What's an Inverter Generator?
Simply put, an inverter generator produces 3-phase AC power at a high frequency, which is electronically 'converted' to DC power, then 'inverted' back to AC at 120 volts, 60hz. This output is referred to as 'clean power' which means consistent current and a stable 'sine wave' that is the basis for AC or 'alternating current'. Conventional generators must maintain an exact speed to produce standard 60hz (cycles per second), and this speed can vary as additional loads are applied or removed. If the lights or other basic appliances in your home were being powered by a generator and there was a fluctuation in the AC power, you'd probably see the lights dim and then return to full brightness?no problem! However, if your computer was being powered by a generator and the voltage fluctuated, chances are the computer would either shut down or at least interrupt the program you were working in. Therefore the 'clean power' from an inverter generator is a great benefit for the operation of computers and other hi-tech equipment.
