In this tutorial, I will explain how to design and simulate a sine wave solar inverter in Proteus, using the 555 timer IC as the oscillator. Basically, we know that the 555 timer IC is used to generate a square wave oscillation, but in this tutorial, I will show you how you can tweak the circuit containing the 555 timer IC to obtain a sine wave, which you can in turn transform with a transformer to obtain your sine wave inverter.
You can watch the video of the simulation shown above.
The various components you need for the simulation and their values are given below.
555 timer X 1
10nF capacitor X 1
20uF capacitor X1
144uF capacitor X 1
1n4001 diode X 2
LED X 1
100Ω resistor X 3
80Ω resistor X 1
Solar panel X 1
Tip41 transistor X 1
Tip42 transistor X 1
12 to 220V step-up transformer
The solar panel Proteus library used in this simulation was downloaded from the engineering projects website: https://www.theengineeringprojects.com/
The circuit diagram of the simulation is shown below
