# How to convert Horsepower to kilowatts

How to convert power in horsepower (hp) units to kilowatts (kW) units.

### Mechanic / Hydraulic horsepower to kilowatts

One mechanic or hydraulic horsepower is equal to 0.745699872 kilowatts:

1 hp(I) = 745.699872 W = 0.745699872 kW

So the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts is given by:

P(kW) = 0.745699872 ⋅ P(hp)

##### Example

Convert 10 hp to kW:

P(kW) = 0.745699872 ⋅ 10hp = 7.45699872 kW

### Electrical horsepower to kilowatts

One electrical horsepower is equal to 0.746 kilowatts:

1 hp(E) = 746 W = 0.746 kW

So the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts is given by:

P(kW) = 0.746 ⋅ P(hp)

##### Example

Convert 10 hp to kW:

P(kW) = 0.746 ⋅ 10hp = 7.460 kW

### Metric horsepower to kilowatts

One metric horsepower is equal to 0.73549875 kilowatts:

1 hp(M) = 735.49875 W = 0.73549875 kW

So the power conversion of horsepower to kilowatts is given by:

P(kW) = 0.73549875 ⋅ P(hp)

##### Example

Convert 10 hp to kW:

P(kW) = 0.73549875 ⋅ 10hp = 7.3549875 kW
