220v rms?
It is in RMS... same as 110V in power lines

Referring to the peak value (only for sine waveforms!!!) power would be calculated:
P = Vpeak * Ipeak / 2 (or P = Vrms*Vrms/(2*Rload), or P = Irms*Irms*Rload/2)
It allows to compare or evaluate "power contents" of different waveforms in a way, while its peak values don't give any information as to this point.

rms 220v
Try to grab a Digital Multimeter (select it as to measure AC voltage with range of at least higher on what you are expected to measure) Now read the Meter, it should read 220V (note all meter device should read RMS values)

rms value = ,
where T is the time period.
Sine wave:
If v(t) = M×sin(ωt),
where M ... peak value of the sine wave,
ω = =  ... circular frequency, we obtain:
mean value = 0
if fully rectified, then
mean value = = 0.637M ... relation between mean (fully rectified) and peak value
rms value = = 0.707M ... relation between rms and peak value
rms/mean (fully rect.) = = 0.707/0.637 = 1.11 ... relation between rms and mean value of fully rectified sine wave

220 is rms.peak voltage is 1.4*220=308v

i rms i peak
it is exaclty rms (root mean square) and it peak voltage is √2×220 (v).

it(rms) scr calculation
Are you collecting points or what?
STOP these stupid messages, everybody already KNOWS it is rms!!!

calculate 220 rms peak value
if its a sine wave its rms value..
if its a nonsinusoidal wave it wont be RMS...any way becoz every wave can be converted as composition of sine wave there is a true rms meter which gives rms for any wave..gen all ac and dc volts xpressed in rms ..

220v rms peak
It is RMS, the peak voltage is RMS * sqare root o f2, say about 310 V.
The multimeters ( low price ) usually rectify the voltage ( taking the peak voltage ) and then they divide it by SQRT of 2.

p=vrms*irms
It's RMS!
Low price multimeters aren't True RMS, but if the signal you are messuring it's a Sine Wave there's no problem!! If not, the values shown would not be correct.........
