Hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to calculate the electric efficiency of some 3 phase electric motors but I am a little confused about the power factor.

efficiency=work out/work in

work out=rated W of my motor (hp*745.7)

work in= V*A*PF*√3

Is the work in correct?

Thanks
