Kilovolt-Amp (kVA)
The unit KVA (kilovolt-amperes) is the power associated with the electric current.
1 kilo-volt-ampere is equal to 1000 volt-ampere. KVA is equal to the square root of 3 (1.732) times amps times volts, divided by 1,000.
Amps (A)
Amps is the flow of electricity as an electrical current.
Specifically, it measures the number of electrons that flow past a certain point per second, so basically one Ampere is defined as the current that flows with electric charge of one Coulomb per second.
It is an online calculator which converts kilovolt-amps and voltage into Amp. It is a simple operating tool and requires you to enter the appropriate units in the given text fields. The calculate tab carry out the calculation once the values are entered correctly.
First step is to select the phases it can either be single phase or three phase. Then you have to enter the kilovolt-amps and the voltage in the respective fields. A single click will execute the calculation and the final answer would be in Amps. Clicking on the reset tab will erase all the previous entries in order to perform new calculations.
The mathematical formulas to convert kVA to Amps are as follow:
Single phase kVA to Amps calculation formula
The current I in amperes is equal to 1000 times the apparent power S in kilovolt-amps, divided by the voltage V in volts:
I(A) = 1000 × S(kVA) / V(V)
3 phase kVA to amps calculation formula
Calculation with line to line voltage
The phase current I in amp (with balanced loads) is equal to 1000 multiplied by the apparent power P in kilovolt-amps, divided by the square root of 3 times the line to line RMS voltage VL-L in volts:
I (A) = 1000 × P(kVA) / (√3 × VL-L(V) )
Calculation with line to neutral voltage
The phase current I in amps amp (with balanced loads) is equal to 1000 times the apparent power S in kilovolt-amps, divided by 3 times the line to neutral RMS voltage VL-N in volts:
I (A) = 1000 × S(kVA) / (3 × VL-N(V) )
