    Is there any DC/AC inverter method that do not use big step up
    transformer?
    Regards,
     
  2. Sure, if Vout < Vin. OK, you can do a step-up inverter if you play games
    with switched capacitors, but for more than a watt or two, the transformer
    is probably cheaper if you want standard powerline frequencies.
     
  3. There are designs that step the voltage up at high
    frequency, so that a smaller transformer will carry the
    power, then that high frequency is rectified to DC and re
    inverted to a low frequency output, with no voltage change,
    so no transformer.

    thanks John.. do you know what is that method called? boost-buck ?
     
  5. Sorry, I don't know the technical terminology for this
    configuration.

    Damn! You almost got it set correctly!

    Do you have an obsession with seeing your posts at the top of a new
    header pull or something?
