How to convert kW to kVA

kW to kVA calculation formula

S(kVA) = P(kW) / PF

The apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA) is equal to the real power P in kilowatts (kW), divided by the power factor PF.


kVA = kW / PF
kilovolt-amp = kilowatt / PF

For example:

Power (P) = 7kW
PF = 0,7

Power (S) = 7kW / 0,7 = 10kVA
