**What is KVA?**

Kilovolt-ampere, also known as kVA, is a unit that is used to measure apparent power in electric circuits.

- In DC circuits, one kilovolt ampere (kVA) is equal to one kilowatt (kW). This means that apparent power, which is measured in kVA, is the same as real power (measured in W or kW).
- In AC circuits kVA is most commonly used.

**What is KW?**

Kilowatts, abbreviated as kW, are a measure of electric power. It is a measurement of how quickly energy is transferred and its value is equivalent to one thousand Joules per second.

**kVA To kW Formula:**

**Real Power (kW) = Apparent Power (kVA) Ã— PF**

Kilovolt-amperes (kVA) can be converted to kilowatts (kW) by entering the apparent power, which is measured in kVA, and the power factor in the following box:
