Formula for converting Kilowatts to horsepower

Kilowatts to mechanic/ hydraulic horsepower

1 hp (I) = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW, where one mechanic or hydraulic horsepower is equivalent to 0. 745699872 kW

This means that the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by;

P (hp) = P (kW) / 0.745699872

Kilowatts to electrical horsepower

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

This implies that the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by;

P (hp) = P (kW) / 0.746 

Kilowatts to metric horsepower

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

This means that the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by;

P (hp) = P (kW) / 0.73549875
