To get the hour of the day component of the Period, use the period.hour property.

At first, import the required libraries −

import pandas as pd

The pandas.Period represents a period of time. Creating two Period objects −

period1 = pd.Period("2020-09-23 05:55:30")
period2 = pd.Period(freq="H", year = 2021, month = 7, day = 16, hour = 2, minute = 35)

Get the hour of the day from two Period objects −

res1 = period1.hour
res2 = period2.hour

## Example

Following is the code −

import pandas as pd

# The pandas.Period represents a period of time
# creating two Period objects
period1 = pd.Period("2020-09-23 05:55:30")
period2 = pd.Period(freq="H", year = 2021, month = 7, day = 16, hour = 2, minute = 35)

# display the Period objects
print("Period1...\n", period1)
print("Period2...\n", period2)

# get the hour of the day from two Period objects
res1 = period1.hour
res2 = period2.hour

# Return the hour of the day from the two Period objects
print("\nHour of the day from the 1st Period object ...\n", res1)
print("\nHour of the day from the 2nd Period object...\n", res2)

## Output

This will produce the following code −

Period1...
2020-09-23 05:55:30

Period2...
2021-07-16 02:00

Hour of the day from the 1st Period object ...
5

Hour of the day from the 2nd Period object...
2
