    I would like to know the Kva for the following appliances.

    4 freezers at 5 amps each

    3 chiller units at 3 amps each

    2 chillers at 35 amps each.

    I do not know if they are resistive or conductive(if that is necessary
    for the answer)

    Would the answer be 79 * 240 /1000 = 18.96??

    Hope you can help.

    If all you appliances are running off of 240 you're almost correct...
    you for got to add in the 4 freezers so add 20 more amps and you should
    come up with 23.76kVA

    That is an upper limit - assuming all are running at the currents given and
    all are at the same power factor.[/QUOTE]
