## How to Convert Kilowatts to Volt-amps

Both *kilowatts* and *volt-amps* measure electrical power. Kilowatts is a measure of real power while volt-amps are a measure of apparent power. Because the amount of apparent power is not always able to used for real work due to the power factor, converting between them requires the formula below.

### kW to VA Conversion Formula

kW = (VA × PF) ÷ 1,000

Kilowatts are equal to the volt-amps times the power factor, divided by 1,000.

**For example,** follow this example to convert 45 VA with a power factor of 80% to kilowatts.

kW = (45 VA × 0.8) ÷ 1,000

kW = 36 ÷ 1,000

kW = 0.036 kW
