## How much electricity does a 1 horsepower motor use?

If the motor is fully loaded, it will provide output power of 1 HP = (1 X 0.746) kW = **0.746kW**. Electrical Input Power = (Output Power/Efficiency). Assuming 90% efficiency, Input Power = 0.746/0.9 = 0.83kW.

## How much electricity does 1 HP motor consume per hour?

If I have a 1 HP motor that runs 1 hour, it will consume **750 watts**, if it starts one time. But if the motors works one hour, and it starts 4 times, and works 15 minutes each time.

## How much does it cost to run a 1 HP motor?

Our 1 hp (standard) example UST1102 motor above will cost **between $1-$5 per day**, depending on what your power company charges per kWh, and on how many hours per day the pump is running, which changes within the season. This will result in a monthly cost of $30-$150.

## How much power does electric motor consume?

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.

## How many kW is a 5HP motor?

Since one electric horsepower is equal to **0.746 kilowatts**, the formula to find kilowatts is to multiply electric horsepower by 0.746. For example, here’s how to convert 5 electric horsepower to kilowatts using the formula.

## How much power does a 100 hp motor use?

Data Logger information imported into a spreadsheet for analysis. This 100-horsepower centrifugal pump motor, if fully loaded, should be consuming nearly **80,000 watts (80 kW)**.

## How much power does a 20 hp motor use?

If the motor actually delivers 20 horsepower (hp) of mechanical power, then the motor will draw **49 amps**.

## How much electricity does a 1 HP pool pump use?

Our 1 hp example pump uses **1.75 Kw per hour**; whereas a 2 hp motor of the same type (UST1202) would draw 2.4 Kw per hour. That’s around 24 kWh per day, or around 720 kWh per month, just running only 10 hors per day. During the heat of the summer, many pumps need to run longer to maintain clear water.

## How many units is 1kw?

So a 100-Watt bulb if kept on for 10 hours will consume: 100 x 10 = 1000 Watt-Hour = 1 Kilowatt-Hour (kWH) = **1 units** (on your meter).

## How much electricity does a 10 hp motor use?

746 watts per Hp but, rule of thumb figure **1KW per Hp** to allow for efficiency losses. So 10 KWH would run a 10 Hp motor for 1 hour.

## 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).
