## What size generator do I need to run a 2 hp compressor?

2 HP Air Compressor: 7770 watts for starting wattage and 2800 for running wattage.

## How many watts does a 2hp motor use?

Watts to horsepower conversion table

Watts (W) Mechanic horsepower (hp(I)) Metric horsepower (hp(M))
1 W 0.001341 hp 0.001360 hp
2 W 0.002682 hp 0.002719 hp
3 W 0.004023 hp 0.004079 hp
4 W 0.005364 hp 0.005438 hp

## How many kW does a 2 hp motor use?

typical electricity consumption is 746 watts per single Horse-power. so 2 HP = 1.48 Kw per hour of operation.

## What size generator do I need to run a 3hp motor?

A generator rated 3 kVA will run a 3 hp motor. The engine that drives the generator may be rated 4 hp. If the motor load is hard starting, then you might need a larger generator, 4–5 kVA. Usually generators are rated in kilowatts, so a 3kW generator could be large enough, 4kW will work ok in most all cases.

THIS IS EXCITING:  How many times can a car battery go dead?

## What size generator do I need for 3hp compressor?

Strictly speaking 3hp will be a 3kw, but no way will a small 3kw generator cope with a big electric motor starting current. I’d think you’d want at least double the capacity ie 6kw.

## What size generator do I need for a 15 amp air compressor?

This compressor requires a 15 amp dedicated slow blow 120 volt circuit. You will need to figure 1800 to 2000 watts for the air compressor needs on start up. I would recommend a 2500 watt generator.

## How strong is 2 hp?

For electric motors and other electrical power applications, one horsepower is defined as 746 Watts, so a two horsepower electric motor is capable of providing up to 1492 Watts of power.

## How much power does a 2 hp motor use in one hour?

1 HP = 745 Watts, So 1/2 HP = 372 Watts . Current consumption at 220 V would be 1.7 Amps. In one hour -0.372 kWh (Units).

## How much power does a 2 hp motor use per hour?

If it is for 2 hours, then 1.49KW × 2hr = 2.98 KWh. This is how the energy( KWh)consumed by the motor is determined.

## How many gallons per minute does a 2 hp pump?

Number of submersible well pump stages determine pump lift capacity

Table of Submersible Pump Stages vs HP vs Total Dynamic Head vs. GPM Flow Rate Capacity
Water Pump HP Nr. of Pump Stages GPM Flow Rate Capacity
1 1/2 HP 11 4 – 40 GPM (varies by TDH)
2 HP 14 4 – 42 GPM (varies by TDH)
3 HP 19 4 – 43 GPM (varies by TDH)

## How much does a 2hp motor cost?

Price: Price Range: Rs. 4000 to 20,000.

## How much electricity does a 2 hp well pump use?

A 1 HP submersible well pump will require a 2.5 KW internally regulated generator to operate the pump. A 30 amp breaker means the pump is smaller than 2 hp will use ~11 amps/2000 watts during operation and will require a 4 KW internally regulated generator to operate the pump.

## What can a 2.2 kVA generator power?

Large Appliances

• A 2kva generator can handle the load of a caravan air conditioner. …
• A mid-sized refrigerator needs 1,200-watts on start before dropping down to 200-watts.
• You can run a 1,200-watt refrigerator, a third horsepower sump pump, and a desktop computer all at the same time.
