## Horsepower to Amperes Calculator for AC Motors

Published on

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
