What is the nominal voltage of a 150 kW 480 v generator?
Whoa, this is a serious motor! The generator needed would cost in the neighborhood of $50,000.00 US, would require permits to install and run, and would require professi…onal installation. Check your telephone directory for generators. 270v is an unusual number in the US, what country are you in? Curiously, if this is a 3-phase motor, your numbers don't add up. 270v at 200a is only about 93kw of electrical comsumption, this motor would not be able to produce 185kw of output.
The word nominal means the lowest possible safe amount. So, nominal current or nominal voltage is the lowest amount necessary to perform an electrical function like keepin…g a light turned on. Answer The original answer is incorrect. 'Nominal' simply means 'named'. So a 'nominal voltage' is the 'named voltage', as opposed to an 'actual voltage'. For example, the nominal voltage of residential supplies in the UK is 230 V; however, this value is allowed to vary between +10/-6% of the nominal voltage. In other words, a nominal voltage of 230 V may vary between 216 V and 253 V.
It is a rated value
The power consumption of the motor cannot be determined without more information. The power consumption of any load can be determined with any two of three interrelated …parameters--voltage, current, or load impedance. (Ohm's Law)
It is the rated voltage of an electric equipment. It is the voltage at which the device is designed to operate. Another Answer Nominal means 'named'. So a nominal voltage is …the 'named' voltage. For example, the nominal voltage of the supply system in Britain is 230 V. But its actual value is allowed to vary between 216.2 V and 253.0 V.
The common factors of 150 and 480 are: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, and 30
If they are at the same voltage, and the same kW, the only thing left that will influence the output amperage is the power factor the generator is running at.
A Caterpillar 150 kilowatts SR for generator ways approximately 800 pounds without fluids. The generator will weigh over 1000 pounds with fluids.
% rate = 150/480 * 100% = 31.25%
When people talk about 480V systems, they mean 480 is the RMS voltage.
First of all, a 150 HP 460V 3-phase motor only draws around 170A, so two of them would only draw 340A, not 800. 340A at 460V equals almost 300,000 watts (or 300kw), and the ge…nerator would need to be sized a little bigger than this to start such big motors.
The 24v battery is used to provide the initial field current. This couples to the stator windings, and as the generator spins induces a voltage on the stator windings, which c…auses back EMF onto the field windings (when load is present), which slows the generator's spin until the governor kicks in to bring it back up to speed. The important thing to note is the output power of the generator is not a factor of the 24v field voltage, it is directly dependent upon the fuel being used to get the generator spinning. The 24 volts just "jump starts" the field voltage. Think of it as synonymous with the 12 volt battery that starts your car.
The Least Common Multiple (LCM) for 150 480 is 2,400.
What is the true power when using a V supply voltage and a kW heating element with a voltage rating of V?
True power is expressed in watts, so the true power of your heater is its kilowatt rating at its rated voltage. Variations in voltage will result in variations in its power. A…ssuming its resistance remains roughly constant for variations in temperature, then True Power = V2/R.
