Definitions for "Pulse width modulation"
Keywords:  pwm, sine, width, waveform, duty
A type of inverter which takes the DC current from the rectifier and switches it on and off very quickly, approximating a sine wave.
A powerful technique for controlling analog circuits with a processor's digital outputs. PWM is employed in a wide variety of applications, including high power switching amplifiers. By controlling analog circuits digitally, system costs and power consumption can be drastically reduced.
A type of chopped DC power where the width of the pulse is varied to control the average voltage (see "chopped DC power").
