Kiloampere Definition and Usage

One kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The kiloampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. A kiloampere is sometimes also referred to as a kiloamp. Kiloamperes can be abbreviated as kA, for example 1 kiloampere can be written as 1 kA.
