COMPARISION

• Let us take 4mm arc welding electrode is being used


• It requires 160A welding current at approximately 24V
• Output power = 160 A X 24 V = 3840 W or 3.840 KW
• Input voltage is 230V AC in the case of single phase and 415V AC in the case of three phase input power supply. While
comparing in an actual measurements the input voltage and output voltage has to accurately measured.
