## Compressor Energy Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Compressor Energy.

**Ec = CP * T * 60**

Variables:

- Where Ec is the Compressor Energy (Joules)
- CP is the compressor power usage (watts)
- T is the time of usage (min)

## How to Calculate Compressor Energy?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the Compressor Energy.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the compressor power usage (watts). In this example, the compressor power usage (watts) is measured to be 58.
- Next, determine the time of usage (min). For this problem, the time of usage (min) is calculated to be 49.
- Finally, calculate the Compressor Energy using the formula above:

Ec = CP * T * 60 = (Joules)

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

Ec = 58 * 49 * 60 = 170,520 J

**Example Problem #2: **

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

compressor power usage (watts) = 4

time of usage (min) = 56

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

Ec = 4 * 56 * 60 = 13,440** **(Joules)
