Answer / jim
A kWh is a measure of energy, whilst kW is a measure of
power. Power is the rate at which energy is used. The
difference between energy and power is like the difference
between distance and speed.

Answer / manoj s patil
Let us take an example,
if you say 1kW,the device consumes energy of 1kJ of energy at 1sec. this tells you the power consumption.
if you say 1kWh, this means, the energy consumption is 1*3600=3600kJ of energy. this only tells the total amount of energy consumed.
if your house electric bill says 100kWh/month, then it means to say that you have consumed 360000kJ of energy.

Answer / dev
Kw is capacity of plant which it generate in standard
concition or consuption capacity of equipmet which it
required. Kwh is use if kw in one hour eg. 1 machine of 1
kw is on for 1 hour then its rating is 1kwh.

HOW TO CUT A CAKE IN 8 PIECES IN 1 STROKE
Is a contactor (or master relay) required between incoming lines and a VFD? The question goes to safety. If a contactor were used before the VFD and an e-stop engaged then the motor will coast to a stop (i.e. VFD loses power) instead of stopping much faster if the VFD braking fucntion were used. It would make more sense to keep power on the VFD.
What is the difference between ohmic resistance and effective resistance?
my question is that....few days ago i had installed a three phase motor starter for an electric saw.the motor will run and make the hydraulic pressure which will be goes to pressure cylender by up and down lever.two number of limitswitches are also installed on cylinder for safety of motor.now when the arm of cylinder reaches to the upper or lower limit it will cut the motor's line.and motor will be stop.now wana know that what will i do that motor runs continue after the limitswitch cut it down but it shold not be made any pressure.pls answer me in brief.
What are the uses of stepper motor?
