## Kilowatts:

Kilowatts is the standard SI derived unit for describing the amount of power generated by an electrical source. Small amounts of electrical energy are measured in watts, from which the term is derived. High levels of electrical power are measured in kilowatts. Kilowatts are a measure of power that are one thousand times more than watts, with one kilowatt being equal to one thousand watts. Kilowatts are the standard of modern technology and equipment.

During operation, the actual power of an electrical system is measured in kilowatts (kW).

## kVA:

A kilovolt ampere is abbreviated as kVA. The electrical system’s total power consumption can be determined in terms of kilovolt amperes. It’s the sum of an electrical system’s useful and unnecessary power.

## Power Factor:

The power factor is the ratio of real power to apparent power. Power factor is a measure between 0 to 1.

## Conversion Formula:

### kVA = kw / PF

where,

kW = kilowatts.

kVA = kilovolt ampere.

PF = Power factor.

Enter the power and power factor in the form below to convert from kilowatts (kW) to kilovolt-amps (kVA):
