Power_in (max) = 110W.


Power_in (let’s said pf=0.7, realistic case) = 110 x 0.7 =
77W, this is more realistic power input.

https://www.eleccircuit.com/ac-lights-dimmer-circuit/ 9/15
24/11/2018 Dimmer circuit using SCR - TRIAC - ElecCircuit.com
So if power input is only about 77W. Please tell me.
How it could output 1200W? It’s impossible according
to the law of conservation of energy. The fuse will just
BLOW every time it switches on at full brightness.

To get 1200W input for the typical realistic case.

You need:
Fuse rating (Irms)
= Pr / (V * pf)
= 1200 / (220 * 0.7)
= 6.5A

Sure! You may not need the many currents. Since it is a


dimmer. But at maximum brightness. You need to use
6.5A current. Otherwise, I am sure something will blow
(the fuse).
