## kW to VA calculation formula

S_{(VA)} = 1000 × P_{(kW)} / PF

The apparent power **S** in volt-amps (VA) is equal to 1000, multiplied by the real power **P** in kilowatts (kW), divided by the power factor **PF**.

So,

*VA = 1000 x kW / PF*

*volt-amp = 1000 x kilowatt / PF*

**For example:**

*Power (P) = 6kW*

*PF = 0,5*

*Power (S) = 1000 x 6kW / 0,5 = 12000VA*
