**Watt (W):**

In an electric device, the power used in the circuit is measured in watts (W) and is also referred to as the useful power or actual power of the electric circuit.

**1 kilowatt ( kW ) = 1000 watt ( W )**

**Kilo volt-ampere (kVA):**

Kilovolt-amperes (kVA) is the apparent power of an electrical device. It may also be calculated as the product of the electrical circuit’s current and voltage ratings.

**Power Factor:**

In an electric power system, the power factor is the ratio of power that can be utilised in the circuit to the apparent power of the electric circuit.

**Power factor ( PF ) = kW/kVA **

The conversion from kilovolt-amps to watts is as follows:

**W = 1000 x kVA x PF**

This indicates that the real power, expressed in watts (W), can be determined by multiplying 1000 times the apparent power, expressed in kilovolt-amperes, by the power factor.
