## 220 v rms

It is RMS ..

If you would like to read more on this issue, here is a link:

## 220v rms?

It is in RMS... same as 110V in power lines

## relation between rms and peak

moreover .why it should be RMS ....why should not as +340V,-340V while referring

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)

If they do, you can see the notice "True RMS" somewhere on the device and such a device is also appropriately more expensive (it requires a built-in rms converter). Other devices usually measure peak or mean value of a rectified waveform and take advantage of the fact that the relations between peak/mean and rms (root mean square) values for a known waveform, in this case**sine wave**, are constants so that they can recalculate it and display. This fact implies that such a device displays the more inaccurate value (sometimes really nonsens) the more the measured waveform "differs" from sine wave.

For instance waveforms in circuits with a phase controlled SCR (thyristor or triac) give quite big errors measured with non-true rms devices.

Just for interest, the mentioned values are defined as follows:

For periodic waveforms v(t):

mean value =

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

## relation between rms and peak value

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.........
