Two Formulas are there,
1)British Method
2)Metric Method

On British Method 1HP=735.5watts
On Metric Method 1HP=746watts

Generally,
1HP=746 watts

Therefore iKW =1.3405HP (1/0.746=1.3405)

 Is This Answer Correct ? 27 Yes 4 No

formula
1.732*v*i*cos0
kw= ---------------
hp *1000

1.732*v*i*cos0
hp= ------------------ that is formula
kw *1000

1 kwh = 1.34 hp
1.kw = 1.25kva
1 hp = 0.74 kw
1 hp = 1.73 amp
0.8 kw =1 kva
in british method 1 hp=735.5 kw
in metric method 1 hp=746 kw

 Is This Answer Correct ? 26 Yes 6 No

  Question Asked @ Answers Other Electrical Engineering Interview Questions how does the harmonics enter into the induction motors? 1 if the 10 hp motor name plate indicates rated current as 13.6 amp the what will be the thermal relay setting? Why? And in how much time relay will trip at the set value? 2 why in isolation transformer we dont get any shok? 1 Explain What will happen when direction of field current is changed (i.e, field excitation is reversed) in the following machines? 1) Alternator 2) Synchronous Motor 3) D.C Generator ( Shunt or Seies ) 4) D.C Motor ( Shunt or Seies ) NTPC 2 Can you explain operating principle of Inverse Definite Minimum Time” (IDMT) relay 2 what is the benift of HT metering & LT metering 1 why the motor running in delta connection ? it can be in star? NTPC 13 What is required of exietation to the alternater. 4 effect of decrease in excitation? 2 what are the causes for strip heater failure ? 1 why we are caling 440 volt 3 phase supply instead of 660 volt 3 phase supply? because each phase as a voltage of 220 volt. if anybody know the answer for my question please send it to my mail id. thank you.
