    Hi All,
    I am planning to calculate my total power consumption of my circuit so that I can decide source power supply.

    I have 24V power source,In of my circuit,I use led strobe 8A, @ 20% duty cycle of 1 mSec. How to calculate power consumption? what power criteria to choose source I need consider?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Regards,
    Pragnesh

     \small P_{avg}=P_{peak} * DutyCycle

    Depending on your power source it may not like/provide peaks of 8A if it's rated for less current than that.
