You shouldn't really have much voltage "drop". If you do, it usually means that there is a poor connection somewhere along your service line or inside wiring. Any significant amount of voltage drop can mean that you are at risk of a fire. On the other hand, line voltage into a house may not actually be 240 VAC. Measure the ACTUAL voltage with everything turned off, then see where it goes when you start turning things back on. The difference between the supplied voltage and the load voltage is the voltage "drop".

How many amps in 1000 watt at 240 volts?

The basic formula for the Voltage, Current, Power relationship is P=I*E. To find one when the other two are known, simply fill in the two you know and solve. In this case P=1000W and Voltage = 240V (It is important that you pay attention to the unit definer here, if it were 240 mV, you would have Voltage = .240V and so on). 1000W = I * 240V I = 1000W/240V I = 4.17A

A transformer has primary voltage of 240v and a secondary voltage of 48v what is the turns ratio of this transformer?


600 watts requires how many amps?

It depends on the voltage source. watts = voltage * voltage / resistance and amps = voltage / resistance example 1: To produce 600W from a 120V source, you need a resistor of size 120V*120V/600W = 24 Ohm. This would pull 120V/24 Ohm = 5 amps. example 2: To produce 600W from a 240V source, you need a resistor of size 240V*240V/600W = 96 Ohm. This would pull 240V/96 Ohm = 2.5 amps.

Why the voltage between phase to neutral is 240v compared to phase to phase is 415v?

This is a three phase four wire system. The three phase voltage is 415 volts. To find the star point voltage divide 415 x 1.73 = 239.8 or 240 volts.

Can you replace the 240v plug on my 240v mitre saw with a 110v plug and run it off a 110v transformer?

Changing the plug will not change the power needed to run the saw. If the saw has a dual voltage motor then a wiring change can be done to switch the saw from 240 to 110 volts. If it is not a dual voltage system then the saw must be fed with 220 volts.
