Are the invertors used in our houses are a type of capacitors?

Expert Answer:

Appliances in our homes work on a.c. power. During a power failure, an inverter is used to run the appliances.
Inverter is a circuit containing battery, transformer and switch and it converts the d.c. into a.c.
Hence, inverter is just a battery and not a type of capacitor as capacitors store charge and inverter does not.
