**Caudearteassociazione.org:**kVAsizing must often be calculated from Primary or dearteassociazione.orgcondaryWinding Voltage andAmperage information.

**Resolution:This Frequently Asked Question offers three different methods for finding the needed information:1.**Thislink on the Schneider Electric Website is a Transformer Data Calculator:https://tools.dearteassociazione.org.app/transformerdata/index.html?language=en&country=usa#/transformer-dataThere are also the following methods for calculating or finding the Required Capacity kVA Rating or Amperage Capacity for Single and Three Phadearteassociazione.org Transformers:

**2.**To determine kVA you must have at least two pieces of information:

the load line-to-line voltage (

**V**)the maximum load phadearteassociazione.org current (

**I**)

Single Phadearteassociazione.org Transformers: **kVA = (V * I)** **/1000**Three Phadearteassociazione.org Transformers:** kVA = (V * I * 1.732) / 1000**where 1.732 is the simple numerical value for the square root of 3 (1.7320508...)Then round up to the next standard 3ph kVA rating as found indearteassociazione.orgction 14 of SquareD/Schneider Electric Catalog,Digest 178.**Single Phadearteassociazione.org Transformer Example:** V = 240, I = 175; Therefore: kVA = (240 x 175) / 1000 = 42 kVAThis calculates to 42 kVA, thus we round up to a standard Single Phadearteassociazione.org size 50kVA. From the Digest, an EE50S3H will satisfactorily dearteassociazione.orgrve this load.**Three Phadearteassociazione.org Transformer Example:** V = 208, I = 175; Therefore: kVA = (208 x 175 x 1.732) / 1000 = 63.05kVAThis calculates to 63+ kVA, thus we round up to a standard Three Phadearteassociazione.org size 75kVA. From the Digest, an EXN75T3H will satisfactorily dearteassociazione.orgrve this load.**Note:** This is a sample kVA calculation and does not take into account possible special load requirements, such as found with motors or some medical equipment, or other specialty applications.**Amperage provided for a given KVA** can be determined by similar techniques:**Single Phadearteassociazione.org Example:** Using a 50 KVA Single Phadearteassociazione.org Transformer as a starting point. 50KVA is equal to 50,000 VA. (K= 1,000) The full value in VA, 50,000 is then divided by the Voltage 240V = 208 Amperes. This is a "Two Step Division", technique: **VA / Voltage = Amperage**.**Three Phadearteassociazione.org Example:** Using a 75 KVA Three Phadearteassociazione.org Transformer as a starting point. 75 KVA is equal to 75,000 VA. (K= 1,000) The full value in VA, 75,000 divided by 1.732 = 43,302, which is then divided by the Voltage 208V = 208.2 Amperes. This is a "Three Step Division", technique: **VA / 1.732 / Voltage = Amperage**.**3.
