Hi Pete, mfd was the OLD TERM. Now it is uf.
Yes that Capacitor Should be a 1 uf, Tantalum Cap.
Why are you building this Inverter? For What WATTAGE?
Modern Inverters use a High Frequency Switching Power supply, Making them MUCH SMALLER and Lighter in Weight. These are Not Practical for a Home Built Project, But they are usually not that expensive to just buy one.
