How much kva i have to mention in the application
We are planning to start a factory.
We will have machines which require 2.2kw to 90kw.
If I total the kw it comes to 350kw.
But how much KVA I have to mention in the application to the govt. authorities?
Here they charge $160/kva as fee for the connection only, and non-refundable.
So please help me in finding the minimum KVA I have to mention in the application.
Also is there any calculation behind finding this info
Your help is highly appreciated
The answer is not simple as it depends if your running all machines flat out every hour all day, all week or each machine is used for part of the day etc. best to hire an electrical consultant designer to come and take a look and work it out properly, its no good guessing the numbers.
