I am trying to figure the new wattage? Answered
hello, I built the ark welder from this instructable found athttps://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Microwave-Transformer-Homemade-Welder/
I'm trying to figure the new wattage I have two transformers
1: 650 watt MOT-primary at 120 volts 60 Hz 5.41 amps
secondary at 16.5 volts 39.36amps
2: 600 watt MOT primary @ 120v 60Hz 5 amps
secondary @ 16.5 volts 36 amps
the primaries are wired in parallel in the secondaries are in series. The secondaries test at 33 V and I'm guessing roughly 76 amps. I want to calculate the wattage. Is the wattage calculator from the voltage on the primaries (120+120)*76 or calculated from the voltage on the secondaries (16.5+16.5)*76 or am I a complete moron? Also the primaries are parallel are they both 120 V or are they 60 V each thanks in advance.
