Hello,

We have a 115VAC supply going to two 24DC supplies. One 24DC supply is 1A and the other is 2.1A. How do I figure out the total alternating current going from the 115VAC supply to the two parallel connected 24DC supplies? It can't be as simple as just adding the currents of the DC supplies (1+2.1=3.1A), or can it? Is there a square root of 3 calculation in there somewhere?

I understand Kirchhoff's current law states that current in has to equal current out, but I've never actually done a hand calculation from DC to AC before for calculating current. Thanks in advance for an clarifications!
