## Peak Voltage Formula:

Peak Voltage (Vp) is a fundamental concept in the analysis of AC (Alternating Current) circuits, especially crucial in electrical and electronics engineering.

It represents the maximum instantaneous value of a voltage waveform, which is vital in designing and testing electrical devices that must withstand maximum voltages without failure.

Peak voltage is especially important for devices connected to AC power supplies, as it defines the highest voltage that components are exposed to during operation.

Peak voltage, Vpeak(V) in volts equals the product of  RMS voltage, VRMS(V) in volts and the square root of 2 (approximately 1.414).

Peak voltage, Vpeak(V) = VRMS(V) * √2

Vpeak(V) = peak voltage in volts, V.

VRMS(V) = RMS voltage in volts, V.

### Peak Voltage Calculation:

1. Calculate the peak voltage for an AC circuit with an RMS voltage of 230 volts: Given: VRMS(V) = 230 volts

Peak voltage, Vpeak(V) = VRMS(V) * √2

Vpeak(V) = 230 * √2

Vpeak(V) = 230 * 1.414

Vpeak(V) = 325.26V.

1. Suppose an AC device operates at an peak voltage of 155.54 volts. Calculate its RMS voltage:

Given: Vpeak(V) = 155.54V.

Peak voltage, Vpeak(V) = VRMS(V) * √2

VRMS(V) = Vpeak(V) / √2

VRMS(V) = 155.54 / √2

VRMS(V) = 110V.

### Applications and Considerations:

• Electrical Safety: Knowing the peak voltage is essential for ensuring that electrical installations and devices can handle the highest voltages during cycles.
• Circuit Design: Engineers use peak voltage values to design circuits that can operate safely under maximum voltage conditions.
• Quality Assurance: In manufacturing and quality assurance, knowing the peak voltage helps in testing electrical products to ensure durability and safety.
