Hp to kW Conversion

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in horsepower (hp) to power in kilowatts (kW). The first step when using this converter is to select the hp unit type.  It can either be mechanic horsepower, electrical horsepower or metric horsepower. Afterwards, use the blank text field to enter the value of horsepower depending on the unit type you have selected above.

Click the ‘Control' button to initiate the conversion from horsepower to kilowatts. The results in kilowatts will be displayed immediately below the two controls. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all data of previous calculations from the calculator.

Example

Convert 250 mechanical horsepower to the power in kilowatts

Solution

First, enter the value in mechanical horsepower (250) in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert' button. The result in kilowatts will be displayed as; 186.424968 W

Click the ‘Reset' button if you have new values in electrical or metric horsepower, and then select your option. Use the same procedure to obtain the new values in kilowatts.

How to convert horsepower to kilowatts

Mechanic/ Hydraulic horsepower to kilowatts

1 hp (I) = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW, where one mechanic or hydraulic horsepower is equivalent to 0.745699872 Kilowatts.

Therefore, the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts will be given by;

P (kW) = 0.745699872 x P (hp). To get the power in kilowatts, we multiply the power in horsepower by 0.745699872

Electrical horsepower to kilowatts

1 hp (E) = 746 W = 0.746 kW, where one electrical horsepower is equivalent to 746 kilowatts.

Therefore, the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts will be given by;

P (kW) = 0.746 x P (hp)

Metric horsepower to kilowatts

1 hp (M) = 735.49875 W = 0.73549875 kW, where one metric horsepower is equal to 0.73549875 W

Therefore, the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts is given by;

P (kW) = 0.73549875 x P (hp)
