    Pls someone answer, is it possible to convert the 220v output of a square wave inverter to sine wave?

    It is backwards to try to convert a powerful square-wave into a sine-wave. The filter inductors and capacitors will be huge, expensive and will waste a lot of power.

    Modern sine-wave inverters use Pulse-Width-Modulation with a very high switching frequency to produce a chopped sine-wave then the high frequency pulses are smoothed together with a small filter to produce a smooth powerful sine-wave.

    This is a fated thread; it will survive anything: hijacking, derailing, nonsense.
