## What is KVA (Kilo Volt Ampere)

KVA is the unit of apparent power (S = Voltage * current) for 1phases (S = 1.73 V * I) in the case of 3 phases, apparent power is independent of the power factor.

Kilo volt-ampere is the power rating unit for generators and transformers.

## KW to KVA formula

The formula of KW to KVA is: **S = P * pf**

while

pf: is the power factor

P: is an active power in KW

S: is apparent power in KVA

To convert kilo Watt to kVA, divide the KVA by the power factor of the load

**P = S / P.F**

## Example of converting

A load of 50 kw with pf of 0.8, convert to kva.

As mentioned above S (kva) = 50 * 0.8 = 40 kva

## Example of converting KVA to kw

A load of 100 kva with pf of 0.8, converts from kva to kw.

As mentioned above P (kw) = 100 / 0.8 = 125 kw

## Conversion using the electrical calculator app

Electrical calculations and formulas are done easier than before. You don’t have to make electrical calculation step by step.

Instead, use any free electrical calculator app to perform any type of electrical formula calculations.

I’ve created an easy and free android app for electricians “Fast electrical calculator” this electrical calculator app has a free and paid version.

I recommend using the free version first and then switching to ads free paid version.
