Top best answers to the question «Why are electric motors rated in kw»

Motor is rated in kW since it specifies the capacity of the motor to drive its load. It is the active power (kW) that is of interest when a motor drives a load. The motor converts the active power that it draws from the mains into mechanical power that the load consumes/demands… Thus, a motor is rated in terms of kW.
