Calculator | AC to DC Amperage Conversion Calculator using a DC to AC Power Inverter
Welcome to our AC to DC Amperage conversion calculator! So, you’ve got an electrical household device you need to run but no regular grid power available, right? For this you need a DC to AC Power Inverter that takes the DC voltage a battery provides and inverts it to AC voltage so that you can run an AC Powered Device. (Not to be confused with a converter, which takes AC to a DC.)
The first step to sizing the battery pack when using a DC to AC Power Inverter is to know your DC Amp rating. This calculator helps you determine the DC amperage as it passes through a power inverter. The calculator also provides the wattage rating you are pulling so you can properly size the power inverter you need!
Just enter your AC Voltage and AC Amperage into the fields below and we will do all the hard calculations for you. This calculator includes the typical inefficiencies in efforts to give you realistic DC Amperage Rating.
There is a solar article that goes well in depth on these calculations if you’re interested in the techie type stuff: Solar Info: The Down Low on Everything Up High
