I have an homework assignement that gives me an headache, I have a circuit with a
2000W heater with a all or nothing regulation using a thermostat
The heater is running 1/2 hour then stop for 1h from 6pm to 6am next day, so I calculated the duty cycle ratio (
(Time [s] powered + Time not powered) <=> (830)/((830)+(9*60)) which is 0.31.
I need to calculate the
mean instant power of that circuit, I went to the conclusion that this value would be
nominal power *
duty cycle ratio but I'm not sure at all of that
Am I right with my calculation?
