# What is the biggest electric motor?

Contents

A high temperature superconductor (HTS) developed by Northrop Grumman Corporation and tested by the U.S. Navy holds this title. It is the world’s first 36.5 megawatt (49,000 horsepower) HTS ship propulsion motor.

## What is the largest single phase electric motor?

The largest single-phase motors suitable for residential use top out at 10 horsepower. A few commercial applications may be found for higher voltage single-phase motors at up to 15 horsepower, but these are rare and require 480 volts of single-phase current to operate.

## Which motor has highest power to weight?

The motor which has the highest power to weight ratio: Capacitor-start motor.

## How much HP can an electric motor make?

Electric Motors

An electric motor’s output is measured in kilowatts. Companies that build electric cars continue to talk about horsepower because consumers are still more familiar with that type of unit. The equation is as simple as hp = kW x 1.369, so a 100-kW motor produces 136 horsepower.

## How many HP is a single-phase motor?

Single-Phase Motors – HP and Full-Load Currents

Power Full Load Current (amp)
(hp) (kW) 208 V
1 0.75 8.8
1 1/2 1.1 11
2 1.5 13.2

## What is the single-phase?

Single-phase power is a two-wire alternating current (ac) power circuit. Typically, there is one power wire—the phase wire—and one neutral wire, with current flowing between the power wire (through the load) and the neutral wire.

## What is torque vs horsepower?

Torque, simply, is the ability of a vehicle to perform work — specifically, the twisting force applied by the crankshaft. Horsepower is how rapidly the vehicle can perform that work. For instance, a lightweight sports car that operates at high rpm may have high horsepower, but low torque.

## How many horsepower is a 15 amp motor?

Common Amps to Horsepower Conversions

Amps Horsepower Efficiency
15 A 2.17 HP 90%
20 A 2.9 HP 90%
25 A 3.62 HP 90%
30 A 4.34 HP 90%
