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.
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.
Enter the apparent power in kilovolt-amps and power factor.
