# What is CV vs HP?

## What is CV vs HP?

CV (and PS) is almost identical to HP, but there is a slight difference: 1 CV = 1.013 HP.

How do you calculate 3 phase motor horsepower?

Determining actual motor horsepower Use this formula to estimate motor horsepower: Horsepower (hp) = Voltage x Amerage x % EFF x power factor x 1.73/746.

What is CV horsepower?

C.V = The horse of steam (CV) is a unit of power measurement that is defined as the power needed to vertically lift a weight of 75 kgf to 1 m in height in 1 s.

### What is CH power?

Amount: 1 French cheval vapeur (ch) of power. Equals: 1.00 horsepower – Metric (hp) in power. Converting French cheval vapeur to horsepower – Metric value in the power units scale.

How do you calculate kW in a 3 phase circuit?

kW = √3 × PF × A × V / 1000 The power (kW) equals the square root of three (√3) multiplied by the power factor (PF) times the current (Amps or A), times the line-to-line RMS voltage (V) divided by 1000.

How can kW be converted to hp?

For an average 110 kW gas car (Example 1)

• 48,000 BTU 5-zone mini-split air conditioner (Example 2)
• We’ll calculate how many HP new Tesla S model has (Example 3)
• #### What is the formula for 3 phase kW?

To calculate 3 phase kWh from measuring amps on each phase Use this formula; KW= (volts (avg) x amps (avg) x power factor x 1.732) divided by 1,000. If we assume 8 hours of use and continuing with the example: kWh = P (KW) x hours of use = 86 KW x 8 hours = 688 kWh.

What is the formula for calculating kW?

kW = kilowatt or kilowatts.

• V LN = Volts line to neutral.
• V LL = Volts line to line.
• I AC1Ø = Current/Amps 1 phase.
• I AC2Ø = Current/Amps 2 phase.
• I AC3Ø = Current/Amps 3 phase.
• FP = Power factor.
• How to convert kW to amps in 3 phase system?

DC kW to Amps. It is a ratio of 1000 times kW to the system voltages.

• Single phase kW to Amps. The single phase and all other alternating current circuits introduce an additional concept of power factor in the denominator.
• Two-phase kW to Amps.
• Three phase kW to Amps.
