If you perform a search in the internet you'll find some examples for Backup & Restore SQL Server databases with powershell even I thing this will be more easily done with SQLCMD.

I just recently started getting into powershell, and, I love the power it brings to the table. So I was curious to a backup example in powershell for SQL DB.
