Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Calculate amps, hp and kVA for electrical motors.
The calculators below can be used to calculate electric motor amps, horsepower and 3-phase kVa.
Calculate Current (amps)
Calculate Power (horsepower)
RLA - "Running Load Amps" - current drawn during normal operation of electric motor. FLA - "Full Load Amps" - amount of current drawn when full-load torque and horsepower is reached for the motor. FLA is usually determined in laboratory tests. Note! - in the calculator above FLA is RLA + 25% . 1 hp = 0.745 kW Related Mobile Apps from The Engineering ToolBox
