ESSENTIAL FORMULAS FOR MOTOR ENGINEERING
Essential Formulas for Motor Engineering
Motor Engineering is a vital part of Engineering sector. There is no industry where motor is not using; from utility to machinery keep it run motor is mandatory.
Due to uses of huge motors, a large portion of everyday work time also consumed this fellow; and need to face new and critical problem every time.
Yes friends, to solve the problems some time quick and shortcut formula is very effective. That is the main reasons today's presentation on very easy and basic formula related to motor which we called Essential Formula for Motor engineering.
We know, You who are engaged with motor engineering know these formula very well, but some time memory lost. Hope this will help like a friends.
Ohm's Law
Ohm's Law is very basic formula for electrical engineering. Everybody knows this formula, here all of this formula in a circle for easy understanding.
Three Phase Values
Just memorise the value 1.732 which comes from square root of 3; multiply with this value to get three value from single phase. Follow the following table for some common values.

AC Efficiency and Power Factor Formulas
We need some formula to fiend out Motor Efficiency and Power factor for single phase or three phase motors. Follow the following table formula.

Motor Application Formulas
There are four formula related to motor horse power, kilowatts, torque in poundfoot or newtonmeter. These formula we are calling Motor Application Formula.
Horsepower = Torque (lbft) x RPM
5252

Kilowatts = Torque
(Nm) x RPM
9550

Torque (lbft) = Horsepower x 5252
RPM

Torque (Nm) = Kilowatts x 9550
RPM

Average Amperages for Given Horsepower Motor Ratings
The
table below provides the average fullload currents of squirrel cage motors
based on NEC (National Electrical Code) Tables 430148, 149, and 150.
These
values are given only as a guide  they may vary depending on the type of motor
and manufacturer. Refer to the actual motor nameplate for fullload current
values.
