Heat Gain from Electrical Motors in Continuous Operation

Heat transferred from electrical motors to rooms with different locations of fan and motor

Electrical motors in air condition system contributes to the heat loads in air condition systems and have influence on the cooling equipment dimensions.

heat gain fans

Gained heat load from electrical motor and fans in different locations can be estimated from the table below:
