12V Inverter Circuit Using 4013

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

This circuit is a circuit diagram 12V inverter is very easy to build, cheap components that many electronics hobbyists may even already have. Though it is possible to build a more powerful circuit, the complexity caused by the very heavy currents to be handled on the low-voltage side leads to circuits. The circuit diagram of 12v inverter is easy t

o follow. A classic 555 timer chip, identified as IC1, is configured as an astable multivibrator at a frequency close to 100 Hz, which can be adjusted accurately by means of potentiometer P1. It is used to drive a D type flip-flop produced using a CMOS type 4013 IC. This produces perfect complementary squarewave signals (in antiphase) on its Q and Q outputs suitable for driving the output power transistors. The following is a schematic drawing: As the output current available from the CMOS 4013 is very small, Darlington power transistors are used to arrive at the necessary output current. We have chosen MJ3001s from the now defunct Motorola (only as a semi-conductor manufacturer, of course!) which are cheap and readily available, but any equivalent powerDarlington could be used. These drive a 230 V to 2 G— 9 V centre tapped transformer used backwards` to produce the 230 V output. The presence of the 230 VAC voltage is indicated by a neon light, while a VDR (voltage dependent resistor) type S10K250 or S07K250 clips off the spikes and surges that may appear at the transistor switching points.
