**Kilowatts (kW) to kilovolt-amps (kVA) conversion**

## How to convert real power in kilowatts (kW) to apparent power in kilovolt-amps (kVA).

### kW(kilowatts) to kVA(kilovolt-amps) conversion formula

S=The apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA)

P=the real power P in kilowatts (kW)

P.F=the power factor PF:

**S(kVA) = P(kW) / PF**

So that you can rewrite this formula as

**kilovolt-amps = kilowatts / PF**

or

**kVA = kW / PF**

**Let's take one Example**

**Example #1**

I want to Calculate the apparent power(in kilovolt-amps) where the real power is 5 kW and the Pf is 0.7?

Apply conversion formula:

S = 5kW / 0.7 = 7.14kVA

**Example #2**

I want to Calculate the apparent power(in kilovolt-amps) where the real power is 10 kW and the Pf is 0.8?

Apply conversion formula:

S = 10kW / 0.8 = 12.5kVA

What is KVA(kilovolt-ampere)

A kilovolt-ampere, a measurement used for the apparent power in a circuit, equal to the multiple of RMS(i.e root-mean-square )voltage and RMS(i.e root-mean-square ) current so that you can say that AC (AC) circuits.While voltage product by amperes is generally termed as ‘watts’.
