converting amps to kwh requires multiple equasions, for example i will show the process for converting the amps used by a 100 watt bulb in a 115/120 volt powered circuit.
E=IxR states that volts are equivilent to amps X watts
So inversly volts divided by watts = amps
in this case 120 volts divided by 100 watts =1.2 amps
that given and adding that kwh=1000 watts used for 1 hr
so inversly a 1.2 amp load used continuosly for 1 hr = 100watt hours or 0.10kwh
I want to know what my consumption of KWh is for a baler machine, this is the data:
208-230/460 (3 phase, 230v)
It depends on how many kilowatts it draws and how many hours it runs (just multiply them together).
In the electrical data, is there any mention of "power factor?" I ask because the numbers don't agree well. If it is 10 HP output, that is 7.46 kW output power. Since no machine is 100% rfficient, I would expect it to draw around 9-10 kW to out put that, based on typical efficiencies.
Edit: I started out assuming the 230 V was line to neutral. I'm pretty sure it is line to line, and needs to be divided by square root of 3.
If I multiply the volt*ampere rating, I get 3*230 V*26 A = 17940 VA = 17.94 kVA. However, if I assume the voltage is line-to-line and divide by the square root of 3, I get 10.4 kVA. If the power factor is close to 1, then it is also 10.4 kW. Just multiply by the hours runs for kilowatt*hours.
