The basis of this work is to provide electricity to villages and rural areas where there are fewer facilities for power transfer. The power transfer costs high which the rural area people cannot afford. To reduce this problem to some extent we can make use of renewable energy (solar energy). The solar panels produce DC power which we will convert to AC power using inverter operation. But present generation Inverters produce only square pulse or Sinusoidal wave with many harmonics and less efficient. This power may damage the inductor loads and reduce the efficiency. To overcome this problem lots of money needs to be invested which is not always affordable for the people who live in villages. In this work we are designing different inverters using with SG3525A PWM IC, ARDUINO for providing proper switching pulses to the MOSFETs to get maximum efficient output from inverter and this also helps in increasing the life cycle of the inverter. The cost of this inverter is less and the villagers can efficient make use of it for at least 20 years by installing this system
