# How many kilo volt amp equal 1 kilo volt?

###### Wiki User

Kilovoltamperes, KVA's, are a measure of electrical power, in kilojoules per second (real), while kilovolts, KV's, are a measure of electrical potential difference, in kilojoules per coulomb. The two units are not directly convertible without also knowing the resistance value or the reactance value and the power factor.

A volt-amp or VA is equivalent to watts, provided the voltage and amperage are in phase. So 1 kilo volt amp is the same as 1 kilowatt. Wattage, or power, is equal to volts times amps. So the original question is effectively nonsense. The number of amps depends on the voltage. If the voltage is 1000 volts, then there's 1 amp in 1 kilo volt amp. If the voltage is 1 volt, then there's 1000 amps. If there's 50 volts, then the amperage is 20 amps. And so on.

Kvar = Kilo Volt Amp Reactance.

Amp, Amperes is current. Volt, and any variation, is tension. There's no direct translation between them.

Watts = Amp x Volt Find out what Voltage you're using and then do some simple math to figure it out: Amp = Watt/Volt

Its a bit of a trick question. 1 watt is one volt-amp except in situations where the power factor has increased or decreased that ratio. For instance with a power factor of .8 a volt-amp is equal to .8 watts. So with a perfect power factor 1 kva (kilo-volt-amp) is equal to 1 kilowatt. But if the power factor is something other then 1 you can find it by pf*w=va.

In Direct Current One Kilo Watt is equal to One Kilo Volt-Amp, in Alternating Current however, the KVA may be greater due to inductance. Please see, http://www.answers.com/topic/volt-amps

In case of unity Power factorOne Watt is = 1 Volt - Amp (from the formula P = I x E),One kilo Watt is a kilo Volt Amp.1 kW = 1 kVAFor PF = 0.8, 1 kVA = 0.8 kW

The volt-amps are equal to the volts times the amps, so you need to know the voltage as well as the current.

There is zero amps in one kilo volt amp. The terminology of KVA is (K) kilo meaning one thousand, (V) for volt and (A) for amperage. What is missing from the equation is a given voltage. Formula for finding the answer is I = (VA or W)/V .

A VA is a volt-ampere, or volt-amp, and a kilo (K) is one thousand. This makes a KVA a kilovolt-ampere, or kilovolt-amp. If we have 1,000 volt-amps, and one volt times one amp is equal to one watt (W), which it is, 1,000 volt-amps is equal to 1,000 watts, or 1 KW. All that said, 1 KVA is equal to 1 KW.Sometimes in an ac system, the watts is less than the volts times the amps, and in that case the watts is equal to the volts times the amps times the power factor. The power factor is less than one. The power factor for a typical electric motor is 0.7, so then there are only 700 watts in a kVA.

A watt is equal to one volt times one amp. So with out knowing the amperage there is no answer.

That depends on circuit voltage. 1 watt is equal to 1 volt times 1 amp.

Volt-Amp is apparent power, in direct current Volt x Amps = power with unit of Watt. For Alternate Current Volt-Amp is generally different from real power because the power supply in wave form and might be out of phase and portion of energy is not usable. Volt-Amp is always higher or equal to real power in AC.

No. At 125 volts, the same 15 amp current results in 10 times as much power. Ohm's Law states that amps x volts = power.

Milli volt is one thousandth of a Volt and Milli amp is one thousandth of an Amp. Volt and Amp measure two different things and are not really comparable. Over simplified, here is how it works. Volt measures the 'pressure' that causes current to flow. Current flow is measured in Amps and depends on the how much resistance the 'pressure' has to overcome. Higher the resistance, lesser the current (Amp) for same pressure (Volt)

according to v=i*r,if curent is 1 amp the 1 ohm is equal to 1 volt.AnswerAs ohms are used to measure resistance/reactance/impedance, and volts are used to measure potential and potential difference, you cannot ask how many ohms equals one volt -is like asking, "How many oranges equals one bicycle?"

One watt is equal to one volt times one amp. So with out knowing the amperage in the circuit, this question can not be answered.
