How to Convert Volt-amps to Kilowatts
Volt-amps and kilowatts are both measures of electrical power, but they’re slightly different. Volt-amps measure the apparent power in a circuit while kilowatts measure the real power. Because of the power factor they are not always exactly equal.
Use the formula below for the conversion.
VA to kW Conversion Formula
VA = (1,000 × kW) ÷ PF
Volt-amps are equal to 1,000 times the kilowatts, divided by the power factor.
For example, convert 5 kW with an 80% power factor to volt amps.
VA = (1,000 × 5 kW) ÷ 0.8
VA = 5,000 ÷ 0.8
VA = 6,250 VA
