# How much current does a 5hp motor draw?

Contents

## How much electricity does a 5 hp motor consume?

If the motor is loaded to 5 hp, it works out to 5*735= 3675 watts. In one our, it would consume 3675 *1= 3675 watt hours= 3.675 kWh or 3.675 units.

## How many amps does a 5 HP 220v motor draw?

Use a 40 amp like they recommended if at all possible. The motor is probably rated for 22 amp continuous and will pull a lot more during starting.

## What size breaker do I need for a 5 hp motor?

A 5hp single phase AC motor has a load current of 28 Amps. So 10GA. wire with a 30 Amp breaker will work.

## What is the full load current of a 5 hp motor?

Full Load Current: Three Phase AC Motors

Motor Horsepower Motor Ampere
5 230V 460V 15.2 7.6
7-1/2 230V 460V 22 11
10 230V 460V 28 14
15 230V 460V 42 21

## How many amps does a 5.5 kW motor draw?

Three Phase Motors

MOTOR RATING HP APPROX. F.L.C. AT LINE VOLTAGE
3.0 kW 4 12
3.7 kW 5 15
4.0 kW 5.5 16
5.5 kW 7.5 20

## How is motor no load current calculated?

The motor will take 10% of the full load current. therefore, No load current at star connection = 0.1 x Motor Full load current.

## What is 5hp amps?

AMP DRAW BASED ON HORSEPOWER

HP 1 Phase Amps 3 Phase Amps
115 volt 230 volt
5 56 15.2
7-1/2 80 22
10 100 28

## How many amps does a 5 hp compressor draw?

A 5 hp will be around 21 amps, and a 7.5 hp will be around 35 amps.

## How many amps does a 5 HP well pump draw?

5 hp and will use ~5 amps/700 watts during operation and will require at least 1.2 KW internally regulated generator to start/operate the pump. A 25 amp circuit breaker means the pump is 1 HP or smaller and will use ~9 amps/1400 watts during operation.

## What size conductors are required for a 5 hp single phase 208v motor?

A: The full-load current of a 5-horsepower, 208-volt three-phase motor is 16.7 amperes according to Table 430-150. The motor branch circuit conductors must have a minimum capacity of 125 percent of motor full-load current to comply with Section 430-22. This results in a minimum conductor ampacity of (1.25 x 16.7) 20.9.

## What size conductors are required for a 5 hp single phase 230V motor?

NEC Table 430.245 states to size 5HP motor for 28A at 230V. Add 25% for start up and the circuit should be sized for 35 amps minimum. That would be #8 copper conductors with a 40A or 45A breaker. The only way you could verify it is to check the amperage with an ammeter at start up and see if it is over 30A.

## What size wire do I need for a 5 hp air compressor?

A full load current for a 5hp single phase AC motor on 230v is 28 amps. So 10ga. wire with a 30 amp breaker will be fine.

## What is the full load current for a 5hp 208V single phase motor?

Full-Load Current in Amperes Single-Phase Alternating Current Motors

HP 115V 208V
5 56 30.8
7-1/2 80 44
10 100 55
The voltages listed are rated motor voltages. The listed currents are for system voltage ranges of 110 to 120 and 220 to 240.
