## How to convert volt-amps to amps?

### va to amps converter formula

Apparent power in volt-amps (VA) to electric current in amps (A).

VA to amps calculation formula in case of Single phase

I=The current I in amps

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

V=the Root Mean Square voltage V in volts (V)

**I(in Amps) = S(VA) / V(in Volts)**

So that you define Current(I) in amps are equal to VA divided by volts(V)

**amps(A) = VA / volts(V)**

or you can re-write formula like this

**A = VA / V**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#1**

Find out the Phase current in amps?where the apparent power(S) is 2000 VA and the voltage(V) supply is 100 volts in the circuit.

Apply formula for the Solution:

I = 2000VA / 100V = 20A

## VA to amps calculation formula in case of 3 phase

I=The current I in amps

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

VL-L=the line to line voltage VL-L in volts (V)

**I(in Amps) = S(VA) / (1.732 × VL-L(in Volts) )**

So that you can define Current(I) in amps are equal to VA divided by

the 1.732 times volts(V).

**amps = VA / (1.732 × volts)**

or you can re-write this formula like that

**A = VA / (√3 × V)**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#2**

Find out the phase current(I) in amps where the apparent power(s) is 2000 VA and the voltage(V) supply is 100 volts in the circuit.

Apply formula for the Solution:

I = 2000VA / (1.732 × 100V) = 11.54A
