How to convert 4.37kW/24hour to power rating?

Postby ConfusedMe » Thu Jul 31, 2008 12:40 am

Hi, I am wondering if someone can help me convert 4.37kW/24 hours into a power rating? If I take 4.37/24 = 0.182kW/hr, will this be considered power rating? If I have an equipmenta that says energy consumption is 0.8kW, does that mean that it consumes 0.8kW of power every hour? Many thanks!

I think there may be some confusion between power, measured in kilowatts, and energy measured in kilowatt-hours. If something has a power rating of 0.8 kW, then it uses 0.8 kWh in an hour, 19.2 kWh in a day, and 134.4 kWh in a week, assuming it runs 24/7.
