## 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.

## 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.

## How many watts is a 3 HP motor?

Approximate Running Wattage

Approximate Starting Wattage | Approximate Running Wattage | |
---|---|---|

Capacitor Start Induction Run 1 1/2Horsepower | 4200 | 1600 |

Capacitor Start Induction Run 2 Horsepower | 5100 | 2000 |

Capacitor Start Induction Run 3 Horsepower | 6800 | 3000 |

Capacitor Start Induction Run 4 Horsepower | 9800 | 4800 |

## What size generator do I need to run a 2.2 kW motor?

So for example:

Single phase 2.2Kw motor : therefore the Generator will need to be 8.8kVA.
