kVA to watts conversion

How to convert apparent power in kilovolt-amps (kVA) to power in watts (W)

The actual power P, in watts (W) in an electrical circuit is calculated by multiplying the apparent current S, in kilovolt-amps (kVA) by 1000, multiplied by the power factor PF.

P(W) = 1000 × S(kVA) × PF


Watts = the kilovolt-amps times 1000 times the power factor

watts = 1000 × kilovolt-amps × PF


W = 1000 × kVA × PF


Calculate the real power in an electrical circuit, in watts, given that the power factor is 0.7 and the apparent power is 4kVA.


P(W) = 1000 × S(kVA) × PF

P = 1000 × 4kVA × 0.7 = 2800W
