how to convert amps into kwh usage
i need to convert ampere of usage into kwh

Re: how to convert amps into kwh usage
an ampere is an instantaneous measurement, while KWH is a measurement of watts (in this case, kilowatts) over time. it's like converting linear feet to cubic feet, you just can't do it

Re: how to convert amps into kwh usage
converting amps to kwh requires multiple equasions, for example i will show the process for converting the amps used by a 100 watt bulb in a 115/120 volt powered circuit.
E=IxR states that volts are equivilent to amps X watts So inversly volts divided by watts = amps in this case 120 volts divided by 100 watts =1.2 amps that given and adding that kwh=1000 watts used for 1 hr so inversly a 1.2 amp load used continuosly for 1 hr = 100watt hours or 0.10kwh I hope that helps

Therefore it uses 0.564 kWh/h. Multiply by hours operated and you will have your answer.

ampskwh
if i reduce the amps rate by an energy saver will kwh will reduce

If you reduce the amps, the energy consumed will be less UNLESS it runs longer (for example, something controlled by a thermostat that runs until it reaches a temperature.) Picky note: above is only correct if current is in phase with voltage and constant. If current varies or turns on and off with a switch (thermostat) it is a little more complex.
