How to convert lumens to watts
You can calculate watts from lumens and luminous efficacy. Lumen and watt units represent different quantities, so you can't convert lumens to watts.
Lumens to watts calculation formula
The power P in watts (W) is equal to the luminous flux ΦV in lumens (lm), divided by the luminous efficacy η in lumens per watt (lm/W):
P(W) = ΦV(lm) / η(lm/W)
watts = lumens / (lumens per watt)
W = lm / (lm/W)
What is the power consumption of a lamp that has luminous flux of 900 lumens and luminous efficacy of 15 lumens per watt?
P = 900lm / 15lm/W = 60W
