Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are a modern and efficient type of motor widely used in applications from small appliances to electric vehicles. The BLDC Motor Power Calculator is a practical tool designed to estimate the output power of a BLDC motor based on its input parameters and efficiency. This calculator is invaluable for engineers, technicians, and hobbyists who need to optimize motor performance for specific applications.

## Formula of BLDC Motor Power Calculator

**Output Power (P) = Input Voltage (V) * Input Current (I) * Efficiency (η)**

Where:

**P**= Output Power of the motor (in watts).**V**= Input Voltage to the motor (in volts).**I**= Input Current to the motor (in amperes).**η**= Efficiency of the motor (as a decimal, e.g., 0.85 for 85% efficiency).

#### Steps to Calculate BLDC Motor Power

**Measure Input Voltage (V):**- Determine the voltage supplied to the motor, which is typically specified by the power source or battery.

**Measure Input Current (I):**- Use an ammeter to measure the current flowing into the motor during operation.

**Determine Motor Efficiency (η):**- Motor efficiency can be obtained from the motor specifications provided by the manufacturer or from experimental measurements.

**Calculate Output Power:**- Multiply the input voltage, input current, and efficiency to find the motor’s output power.

## General Reference Table

To assist users, a table is provided below with common voltage and current ranges, along with typical efficiency values for BLDC motors:

Input Voltage (V) | Input Current (I) | Typical Efficiency (η) |
---|---|---|

12V | 1.5A | 0.80 |

24V | 2.0A | 0.85 |

48V | 2.5A | 0.90 |

This table helps users quickly reference typical values without needing detailed calculations for preliminary assessments.

## Example of BLDC Motor Power Calculator

Consider a BLDC motor operating at an input voltage of 24 volts and an input current of 2 amperes, with an efficiency rating of 85%:

**Output Power Calculation**:- P=24V×2A×0.85P = 24V \times 2A \times 0.85P=24V×2A×0.85
- P=40.8 wattsP = 40.8 \text{ watts}P=40.8 watts

This example shows how the calculator can be used to estimate the power output of a BLDC motor, providing crucial data for system design and verification.
