## Coil Voltage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Coil Voltage.

CV = TV / CW

Variables:

- Where CV is the Coil Voltage (Volts/winding)
- TV is the total voltage (volts)
- CW is the number of coil windings

To calculate the coil voltage, divide the total voltage by the number of coil windings.

## How to Calculate Coil Voltage?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Coil Voltage.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total voltage (volts). In this example, the total voltage (volts) is measured to be 50.
- Next, determine the number of coil windings. For this problem, the number of coil windings is calculated to be 3.
- Finally, calculate the Coil Voltage using the formula above:

CV = TV / #CW

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

CV = 50 / 3 = 16.667 (Volts/winding)

**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:

total voltage (volts) = 400

number of coil windings = 100

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

CV = 400 /100** = **(Volts/winding)
