Hye everyone....
My project is regarding with hybrid car.can someone show me the calculation and the formula used to proved this value.taking example honda insight:

for engine:

Engine Type: In-Line 4-Cylinder
Displacement (cc): 1339
Horsepower @ rpm (Combined: engine (SAE net) + electric motor): 98 @ 5800
Torque (lb-ft @ rpm, combined engine (SAE net) + electric motor): 123 @ 1000-1700
Bore and Stroke (mm): 73 x 80
Compression Ratio: 10.8 : 1
Valve Train: 8-Valve SOHC i-VTEC®

how do they get the horsepower and torque?what is the formula used?

for electric motor (BLDC motor):

Power (hp @ rpm): 13 @ 1500
Torque (lb-ft @ rpm): 58 @ 1000

how do they get the horsepower and torque?what is the formula used?

battery specs:

Output (Volts): 100.8
Rated Capacity: 5.75 Ah

if you use the right units...

Power = torque * angular velocity

(Angular velocity is related to rpm remember)

It's probably possible to calculate the likely power output of a gas engine from first principles (if you are an expert in gas engine design), but it can also be measured on a rolling road. As can the torque.

You don't have enough information to calculate the power yourself. At best you could check that the power and torque are roughly consistent with each other because the give you the rpm.
