MVA to HP Conversion Formula:
Horsepower P(HP) is equal to 1340 times of product of apparent power S(MVA) in MVA and power factor. Hence for calculating MVA to HP,
P(HP) = 1340 x S(MVA) x pf
Power in HP = 1340 x apparent power in MVA x power factor.
Calculate the HP rating of 1.375 MVA 3 phase induction motor at the power factor 0.8.
P(HP) = 1340 x 1.375 x 0.8
Horsepower = 1474 HP, approximately 1500 HP.
Hence, 1.375 Mega Volt-amp motor can be rated as 1500 HP at 0.8 power factor.
