Convert amps to kilowatts easily with our precise calculator. Essential for electrical engineers and energy auditors.
The Amps to Kilowatt calculator is a valuable tool that simplifies the conversion of current in Amps (A) and voltage in Volts (V) into power in Kilowatts (KW). Here's how it operates:
Select Current Type: Choose between Direct Current (DC) or Alternating Current (AC).
Enter Current (in Amps): Input the current in Amps for your specific application.
Enter Voltage (in Volts): Provide the voltage in Volts relevant to your scenario.
Calculate the Power: Simply tap the "Calculate" button, and the calculator will perform the conversion in a single click.
Reset Option: Clear all input fields for further calculations using the "Reset" button.
The formula for converting DC Amps to Kilowatts is as follows:
The formula for converting AC Single Phase Amps to Kilowatts is:
The formula for converting AC Three Phase Amps to Kilowatts with line-to-line voltage is:
The formula for converting AC Three Phase Amps to Kilowatts with line-to-neutral voltage is:
Amps (Ampere) gauge the current flow in a circuit, while Kilowatts (KW) quantify the actual working power. Amps represent the flow of electric charge, whereas Kilowatts measure how quickly energy is generated or consumed.
The DC Amps to Kilowatts calculation is employed in direct current applications, where voltage remains constant and does not reverse direction.
The power factor reflects the efficiency of the electrical system. A lower power factor indicates less efficient power usage, while a higher power factor implies better efficiency in converting current to useful power.
In a three-phase AC system, power can be calculated using either line-to-line or line-to-neutral voltage, depending on the specific configuration. Choose the appropriate method based on your system's setup.
