You can do that on the Power conversion page here:

There are slightly different values of horsepower depending on the industry. But the values are very close so unless you need high accuracy then just use the International Horsepower.

1 kilowatt is about 1.34 horsepower

Hi Halim,

you should use equation Kilowatts x 1.34 to get Horsepower

Per NIST SP811, 1 HP = 745.6999 W
so 1 W = 0.001 3341 HP
