## How to convert Volts to kilowatts?

### volts to kilowatts calculation formula in case of Direct Current

P=The power P in kilowatts (kw)

V=the voltage V in volts (V)

I=the current I in amps (A)

**P(kW) = V(in Volts) × I(in Amps) / 1000**

So that you can define kw are equal to the voltage(V) times Current(I) in amps divided by 1000

**kilowatts = volts(V) × amps(A) / 1000**

or you can re-write this formula like that

**kW = V × A / 1000**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#1**

Find out the power(P) in kilowatts where the current is 5A and the voltage(V)is 10V in the circuit.

P = 10V × 5A / 1000 = 0.05 kW

### volts to kilowatts calculation formula in AC single phase

P=The real power P in kilowatts (kW)

PF=the power factor PF

I=the phase current I in amps (A)

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

**P(kW) = Power Factor × I(in Amps) × V(in Volts) / 1000**

So that you can define kilowatts(kwh) are equal to PF times cuurent(I) in amps times volts(V)

**kilowatt = PF × amps(A) × volt(V) / 1000**

or

**kW = PF × A × V / 1000**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#2**

Calculate the power(P) in kw where the PF is 0.8 and the current(I) is 5A and the Root Mean Square voltage(V) in the circuit is 100V

Apply the formula for soltution

P = 0.8 × 5A × 100V / 1000 = 0.4 kW

### volts to kilowatts calculation formula in case AC three phase

P=The real power P in kilowatts (kW)

PF=the power factor

I=the phase current I in amps (A),

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

**P(kW) = 1.732 × Power Factor × I(in Amps) × VL-L(in Volts) / 1000**

So that you can define “kw are equal to 1.732 times PF times the Current(I) in amps times volts(V) divided by 1000

**kilowatt = 1.732 × PF × amps(A) × volt(V) / 1000**

or you can re-write this formula like that

**kW = √3 × PF × A × V / 1000**

**Let’s take an example**

**Example#3**

Find out the power(in kilowatts) where the PF is 0.8 and the current(I) is 5A and the voltage(V) in the circuit is 100V

The power P is equal to power factor of 0.8 times current of 3 amps times the voltage of 110 volts divided by 1000.

P(kW) = 1.732 × 0.8 × 5A × 100V / 1000 = 0.6928kW

### How many volts are in a kilowatt?

1W=1J/1s (power=energy per second)

1W=1A.1V (electric power=current.potential differential)

1KW=1000W (K=Kilo=1000)

A kilowatt is a unit used to measure the rate of energy transfer. A volt is a unit used to measure the potential energy of a charge.So it’s like you asked how many miles per hour are in a gallon of gas.

But there are many formulas to define relationship between voltage to power, .

**The easiest is:**

**P=V*I**

Which says that the Power P (in Watts, if you like) equals the Voltage V times the rate of charge flow I (in Amperes).
