The effect of load variation on 1.4kVA, 2-l/220volts, 50Hz, single phase inverter is presented in this work. The inverter is fed from a 120A-H, 24 volts battery to produce a 220volts, 50 Hz to power alternating current loads. The no-load voltage was recorded to be 24volts. Eight, 200watts .filament bulbs were used as loads in this experiment. The load was varied in step increment of 200watts by bulb addition. As the load increases, the load current and voltage and terminal voltage of the battery were recorded. The plot of the load versus the terminal voltage of the battery revealed step differential and that a linear relationship exist between the current and the applied load. The higher the load, the more the current drawn, hence the extent of continuity of supply depends on the ampere-hour rating of the battery and  the amount of current drawn by the load. The results will assist individuals using stand alone inverter based power converter and electrical power systems operators in a co-generation configuration involving inverters.
