Good day, I am wondering if it's possible to estimate the continuous current consumption of a DC motor vs startup or rated current.
I am trying to put together a solar powered aquaponics system. The system would have one water pump that is rated at 24V/250W and two air pumps rated at 12V/80A. Obviously head height comes into play for a specific estimate but I would be happy with a general rule of thumb or a rough estimate of what my continuous power consumption would likely be.
I suspect these ratings are maximum or startup and the continuous wattage would be considerably lower?
