    Ok, I'm doing research for a boiler company...and electrical is my weak suit....the querry is as follows:

    What is the electrical consumption in KVA of the motor powered by a 3 phase, 460V supply and drawing 17amps constantly???

    If anyone knows the formula and willing the share it, that would be awesome...

    I figured it out... KVA= V x I x square root of 3 divided by 1000=13.544 KVA

    Treating us like idiots and trying to deceive people that you are asking for help from seldom goes well for long.
