    You can do that on the Power conversion page here:
    http://www.onlineconversion.com/power.htm

    There are slightly different values of horsepower depending on the industry. But the values are very close so unless you need high accuracy then just use the International Horsepower.

    1 kilowatt is about 1.34 horsepower

      Hi Halim,

      you should use equation Kilowatts x 1.34 to get Horsepower

        1HP = 0.75KW

              are u sure thats right? is it really 1.34 horse power because i need to know how many horsepower equals 1 watt.

                Per NIST SP811, 1 HP = 745.6999 W
                so 1 W = 0.001 3341 HP

                        In 1 horsepower is equal to 746 Watts(w) or 0.746 Kilowatt(kw). Divide 1 by 0.746 the unit is Hp per Kw(Hp/kw), thus 1 divide by 0.746 = 1.34 this shows that in one(1) kw is equal to 1.34 horsepower(hp).

                          0.746 kW per hp implies 1 horsepower for every 750 Watts. Just 1 hp.


                          Fluid pump hp = (gpm)(specific gravity)( ft-head)/(3960)(pump eff)
                          hp = (100)(1.0)(100ft)/(3960)(.75) = 3.37 hp, so you install a 5 hp and the pump/fan will only pull the work the fan or pump draws at that rpm.

                          (3.37 hp)(.746kW/hp)/ 0.85 motor eff.= 2.96kW power draw and at 6 cents per kWh every hour of operation costs $0.18. an hour a day for a month costs (.18)( 30.4 day/mo =) $5.39 run the fountain 6 hours a day ... $32 ....run it 24/7 ... $130.
