Abstract: As natural resources are depleting on planet earth, the increase in demand for renewable energy resources is high. Households system will be a good area to research on in the saturated commercial market. The efficiency of electricity and maintaining a constant supply voltage is a concern here. Sine wave inverters that make use of Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation Technique are used here. With the use of suitable filters, sine waves with little harmonics were produced. A DC to DC Boost Converter circuit was built to replace the inability of transformer to step up low voltages to the required amount. To maintain the AC output voltage at the inverter, a feedback system was built to adjust the Boost converter accordingly.
