how to calculate power at a given speed

Hi,

I understand how the forces are calculated as explained in footnote 7, but I'm not understanding how to calculate power.

I think total power = power drag + power rolling resistance + parasitic loads.

I've used the equations from Pamvec chapter 3 of P = 0.5*rho*Cd*A*v^3 + (Crr * Mtotal * g * v) but it gave me some ridiculously large numbers

What is the formula used in the online tool to calculate power?

Thanks.
Carter
