Hi,

I would like to know the Kva for the following appliances.

4 freezers at 5 amps each

3 chiller units at 3 amps each

2 chillers at 35 amps each.

I do not know if they are resistive or conductive(if that is necessary

Would the answer be 99 * 240 /1000 = 23.76??

Hope you can help.

Confused

Notice that John write kVA as opposed to your Kva...John is right so write
the units that way.

Thanks for your help. You see, I have a shop and I am having a new
supply of electricity and I have beeen asked for kVA(now I know the
answer I can take it a stage further and contact an electrician to do
the necessary work)

The units should be written all upper case, KVA. The convention is that for
units above unity, the prefix is caps; e.g., K for Kilo, M for Mega, etc.
For units less than one, the convention is to use lower case; e.g., m for
milli, u (mu) for micro, etc.

Where did you get that information? Everything I see says that
anything < 1E6 is lower case, while anything >= 1e6 is upper case.

You are correct, I screwed up. I don't know where I got that idea.
