# Mismatch between Input Power and Output Power in a typical Power Supply

Here are the data attached on a Switching Mode Power Supply : Input : 230 V - 2.5 A PF = 0.95 ( Hence the power can be obtained as 230*2.5*0.95 = 546 W )

Output : 300 + 103 + 3.6 + 12.5 = 419.1 And at the line bellow the table it has mentioned 330 Watt as the Total wattage. How can this be possible ?

• Were you expecting 100% efficient power conversion? – MarkU Apr 10 '17 at 20:44
• That is a bit confusing as is though.. If you do the math for each voltage column you get 544.4w.. and what is total wattage.... You may need to look at the manual to figure out what combined and total really mean. – Trevor_G Apr 10 '17 at 20:50
• I would expect 80-90% and that still does not explain it. – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Apr 10 '17 at 20:50

• Were you expecting this 60% efficiency then, @MarkU, is that your cryptic point? – TonyM Apr 10 '17 at 21:05
