## Average Current Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Average Current.

Iave = Ip * .636

- Where Iave is the Average Current (amps)
- Ip is the peak current (amps)

To calculate average current, multiply the peak current by .636.

## How to Calculate Average Current?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Average Current.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the peak current (amps). In this example, the peak current (amps) is measured to be 115.
- Finally, calculate the Average Current using the formula above:

Iave = Ip * .636

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Iave = 115* .636 = 73.14 (amps)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

peak current (amps) = 251

Entering these values into the formula above gives :

Iave = 251 * .636 = 159.63 (amps)
