AC/DC Boiler Conversions and Calculations


Conversion Formulas

To Find Direct Current AC/1phase All Voltages AC/3phase All Voltages
Amps when HP is known (HP * 746)/(E * Eff) (HP * 746)/(E * Eff * PF)

(HP * 756)/(1.73 * E * Eff * PF)
Amps when KW is known (KW*1000)/E (KW * 1000) / (E * PF) (KW * 1000) / (1.73 * E * PF)
Amps when KVA is known N/A (KVA * 1000) / E (KVA * 1000) / (1.73 * E)
Kilowatts (I * E) / 1000 (I * E * PF) / 1000 (I * E * 1.73 * PF) / 1000
Kilovolt-Amps N/A (I * E)/ 1000 (I * E * 1.73) / 1000
Horsepower (I * E * Eff) /746) (I * E * Eff * PF)/746 (I * E * Eff * 1.73 * PF) / 746
