Enter the total number of pulses and the total kilowatt-hours (kWh) into the Energy Meter Pulse Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Energy Meter Pulse. 

Energy Meter Pulse Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Energy Meter Pulse.

EMP = P / kWh


  • EMP is the Energy Meter Pulse (pulses/kWh)
  • #P is the total number of pulses 
  • kWH is the total kilowatt-hours (kWh) 

To calculate the energy meter pulse, divide the number of pulses by the total kilowatt-hours of power.

How to Calculate Energy Meter Pulse?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Energy Meter Pulse.

  1. First, determine the total number of pulses. 
  2. Next, determine the total kilowatt-hours (kWh). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = EMP = #P / kWh.
  4. Finally, calculate the Energy Meter Pulse.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total number of pulses = 300

total kilowatt-hours (kWh) = 20

EMP = #P / kWh = ?
