## DC watts to amps calculation

The current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W), divided by the voltage V in volts (V):

I(A) = P(W) / V(V)

## AC single phase watts to amps calculation

The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W), divided by the power factor PF times the RMS voltage V in volts (V):

I(A) = P(W) / (PF × V(V))

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.

## AC three phase watts to amps calculation

#### Calculation with line to line voltage

The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W), divided by square root of 3 times the power factor PF times the line to line RMS voltage VL-L in volts (V):

I(A) = P(W) / (3 × PF × VL-L(V) )

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.

#### Calculation with line to neutral voltage

The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W), divided by 3 times the power factor PF times the line to neutral RMS voltage VL-N in volts (V):

I(A) = P(W) / (3 × PF × VL-N(V) )

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.
