Hi all, I'm planning to drive the automobile ac compressor via a BLDC motor instead of IC engine. This is only when the vehicle is parked. Now, I'm trying to determine torque requirement. Is my calculation correct? Power consumption: 1.46 kW compressor speed : 1000rpm torque=5252*hp/1000 = 14Nm Is this value too high to be driven by a motor for a speed of 1000rpm?
