How to Convert kVA to Watts

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

Watts = kVA × 1,000 × PF

The real power in watts is equal to the apparent power in kVA times 1,000 times the power factor.

For example, let’s convert 6 kVA to watts using a power factor of 80%.

Watts = 6 kVA × 1,000 × .8
Watts = 4,800 W
