What is kVA to VA calculator

Converting kilovolt-amps (kVA) to volt-amps (VA) is a straightforward process since both units represent the apparent power of an electrical system. The formula for converting kVA to VA is:

VA = kVA x 1000

To convert kVA to VA, simply multiply the apparent power in kilovolt-amps by 1000.

For example, if you have an apparent power of 5 kVA, you can calculate the power in volt-amps as follows:

VA = 5 kVA x 1000 VA = 5000 VA

In this example, 5 kVA is equivalent to 5000 VA.

It's important to note that both kVA and VA represent apparent power, which is the combination of real power (measured in watts) and reactive power. Apparent power takes into account both the magnitude and phase relationship between voltage and current in an electrical system.

kVA to volt-amps calculation

The apparent power S in volt-amps (VA) is equal to 1000 times the apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA):

S(VA) =  1000 × S(kVA)

kVA to VA calculator Example

To convert kilovolt-amps (kVA) to volt-amps (VA), you do not need to consider the power factor. The conversion from kVA to VA is straightforward, as both units measure apparent power.

The formula to calculate VA from kVA is:

VA = kVA * 1000

Here's an example that demonstrates the calculation:

Let's assume you have a kVA rating of 10 kVA.

VA = 10 kVA * 1000 = 10,000 VA

Therefore, the apparent power in volt-amps corresponding to a 10 kVA rating would be 10,000 VA.

It's important to note that apparent power (VA) represents the total power in an electrical system, combining both real and reactive power.
