Amps to kVA Calculator
The Amps to kVA Calculator is a tool used to convert electrical current in amperes (A) to apparent power in kilovolt-amperes (kVA). It helps in understanding the power requirements of electrical systems and equipment.
The conversion is necessary when dealing with alternating current (AC) circuits, where the power factor plays a role in determining the relationship between amps and kVA.
The formula for converting amps to kVA is:
kVA = (Amps * Voltage) / 1000
Let’s say you have an electrical load drawing 50 amps of current at a voltage of 220 volts.
Calculating the kVA: kVA = (50 amps * 220 volts) / 1000 = 11 kVA
