How process CPU percentage is calculated?

I have a process that is CPU intense.
'top -C' shows CPU usage for this process no higher than 20%, more like
But TIME field grows 10 sec for every 15-17 secs or real time.
top(1) says: Each time -C flag is passed it toggles between "raw
cpu" mode and "weighted cpu" mode
So I am looking at "raw cpu". With 15-18% CPU every second of process
TIME should correspond to ~6secs of real time, and in my case it's only
~1.6sec of real time.
Why CPU field is so low?
