## How to convert apparent power(S) in volt-amps (VA) to real power in kilowatts (kW)?

### Volt-amps to kW conversion formula

P=The real power P in kilowatts (kW)

S=the apparent power S in volt-amps (VA)

PF=the power factor PF

**P(in kW) = S(VA) × Power Factor / 1000**

So that you cand define power(P) in kilowatts are equal to VA times the PF divided

by 1000.

**kilowatts(KW) = volt-amps(VA) × PF / 1000**

or you can re-write formula like that

**kW = VA × PF / 1000**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#1**

### How to convert VA to kW?

Find out the power(P) in kw where the apparent power(s) is 2000 VA and the PF is 0.8 in the circuit

Apply formula for the Solution:

P = 2000VA × 0.8 / 1000 = 1.6kW
