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
