VA to kVA calculator FullScreen

Convert apparent power in volt-amperes (VA) to kilovolt-amperes (kVA). Ideal for understanding the total power requirements of electrical systems and equipment. Obtain an estimation of kilovolt-amperes from volt-amperes using this practical online tool.

Enter volt-amps: VA
Result in kilovolt-amps: kVA


What is VA to kVA calculator

To convert volt-amps (VA) to kilovolt-amps (kVA), you need to divide the VA value by 1000. The formula is straightforward:

kVA = VA / 1000

Simply divide the apparent power in volt-amps by 1000 to obtain the apparent power in kilovolt-amps.

For example, if you have an electrical load with an apparent power of 5000 VA, you can calculate the apparent power in kilovolt-amps as follows:

kVA = 5000 VA / 1000 kVA = 5 kVA

In this example, the load has an apparent power of 5 kilovolt-amps.

Please note that volt-amps (VA) represent apparent power, which is the combination of real power and reactive power. Kilovolt-amps (kVA) are typically used to express larger electrical power values. It is important to understand the distinction between real power (watts) and apparent power (volt-amps) when working with electrical calculations.

Volt-amps to kVA calculation formula

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

S(kVA) =  S(VA) / 1000

VA to kVA calculator Example

Apparent Power (VA) kVA
1000 1
1500 1.5
2000 2
2500 2.5
3000 3
3500 3.5
4000 4

To convert VA to kVA, you simply divide the apparent power in VA by 1000.

For example, if you have an apparent power of 2000 VA, you can calculate the equivalent in kVA:

kVA = 2000 VA / 1000 kVA = 2

So, 2000 VA is equal to 2 kVA.

This conversion is useful when dealing with larger electrical loads or when expressing power capacity in a more convenient unit.
