# Kilovolt-Amps (kVA) to Watts Conversion Calculator

Enter the kilovolt-amps and the power factor below to convert them to watts.

## How to Convert kVA to Watts

Use the formula below to convert apparent power in kilovolt-amps (kVA) to the real power in watts.

P_{(W)} = S_{(kVA)} × 1,000 × PF

Thus, the real power *P* in watts is equal to the apparent power *S* in kVA times 1,000 times the power factor *PF*.

**For example,** let’s convert 6 kVA to watts using a power factor of 0.8.

P_{(W)} = 6 kVA × 1,000 × 0.8

P_{(W)} = 4,800 W
