Horsepower Amps Voltage
1 HP 6.91 A 120 V
1.25 HP 8.63 A 120 V
1.5 HP 10.4 A 120 V

## How do I convert kW to amps?

To convert amps to kilowatts the power formula can be used, which states that I = P ÷ E, given that P is the power in watts, I is current in amps, and E is voltage in volts. Thus, the power P in kilowatts is equal to the current I in amps multiplied by the voltage V in volts, divided by 1,000.

## How many amps is a 60 kW generator?

75 60 98.5
80 65 106.7

## How do you calculate kW to amps?

AC three phase kilowatts to amps calculation formula

1. I = 1000 × P / (√3 × PF × VL-L )
2. amps = 1000 × kilowatts / (√3 × PF × volts)
3. A = 1000 × kW / (√3 × PF × V)
4. I = 1000 × 0.33kW / (√3 × 0.8 × 110V) = 2.165A.
