Get the motor electrical input power Pin (in Watts)from the product of current, voltage and the cosine of the phase angle.
Get the delivered power Pout (in Watts) from the product of torque and angular velocity. Make sure the torque is in Newton meters and the angular velocity is in radians/sec
The motor efficiency is Pout/Pin
