##### Convert kilowatts (KW) to Kilovolt-Amps (KVA)

#### To convert KW to KVA , Please provide the values below:

#### To calculate kilowatts to kilovolt-amps, use the following formula:

**The Real Power in Wattsis equal to the Apparent Power in Volt-amps multiplied by the Power factor (pf)**

__For Example 01__

If an Induction motor takes 10KW active power at 0.8 (lag) power factor from the AC source. Calculate the KVA rating of the motor.

__Answer__

Where,

Active power P = 10KW , Pf = 0.8

We Know

S _{ (KVA) } = P_{kw } ÷ Pf

S _{(KVA) } = 10 ÷0.8

S _{(KVA) } = 12.5

KVA = 12.5

__For Example 02__

If an Induction motor takes 8KW active power at 0.95 (lag) power factor from the AC source. Calculate the KVA rating of the motor.

__Answer__

Where,

Active power P = 8KW , Pf = 0.95

We Know

S _{ (KVA) } = P_{kw } ÷ Pf

S _{(KVA) } = 8 ÷ 0.95

S _{(KVA) } = 8.42

KVA = 8.42

##### Frequently Asked Questions:

## What do you convert kw to kilovolt-amps for ?

When you calculate equipment loads, fuses and wire sizes, you convert watts to kVA and device capacity is written in KVA, so kilo watts are converted to KVA.

## What is DC Circuit 1 kw in kilovolt-amps (VA) ?

A watt changes depending on whether the electrical circuit is AC or DC. In a DC circuit, 1 kilo watt is the equivalent of 1 KVA.

## What is AC Circuit 100 kilo watts in kilovolt-amps (KVA) ?

A watt changes depending on whether the electrical circuit is AC or DC. In a DC circuit, 100 watts is the equivalent of 125 KVA. This equivalence means that the power factor of that power supply is 0.8.

## What is the formula for kilo watts to volt-amps ?

Apparent Power(KVA) = Real Power(KW) / Power factor in PF.

## If 100 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

125KVA

## If 125 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

156.25

## If 15 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

18.75KVA

## If 25 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

31.25KVA

## If 30 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

37.5KVA

## If 50 kW is 0.8, how much is KVA?

62.5KVA
