How do I convert HP to amps?
Converting horsepower to amps can be done in a few simple steps, or using this simple formula.
- Amps = (Horsepower × 746) ÷ Efficiency ÷ Volts.
- Watts = Horsepower × 746.
- Watts = Wattsη
- Amps = Watts ÷ Volts.
- Amps = HP × 746V × η × PF.

What size breaker do I need for a 5 hp motor?
In fact code recommends a 60 amp circuit breaker for a 5 hp 230v motor, but with overload protection.
How many amps does a 5 hp motor use?
A 5 HP motor at 230V, 3PH is12.
Using the formula above, multiply 12.4 amps by 10% for a result of 1.24. Add this total to 12.4 for a total of 13.64 amps.

|115 volt||230 volt|
How much power does a 2 hp motor use?
How many watts does a 2 HP motors have? If a 2 horse power motor is doing 2 horsepower of work then in the load about 1500 Watts of energy is used in the load.
What is the full load current of a 1 hp motor?
For single phase motors, NEC table 430-148 gives 230 Vac full load current of 8 amps for a 1 HP motor.
What is the starting current of 1 hp motor?
For a 1 HP 3phase induction motor draws a current =W /V, so 1 HP is equal to 746 watts, or rounded off to 750 watts, so it will be 750 /415 volts =1.7 amperes, approximately and at a powerfactor at unity means 1.
