Power for DC Motor Solution

Dear sir,

I have DC motor with specification bellow:
Power = 6Hp
Voltage = DC12V
Ampere range = 375-440A
Application = for winch
Power line that I have = 380V/3Ø/50Hz
How I must supply power for DC motor with specification above?

You will have to provide 10 KVA, 3 phase, 400 volts, 50 Hz, commercially available DC 12 volt output battery charger either with battery bank of required AH capacity or direct connected to winch. Any commercial battery charger equipment manufacturer should offer the required equipment. You can also discuss with them for fine tuning the specifications.
