Formula of converting kW to BHP

This converter uses a simple method in executing the conversions.

1 hp = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW, which means that one mechanical brake horsepower is equivalent to 0.745699872 Kilowatts.

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

P (hp) = P (kW) / 0.745699872

Using the above example;

Convert 2000 Kilowatts to brake horsepower


= 2000 / 0.745699872

= 2682.0441777 hp

The mechanical brake horsepower to kilowatts conversion table is also used to give the conversions of common values from kilowatts to brake horsepower on a scale of 0.1 kW to 1000 kW.
