Input Horsepower (Power Supplied to Driver) :

Input Horsepower (Power Supplied to Driver)
Definition :
  • The total power used in operating a pump and motor.
  • The Horsepower (hp) is a unit of measurement of power or the rate at which work is done, usually in reference to the output of engines or motors.
  • Horsepower refers to the power an engine produces and then the input power delivered by the motor to the pump is called brake horsepower (bHp). 
  • Then, The difference between the brake horsepower and hydraulic power is the pump efficiency.
  • The water horsepower is the minimum power required to move water. Then, it is the power a pump would require if the pump was 100 percent efficient.
  • The water horsepower can be determined if the flow rate of the water and then the force (pressure) required to produce that flow is known.
Formula :
  • The formula for the calculation is given below.
  • Result = Brake Horsepower / Driver Efficiency.
  • Beside the formula this calculator works.
How to Calculate ?
  • First, Enter the Brake Horsepower. Then,
  • Second, Enter the Driver Efficiency. Then,
  • Click “Calculate” to get the result and then if you want to clear values Click “Reset” in addition to clear the values.
  • Finally, follow these steps to get the result.
