How to Convert Megaamperes to Kiloamperes

To convert a megaampere measurement to a kiloampere measurement, multiply the electric current by the conversion ratio. One megaampere is equal to 1,000 kiloamperes, so use this simple formula to convert:

kiloamperes = megaamperes × 1,000

The electric current in kiloamperes is equal to the megaamperes multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megaamperes to kiloamperes using the formula above.
5 MA = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 kA

Megaamperes and kiloamperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Megaamperes

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

The megaampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 109. A megaampere is sometimes also referred to as a megaamp. Megaamperes can be abbreviated as MA, for example 1 megaampere can be written as 1 MA.

Kiloamperes

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.
