How do you tell how many amps a transformer is?
If for some reason you need a larger transformer to operate appliances, you still divide the wattage by the voltage to find the current. For a 120-volt primary, 2000-watt transformer, divide 2000 by 120 for the current (2000 Watts /120 volts =16.67 amps). For a 240-volt, 3000-watt transformer, the current is 12.5 amps.
How do I convert kVA to amps?
Calculation with line to line voltage
- S(kVA) = √3 × I(A) × VL-L(V) / 1000.
- So kilovolt-amps are equal to √3 times amps times volts divided by 1000.
- kilovolt-amps = √3 × amps × volts / 1000.
- kVA = √3 × A ⋅ V / 1000.
- S = √3 × 12A × 190V / 1000 = 3.949kVA.
How many amps is a 25 kVA transformer?
Three Phase Transformer
What is the rated current of a transformer?
A transformer with a 100 VA rating, for instance, can handle 100 volts at one ampere (amp) of current. The kVA unit represents kilovolt-amperes, or 1,000 volt-amperes. A transformer with a 1.0 kVA rating is the same as a transformer with a 1,000 VA rating and can handle 100 volts at 10 amps of current.
How many amps is 30kva?

|How many amps is 5 kVA?||220 V||22.73 Amps|
|How many amps is 10 kVA?||220 V||45.45 Amps|
|How many amps is 20 kVA?||220 V||90.91 Amps|
|How many amps is 30 kVA?||220 V||136.36 Amps|
How many amps is 3kVA?
KVA is equal to the square root of 3 (1.732) times amps times volts, divided by 1,000. Amps is the flow of electricity as an electrical current.

What size breaker do I need for a 75 kva transformer?
The rated current of the transformer can be used as the basis for a breaker. The rated current of a 3 phase, 75 kva transformer is 112 Amps, which is 25% of the rated current of a 125 Amp breaker.
What size transformer do I need for a 100 amp service?
It’s very common to see a 100 amp breaker in a 480 panel feeding a 75 KVA transformer and a 225 amp main in the 120/208 panel. Just a short note here, the 480 side needs 3 wires and a ground, no neutral. The 120/208 side will need 4 wires and a ground. All grounds tie together.
What size breaker do I need for a 45 kVA transformer?
For a 45kVA transformer, 125A×1.25=156A, so use a 175A protection device.
