## Peak Envelope Power (PEP) Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Peak Envelope Power (PEP).

PEP = V^2 / 2/ R

- Where PEP is the Peak Envelope Power (PEP) (watts)
- V is the peak voltage (volts)
- R is the resistance (ohms)

To calculate peak envelope power, square the peak voltage, then divide by 2 times the resistance.

## How to Calculate Peak Envelope Power (PEP)?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Peak Envelope Power (PEP).

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the peak voltage (volts). In this example, the peak voltage (volts) is measured to be 300.
- Next, determine the resistance (ohms). For this problem, the resistance (ohms) is calculated to be 20.
- Finally, calculate the Peak Envelope Power (PEP) using the formula above:

PEP = V^2 / 2/ R

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

PEP = 300^2 / 2/ 20 = 2250 (watts)

**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 voltage (volts) = 400

resistance (ohms) = 10

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

PEP = V^2 / 2/ R = 8000 (watts)
