# Amps to Kilowatts (kW) Electrical Conversion Calculator

Enter the current and voltage to convert amps to watts for DC and AC single and three-phase circuits.

## How to Convert Amps to Kilowatts

To convert amps to kilowatts the power formula can be used, which states that I = P ÷ E, given that P is the power in watts, I is current in amps, and E is voltage in volts.

The amps to kilowatts formula derived from the power formula is:

P_{(kW)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)}1,000

Thus, the power *P* in kilowatts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts, divided by 1,000.

**For example**, let’s find the kilowatts of power for a circuit with 12 amps of current at 120 volts

power = current × voltage ÷ 1,000

power = 12A × 120V ÷ 1,000

power = 1,440 ÷ 1,000

power = 1.44 kW

## Single-Phase AC Circuit Amps to Kilowatts Conversion

Conversion of amps to kilowatts for single-phase AC circuits using the power factor can be done with a slightly different formula.

P_{(kW)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF1,000

Thus, the power *P* in kilowatts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF, divided by 1,000. Try our power factor calculator to get the power factor if needed.

## Three-Phase AC Circuit Amps to Kilowatts Conversion

### Using Line to Line Voltage

The formula to convert amps to kilowatts for three-phase AC circuits where the line to line voltage is known is:

P_{(kW)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF × √31,000

Thus, the power *P* in kilowatts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by the square root of 3, divided by 1,000.

### Using Line to Neutral Voltage

The formula to convert amps to kilowatts for three-phase AC circuits where the line to neutral voltage is known is:

P_{(kW)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF × 31,000

Thus, the power *P* in kilowatts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by 3, divided by 1,000.

## How to Convert Amps and Ohms to Kilowatts

It’s also possible to convert amps to kilowatts using circuit resistance with this formula:

P_{(kW)} = I_{(A)}^{2} × R_{(Ω)}1,000

Thus, the power *P* in kilowatts is equal to the current *I* in amps squared multiplied by the resistance *R* in ohms, divided by 1,000.
