## How many kW is a ton of AC?

3.517 kW

Popular Answers (1) cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to 3.517 kW of power. =1.5*3.517/2.7=1.954 kW. AC consists of two units, Indoor unit which is called the evaporator and the Outdoor Unit which called the Compressor.

## How do you calculate kW per ton of cooling?

Electric motor driven chillers are rated in kilowatts per ton cooling.

- kW/ton = 12 / EER.
- kW/ton = 12 / (COP x 3.412)
- COP = EER / 3.412.
- COP = 12 / (kW/ton) / 3.412.
- EER = 12 / (kW/ton)
- EER = COP x 3.412.

**How do I convert kW to tons?**

We use a conversion factor of 3.5168 kW/Ton of cooling. The theory is below. Therefore, 1 Ton of cooling = (12,000 BTU/h)*(1 kWh)/(3412.142 BTU) = 3.5168 kW. So if you want to figure out how many Tons of cooling is required for x number of kW of power consumed [or heat generated], simply divide the total kW by 3.5168.

**What is cooling capacity in kW?**

The cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to 3.517 kilowatts of power. For 1.5 ton AC, the power consumption is the same as the cooling capacity. There was a value of 1.5* 3.517/2.954 kilowatts. The outdoor unit is called the Compressor while the indoor unit is called the Evaporator.

### What is the load of 1.5 ton AC in kW?

As a general rule of thumb, for AC power consumption calculation you should take, 1 ton of cooling = 1,000 watts. 1.5 ton of cooling = 1,500 watts.

### How many kW is a 3 ton AC?

If you have a 3-ton (30-Amp, 36,000 BTUs) air conditioner, you need at least a 14 KW generator. If you have a 4-ton (40-Amp, 48,000 BTUs) air conditioner, you need at least a 17 KW generator.

**How do I calculate tonnage of refrigeration?**

One ton of refrigeration is equal to 3024 kilo-calories per hour. This is 12,000 BTU/ h divided by 2.204 (pounds per kilogram) divided by 1.8 (°C to °F).

**How do you calculate chiller TR?**

Convert result into tons of chiller capacity. Divide Q (BTUs per hour) by 12,000 (the number of BTUs in one ton of cooling capacity). This yields the chiller capacity required to handle the process heat load in tons per hour: Example: 240,000/12,000= 20 tons/hr.

## What is a ton of cooling capacity?

12,000 BTU/hour

A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for “British Thermal Unit”. The BTU is a unit of heating or cooling energy. A window air conditioner is usually less than one ton.

## What is cooling capacity of 1.5 ton AC?

Cooling Capacity: Similarly, if we consider 1.5 Ton AC, the cooling capacity is 18000 BTU/hr, which means 5275 Watt approx.

**How many kW is a 2 ton AC unit?**

As a general rule of thumb, for AC power consumption calculation you should take, 1 ton of cooling = 1,000 watts. 1.5 ton of cooling = 1,500 watts. 2 ton of cooling = 2,00 watts.

**How many kW does a 2.5 ton AC use?**

The chart tells us that a 2.5 ton central AC uses 1.88 kWh of electricity each hour. This means that in one month, a 2.5 ton central AC uses 1350 kWh of electricity, and 2475 kWh per year.

### How many kW is a 3.5 ton AC unit?

A typical 2,000-square-foot house has a 3.5-ton air conditioner. This size of AC unit uses about 3,500 watts per hour when it’s in cooling mode. When a central air conditioner is running in the fan-only mode, it uses approximately 750 watts per hour.

### Can I use a 1.5 ton AC if my load is 2kW?

Yes, you can the 1.5 ton ac have about load rating varies from 1.4 KW to 1.65 KW depending on their star rating . You can use 1.5 Ton Ac with 2 KW sanctioned load.

**How many kW is a 2 ton air conditioner?**

**What does 1 ton of cooling mean?**

A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for “British Thermal Unit”. The BTU is a unit of heating or cooling energy. A window air conditioner is usually less than one ton.

## What is TR capacity?

A ton of refrigeration (TR) is a unit of heat extraction capacity of the refrigeration or cooling equipment. Generally, TR is defined as the amount of heat transferred to freeze or melt 1 short ton of ice at 0 deg. C in 24 hours. 1 TR is approximately equal to 12000 BTU or 3024 Kcal/hr of energy/heat load.

## What is the meaning of 1 TR?

1TR is amount of heat required to melt one tonne ice in 24 hrs and it is also equal to the 3.5kw and 210kj/min.
