What is electrical load capacity and how is it calculated?
Electrical load capacity is the total amount of power that your main source of electricity provides for your home. To calculate electrical load capacity, follow the formula watts = amperage x volts.
What is the difference between single-phase and three-phase power?
Single-phase power features electrical flow through a single conductor. Single-phase power is more cost effective and capable of consistently powering smaller tools and equipment, while a three-phase system employs three separate conductors, ideal for large-scale, commercial or industrial applications.
What is power rating and how is it calculated?
A power rating is the highest power input allowed to flow through a particular piece of equipment. To calculate power rating, follow the formula P (power in watts) = l (current in amperes) x V (potential difference in volts) or P = E (energy transferred in joules) / T (time in seconds).
