# Your question: How many amps is a 50VA transformer?

Contents

## 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 you convert MVA to amps?

Calculate 3 phase amps, or “I”, using the formula: I = (MVA x 1,000, 000)/(Vphase x 1.732). The 1,000,000 represents “mega” where 1 megavolt is 1,000,000 volts. Continuing with the example: I = (25 x 1,000,000)/(4,000 x 1.732) = 25,000,000/6,928 = 3608.5 amps.

## How many amps does a 25 kVA transformer?

Three Phase Transformer

KVA 208V 480V
20 56.6 24.1
25 69.5 30.1
30 83.4 36.1
37.5 104 45.2

## 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.

## What does 50va mean?

50 VA means that it can supply 50 volt-amps. At 24 V secondary that means it can supply a little over 2 A. (2 A x 24 V = 48 VA.)

## Can I replace a 20va transformer with a 40va transformer?

The VA designation refers to the wattage that the transformer can handle. 40va would be twice the wattage of 20va transformer. As long as the voltage output is the same as the transformer you have you can go with a 40va unit.

## How many amps is a 250va transformer good for?

250 VA ÷ 24 volts = 10.41 amp

so this circuit would be fused with a 10 amp maximum fuse. Conversely, if you know the actual LOAD on the transformer in amperes or the existing fuse size, the you can calculate the VA rating for the voltage so you can properly replace a transformer.

## How do you calculate volt amps on a transformer?

To determine the required transformer VA, multiply the secondary voltage by the required amperes: For example, VA=Volts x Amperes or 28V x 1.2 amperes = 33.6 VA. To determine the maximum transformer current, divide the transformer VA by transformer secondary voltage.

## Is MVA equal to MW?

In short, a power plant rating is specified in terms of prime mover /Turbine (Turbine rating may be seen by nameplate rating which is in MW or Horsepower (HP) not in MVA) and not by the alternator set coupled to it. … Moreover, in power plant, power factor is 1 therefore MW is equal to MVA …… (MW = MVA x P.f).
