What Is the Difference between BHP and Ps?


The difference between PS and BHP is that BHP is a method of measurement for vehicles without the encumbrance added by connecting devices like the gearbox and transmission system while PS is a unit of power in German.

The power that can be generated by a mechanical device is measured either in BHP or PS. BHP measures the power in foot pounds per second whereas PS measures power in kilograms meter per second.
BHP is Brake Horse Power and it’s the standard used in the US under the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). It is measured by applying resistance on a dynamometer and measuring the heat produced while maintaining rpms as the load is gradually increased. PS is the European equivalent, sometimes called DIN Deutesche Institute fur Normung, for German Institute for Standardization. DIN horsepower numbers are approximately 1.38% higher than SAE numbers.
BHP is the brake horse power, and it is calculated by applying resistance on the hydrometer, after which one should obtain the value of the heat generated while preserving the RPMS as the quantity of the load in increased, whereas PS is the general horsepower that is measured by rating the engine performance of cars and mowers. Before PS came into use, most cars were rated in BHP, but the ever-changing technological innovation in the auto world has revolutionised the way individuals rate the engine power today.
