I'm having a question whether i can give power to inverter using a PC power supply?
The Specification for the one i'm gonna use is provided below.
please advise me in this regard.
Expect the total power available from a modern pc psu's 12volt rail to be about 200watts. If you use that to power an inverter expect ~150-175 watts available at the output of the inverter. If your load exceeds 200watts the pc psu will probably shut down.
A 500w pc psu I randomly selected at newegg provides 12V@16A.
That is 192 watts.
Another option for a large inverter like this is a car battery or deep cycle battery.
