WATTAGE REQUIREMENT CALCULATOR

Fill in the boxes as shown below.

Check Items: Mark the items you want to power by clicking in the check box next to each item.
Mark Quantity: If there is more then one unit of an item, type the number into the Quantity Box.
Volts: Select the voltage used for each item. To set all the items in the group to same voltage, use Set all at the top of the column.
Phase: Select the phase used for each item. To set all the items in the group to same phase, use Set all at the top of the column.
Running Amps: If you know the running amps, and it is different than the "typical" value type the number in the box. Watts running and starting will be calculated based on the voltage you selected.
Running Wattage: If you do not know the actual running and watts leave the "Specific" box blank and the "Typical Wattage" will be used. If you do know the specific wattage type the wattage into the "Specific" box for that item.
Starting Wattage: If you do not know the actual starting and watts leave the "Specific" box blank and the "Typical Wattage" will be used. If you do know the specific wattage type the wattage into the "Specific" box for that item. Starting wattage must be equal to or larger than running amperage or will be ignored.
kW / kVA: This is the minimum size of the generator for this item. Totals are shown at the bottom of the page.
