Due to the increasing demand of power usage nowadays, many kinds of power sources are available in the market. Usually these power sources are limited to indoor usage only. This will be a disadvantage for those with hobbies doing outdoor activities. The most important question is, "Are these power sources available in Alternating Current (AC)?" This is because most electrical equipment uses AC power to operate. The objective of this project is to design a new portable power kit that will supply an AC source by inverting a DC source from a battery as the main power source. To achieve the objectives of this study, information is gathered through internet, magazines, journal and etc. Followed by prototype model designing, testing and lastly finalizing the prototype. To do the prototyping successfully, a set of tools, equipment or software is needed in constructing the prototype. Pliers and hammer are examples of mechanical tools that will be used, whilst wire stripper and soldering iron are electrical tools needed to complete this project. PSPICE is used to simulate the circuit to make sure that there is no malfunction in the circuit. Before the completion of the hardware, the most important part is the circuit that will be used. Results from the simulation of the inverter circuit will be obtained. To support the need for this project, a set of questionnaire is distributed amongst colleagues and the general public residents. By knowing some feedback from the questionnaire subject, this portable power source can be built in the preferred feature such as low cost or lightweight. It is hoped that this project will achieve its objectives in providing an alternative source of energy especially for those who prefer outdoor activities.
