Formula for Converting BHP to KW

1 hp = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW

This means that one BHP is equivalent to 0.745699872 Kilowatts.

Therefore, the power conversion of BHP to kW is given by;

P (kW) = P (hp) x 0.745699872. To determine the power in Kilowatts, we multiply the power in BHP by 0.745699872.

Using the example above;

Convert 80 BHP to power in Kilowatts

The calculation will be;

P (kW) = 80 BHP x 0.745699872

= 59.65598976 Kilowatts (kW)
