A useful calculator for converting hp to amps for an electric motor is the hp to amps calculator. It works in the same way as the watts to amps calculator.

**What does converting horsepower to amps mean?**

Hp stands for horsepower, which is a unit of power. Similarly, amps represent amperage, which is the electric current measured in amperes.

To convert horsepowers to amps, the output current from a device with a well-defined power must be estimated.

**Formula:**

**Ampere Calculation Formula for a Single Phase AC Motor:**

**Amps = [HP * 746] / [V *%age Efficiency * PF]**

**Ampere Calculation Formula for a Three Phase AC Motor:**

**Amps = [HP * 746] / [v *%age Efficiency * PF * 1] .73]**

Where,

HP – Horsepower

V – Voltage

PF – Powerfactor
