    I need to wire up a standby inductor coil so I can heat it to keep moisture out of it.

    The only information I have is that my company runs two inductor coils in parallel. When running on high its at 171.2 AC Kilowatts, 560 volts, and has a power factor of 0.4. When running on low its at 35.7 AC Kilowatts, 560 volts, and has a power factor of 0.4.

    I will be hooking up the standby coil using a 14.5 KVA transformer that has tap settings of 320-600 volts.

    I need to know how much amps my inductor will draw so I can size my wire and fuses accordingly.

    Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, thank you very much!

    Even 1A at 560 volts will give a lot of heat! How large is the heat dissipation surface area and how far above ambient do you want to keep it, to drive off moisture?
