## How many watts is a 5 HP motor?

Hope this helps! Thank you! It is easy to convert HP to watts based on the equivalence of 746 watts per horsepower and arrive at 5 HP = 3730 watts.

## How much electricity does a 5 HP pump use?

A standard 5-horsepower (HP) electric motor pump-set shouldn’t — under ideal field conditions of three-phase supply at consistent 440V voltage — consume more than 3.73 kilowatt-hours of energy (one HP equals 0.746 kilowatts).

## What size generator do I need to run a 5hp motor?

Rule of Thumb

Electric Motor Size Minimum Generator Req’d (KVA) by Starting Method
HP KW S.D to KVA Size (Note 2)
5 3.7 10
6 4.5 12
7.5 5.5 15

## What size generator do I need to run a 5 hp motor?

A true 5 hp on 220 volts would require 28 amps to run on 220 or 6160 watts so at a minimum I would think 20,000 watt generator.

## How do you calculate the full load of a 5 hp motor?

Full load current I, I =P. / 1.732 * V Amps.

## How many liters per minute does a 5 hp pump pumps?

5hp = 3,730W which is 3,730Nm/sec or 223,800Nm/min. 223,800 / 9.806 = 22,822.76 L/min for a 1m lift.

## How many watts does a motor use?

Calculate the power the motor consumes while in operation. The equation is W = AV(sqrt 3) where A is amperes, V is volts, and sqrt 3 is the square root of 33 (about 1.73). W is the power consumption in watts. For example, if the electric motor uses 50 amps at 240 volts, the wattage is 50 x 240 x 1.73, or 20,760 watts.

## What is the wattage of a 300 horsepower engine?

Watts to horsepower conversion table

Watts (W) Mechanic horsepower (hp(I)) Electric horsepower (hp(E))
100 W 0.134022 hp 0.134048 hp
200 W 0.268204 hp 0.268097 hp
300 W 0.402307 hp 0.402145 hp
400 W 0.536409 hp 0.536193 hp

## Why is 1hp equal to 746 watts?

Theoretically, one horse power is defined as almost 746 Watt in standard calculations. It derived its name from the following context: One horsepower is the amount of power used by a horse to lift a 550 pounds heavy object from a depth of 1 foot in one second. This power when converted to SI system gives 746 Watts.

## What can a 5.5 KVA generator power?

“A 5.5 kVA can power a few office lights, a printer and two computers or you can power your household fridge, a few lights and a TV,” Le Roux, “A kettle uses nearly 1,200 watts.”

## What can a 4.5 KVA generator power?

‎ A 4.5kVA generator can power a deep freezer, 1 Air conditioner,1 TV, Home theatre and Water pump along with most of the fans and bulbs in the home or small office.
