# How to convert VA to kVA

How to convert apparent power from volt-amps (VA) to kilovolt-amps (kVA).

### Volt-amps to kVA calculation formula

So apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA) is equal to the apparent power S in volt-amps (VA), divided by 1000:

S(kVA) =  S(VA) / 1000

So kilovolt-amps are equal to volt-amps divided by 1000:

kilovolt-amps = volt-amps / 1000

or

kVA = VA / 1000

#### Example 1

What is the apparent power in kilovolt-amps when the apparent power in volt-amps is 30000VA?

Solution:

S = 30000VA / 1000 = 30kVA

#### Example 2

What is the apparent power in kilovolt-amps when the apparent power in volt-amps is 40000VA?

Solution:

S = 40000VA / 1000 = 40kVA

#### Example 3

What is the apparent power in kilovolt-amps when the apparent power in volt-amps is 50000VA?

Solution:

S = 50000VA / 1000 = 50kVA

#### Example 4

What is the apparent power in kilovolt-amps when the apparent power in volt-amps is 80000VA?

Solution:

S = 80000VA / 1000 = 80kVA
