How to convert kilowatts to horsepower

Kilowatts to mechanic / hydraulic horsepower

One mechanic or hydraulic horsepower is equal to 0.745699872 kilowatts:

1 hp(I) = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW

So the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by:

P(hp) = P(kW) / 0.745699872

Example

Convert 10kW to mechanic horsepower:

P(hp) = 10kW / 0.745699872 = 13.41 hp

 

Kilowatts to electrical horsepower

One electrical horsepower is equal to 0.746 kilowatts:

1 hp(E) = 746 W = 0.746 kW

So the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by:

P(hp) = P(kW) / 0.746

Example

Convert 10kW to electrical horsepower:

P(hp) = 10kW / 0.746 = 13.405 hp

 

Kilowatts to metric horsepower

One metric horsepower is equal to 0.73549875 kilowatts:

1 hp(M) = 735.49875 W = 0.73549875 kW

So the power conversion of kilowatts to horsepower is given by:

P(hp) = P(kW) / 0.73549875

Example

Convert 10kW to metric horsepower:

P(hp) = 10kW / 0.73549875 = 13.596 hp
