Somebody smarter than me please tell me what 1kW DC equals for AC?

Thanks in advance.....

What are you trying to do?

What is the conversion device? DC to AC conversion as measured in KW is dependent on the losses in the device used to convert the energy.

Tell me more...

PM at you. The inverter is 96% efficient!

More details, please.

Knowing the power and voltage will allow the current to be derived.

ex., 1KW@12DVC=83.33A and if you're inverting to 120VAC, it should be about 8.3A(.96)=8A

What, exactly, are you trying to do?

I'm confused, too. Post reminds me of my Power Electronics classes nearly 20 years ago. AC-Dc Converters/ DC-AC inverters.

I'm not confused, AC/DC rocked even back then, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwxJ46HWXbA !:rolleyes:

Yes, Juan is John. How do you say 'Daniel' in Spanish?

RE: 'puto/puta'- we have a morning radio show and one of the frequent guests is a firefighter, who's also married to a part-time news girl. He was describing an incident where they were called to a house, where a young woman was in big-time labor. They were all speaking Spanish, not English, so one of the paramedics thought he could help. They were trying to instruct her to push, so he started yelling, "Puta! Puta!". Her mother started crying and carrying on, she was shocked and nobody who was there to help knew why. They eventually learned that he should have been yelling Puja! Puja!, which means 'push' and he was caught off guard when he found out that by yelling Puta!, he had been calling her a whore.
