## 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. |

## What is full load current of motor?

Definition of ‘full load current’

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.
