## How many amps does a 3hp motor use?

Common Horsepower to Amps Conversions

Horsepower Amps Voltage
3 HP 20.7 A 120 V
3.5 HP 24.2 A 120 V
4 HP 27.6 A 120 V
4.5 HP 31.1 A 120 V

## How do you convert HP to amps?

The conversion from amps, a measure of electric current, to horsepower, a measure of power output by a motor, can be done using a fairly simple formula. Thus, horsepower is equal to the current in amps times the voltage in volts times the efficiency times the power factor, divided by 746.

## How much current does a 3 phase motor draw?

## 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.

## How do you convert HP volts to amps?

Given horsepower and volts, it is possible to calculate amps. The calculation of amps uses Ohm’s Law, which is amps times volts equals watts. Multiply the horsepower by 746 watts. For example, an engine at two horsepower with 230 volts would be calculated as two horsepower times 746 watts, which equals 1492.

## How many watts is a 1 hp motor?

One electric horsepower is equal to exactly 746 watts.

## How many amps does a 1.5 HP well pump draw?

For example a 1.5 HP Baldor motor turning 3450 rpm draws 13.4 amps on 120 volt service.

## How many amps does a 7.5 hp motor?

9 = 32.4 amps.

How many amps does a 7.5 hp motor draw?

HP 200 Volts 440-480 Volts
7.5 25.3 11

## How much current would a 1.5 HP 240v motor draw?

1 Horsepower is 745.7 watts, so a 1.5 HP motor would require a maximum of 1118.55 watts. 1118.55 W / 220V equals 5.084 amps, so in theory your motor will need just over 5 amps of current.
