used in reverse.
