### What does 193 kva set mean?

KVA is an acronym for killo volt - amperes. It is a measure of
power (both real and reactive) defined as P = Vrms * Irms. If there
is a power factor associated with this, it can be used to separate
the real and reactive power:
P(real) = Vrms * Irms * pf
P(reactive) = Vrms * Irms * (1 - pf)

### What is the definition of real power in AC power systems?

The real power in a DC system is the product of voltage &
current. P = V * I
In an AC system the power is equal to V * I * power factor. The
power factor allows for the fact that the power is less than the
volt-amps. This happens when the voltage and current are out of
phase, i.e. if they reach their peak value at different points in
the AC cycle. In fact if the phase difference is...
