## How is motor current rating calculated?

**The motor FLA calculator uses the following formulas:**

- Single Phase AC Motor FLA (Amperes) = (P [kW] × 1000) / (V × cos ϕ)
- Single Phase AC Motor FLA (Amperes) = (P [HP] × 746) / (V × cos ϕ × η)
- Three Phase AC Motor FLA (Amperes) = (P [kW] × 1000) / (V × 1.732 × cos ϕ)

## How do you calculate the rated current of a motor from kW?

Single Phase AC – kW to amps

For any single-phase AC circuit, Current, I = 1000 x kW / (Vac x P.F.) Therefore, amps can be calculated from AC – kW by **dividing kW by the product of the RMS value of applied AC voltage and power factor and multiplying it by 1000**.

## What is the full load current of a motor?

A full load current is **the largest current that a motor or other device is designed to carry under particular conditions**. The starters shall be suitably rated to continuously carry the full load current of the motor and also accept the starting current surges without tripping.

## Why motor is rated in kW instead of kVA?

At the other hand, **Motor has fixed Power factor, i.e. motor has defined power factor (p.f)** and the rating has been mentioned in kW on Motor nameplate data table. That’s why we are rated Motor in kW or HP (kilowatts/ Horsepower) instead of kVA.

## What is rated speed of motor?

The rated speed is **the speed at which the motor will first produce its maximum designed power output**, and “maximum speed,” the fastest the motor can spin while producing that same amount of power./:m] ]The reduction ratio should be applied on the RPM while your load is attached to the motor.

## How many kW is an amp?

kW is a unit of measure of electrical power (wattage). Ampere (A) is a unit of measure of electrical current (amperage).
