6 2hp/3ph/ac pump motor 415v/50Hz

7 4kw/200v/dc conveyer feed motor

8 5kva/3ph/ac 415v/50Hz

9 .5hp/1ph/ac fuelpump motor

10 1hp/1ph/ac water feed motor

11 2hp/3ph/ac conveyor drive motor

12 10 hp/3ph/ac cold roomcompressor motor

Dear ;

To be able to calculate the nominal current for a motor, you should know also the Power Fcator ” Cos φ ” for this motor, and if it's Single Phase or 3Phases motor, then we can apply the formula :

– For Single pahse : I = P / V x Cos φ

– For 3 phases : I = P / 1.73 x U x Cos φ

where :

– P : Motor's Power in ” kW “, but if we have it in ” HP ” we can take each HP = 0.742 kW

– V : Voltage between phase & neutral

– U : Voltage between 2 phases

But we should also take into consideration another factor that's ” The Efficiency ” of the motor, So the final value of the motor's current is :

In = I / Efficiency
