# calculation of energy consumption in a feedmill

## calculation of energy consumption in a feedmill

(OP)
Hi everyone, i need some help to calculate some mill efficiency parameters
for instance the energy consumption in a feedmill for a 3 phase generator , by knowing the Pellet ampere value.

given the value that i know
Pellet AMP = 14.04
throughput of 15.22 MT per hour
what is the Energy consumption per KwH/MT?

thank you so much?

what is the formula i can use in excel to calculate it?
thanks

### RE: calculation of energy consumption in a feedmill

I don't think you are providing the needed parameters. Do some more research, call some vendors, look for data presented like the following table.

### RE: calculation of energy consumption in a feedmill

If it takes 14A produce one (1) pellet then it must be a very short time and likely many pellets at the same time sharing the same current.

In order to compute energy per Pellet you must know the Watt-second product or voltage-amp-second product and assuming all 3 phases are balanced and averaged over time.

In order to compute energy density , you must know pellet density per tonne

Also its kWh / tonne not KwH/MT (only namesake abbreviations are capitalized on their own W=Watt)
Mt = megatonne MT is not the official abbrv for metric tonne , it's actually Mg, megagram
