Enter the output power (watts) and the efficiency (%) into the calculator to determine the Brushless Motor Input Power.

## Brushless Motor Input Power Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Brushless Motor Input Power.

Pi = Po/(E/100)
• Where Pi is the Brushless Motor Input Power (watts)
• Po is the output power (watts)
• E is the efficiency (%)

To calculate the brushless motor input power, divide the output power by the efficiency of the motor.

## How to Calculate Brushless Motor Input Power?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Brushless Motor Input Power.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the output power (watts). In this example, the output power (watts) is measured to be 50.
2. Next, determine the efficiency (%). For this problem, the efficiency (%) is calculated to be 50.
3. Finally, calculate the Brushless Motor Input Power using the formula above:

Pi = Po/(E/100)

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Pi = 50/(50/100) = 100 (watts)

Example Problem #2:

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

output power (watts) = 40

efficiency (%) = 30

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

Pi = 40/(30/100) = 133.33(watts)
