Answer
# 3
hp : the measure of rate of work .one horse power is
equivalent to lifting 33,000 pounds to a height one afoot
in one minutes .the horse power of motor is expressed a
function of torque and rpm for motor the following
approximate formula may be used

hp =txrpm /5250
t-torque (in-ib.ft),rpm- revolutin per minute
hp -horse power

kw : the watts is relatively small unit of power the kilo
watts (kw) 1,000 watts is use where large unit of power
measurement are desirable

Hp is the total power develop with in the cylinder &KW is
the power delivered at crankshaft.

relationship: 1KW=1.34HP

  Re: what is the diff b/w HP and KW
Answer
# 7
While all the above are correct
1 HP = 0.746 KW

Horsepower is a north american standard for specifying
motors. KW is the European standard.

Low Voltage motors listed in KW will normally have 3
phase / 50 Hertz as there power supply.

Low Voltage motors listed in Horsepower will normally have
3 phase / 60 hertz as the power supply.

Unless the Engineers are mixing standards when specifying
the motor.

It should be noted that the frequency of the supply power
will affect the RPMs of the motor. In north america 3/60
power the normal nominal RPMS are 3600, 1800, 1200, 900,
while in Europe (3/50) the normal nominal RPMS are 3000,
1500, 1000, 750.

I have a question, I visit 01 site and face a problem, there is 2.5 ton Air Con working, when air con compressor is running at that time rectifier voltages are increasing upto 290-295 v and rectifier is giving main high alarm (rectifier is APC single phase, before starting compressor rectifier voltages was 230v. when air con is going off rectifier voltages are decreasing smoothly at its actual voltages 230v. Load on Genset phases is this: Red-13.5 amp AC (Air Con load), Yellow-1.7 amp AC (BTS lights etc.) and Blew-4 amp AC (telecom system load), Genset phase to phase and neutral to phase voltages are also ok. These are 10 sites having same system and same rectifier APC brand at every site 02 genset are working but the problem is same at all these 10 sites. What will be the reason behind???   1
IF 3 NOS.OF HEATERS,3KW CAPACITY EACH,1 NO.HEATER CONNECTED IN R PHASE,1 IN Y PHASE AND 1 IN B PHASE.THEIR END POINTS CONNECTED IN STAR.IF I CONNECT THIS STAR POINT TO NEUTRAL OR DO NOT CONNECT TO NEUTRAL.WHAT WILL THE DIFFERENCE.   3

Bhel supervision exam question: If 2 generators are working in a network. And if suddenly the field of anyone generator weakens. What will happen in the network? 1. The generator will run as motor 2. The generator will run as motor in reverse direction 3. The generator will take lighter load 4. The generator will take more load Bhel 9
what happens to current , when voltage drops .?   11
I find that underground strip-armoiured,4core,LT PVC cables in an earthed power distribution sytem are occasionly found in charred condition-with no trace of it except ash. Is this because of no proper earth connection/continuity (giving rising to high armour resistance)in the joint enroute or because of insufficient capability (again due to high armour resistance)of cable-armour to carry fault current or due to neglected /unprotected overloading of the cable or due to high armour currents caused by power thefts where only phase(s) are unauthorisely tapped & at the point of poer consumption earth terminal is established by burring underground a not so good earthing rod (or using an underground water pipe for the purpose)   1
